This book inspired me to write the following poem:

Some Girls Are

Some girls are nice,
Some girls are funny.
Some girls are smart,
Some girls are pretty...

And some girls
Are evil,
Baby-eating sociopaths
(Who deserve to choke to death on their own vomit!)

(Or, you know,
something like that.)

Okay, so, I'm no poet and I know absolutely nothing about poetry, but it's true: some girls are really jacked up; lack anything resembling a conscience. However, some girls do have hearts but are too weak or scared to do the right thing. To be honest I'm thinking this last option is worse than being the evil soul-crushing monster.

I don't know.

My thoughts are all over the place right now having just finished this book. I feel all out of sorts, like my skin doesn't even belong to me or something. I'm going to have to think about it before writing a thorough review. Until then just know this is a great book and I really like it even though it made me squirm the entire time. I don't know the last time a book made me feel exactly like this. Courtney Summers is pretty hardcore. I'm her newest fan. Four stars.

Cecilia Gray This book made me sick to my stomach (not because it was bad...but because it was almost too good at what it set out to do!) - was just posting somewhere that I can't imagine what she'll do with post-apoc/zombie fiction if this is how jacked she can get for contemporary

Frankocean3 i liked the book it was an okay

Celise Most beautiful poem ever written. I applaud you :P And I know this review is old, but I still get that squirmy feeling when I think of this book. It was so good in the most horrendous way.
