I loved all the Dublin books in the series and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one, but I am now about halfway through and getting a really bad feeling that this is some YA retread of The Craft...?

Sarah Page All of French’s novels have some aspect of a supernatural mystery and I generally like that - it doesn’t all have to be stark realism, but this novel touches on some supernatural happenings with the teenage girls that are never explained or resolved. I also just didn’t care for all the teenage drama. The language (lots of dated slang and teenspeak) didn’t fit with the genre either. The parts from the teen’s POV read too much like a YA novel.
