A slickthriller from the author of HEXED, perfect for fans of THE CELLAR by Natasha Preston and PANICby Lauren Oliver. You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare. Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she's breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she's tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she's going to afford college.And she's bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb. When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she just might win some real money. But the Society isn't all that it seems . . . and soon Hope finds that playing the game isn't a choice-it's a requirement.… (mer)

This review contains spoilers!

The bad girl (Hartley Jensen), the Smart Girl (Nicole Morgan), the Rich girl (Farrah Weir-Montgomery), the Sporty girl (Lyla Greene) and the Sick girl (Hope) all get a mysterious evite which says something like:
You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Come to 291 Schilling Rd. at midnight tomorrow. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare. Their invitation also all have something personal included and in the cases of everyone but Hope, the personal information is in the form of blackmail. All 5 girls accept the invitation and when they meet at the abandoned warehouse they find a letter which says they’ve been selected to participate in a series of dates where the winner will get $100,000. They will be punished if they don’t participate or if they cheat or tell anyone else. To prove the legitimacy of the game, everyone is given $1000. After some discussion, the girls select the first dare which is to go to Six Flags in the ninth Ward. Scale the Mega Zeph roller coaster. And take a leap of faith. They have to climb to the top of 100 foot roller coaster and bungee jump.
As the story progresses, Hope, the narrator, is desperate to discover who is manipulating them into these dares. It becomes increasingly obvious that whoever it is has intimate details about each of the girls that no one else could possibly know. The source of that knowledge and the source of the money eventually gets explained in a satisfactory way. This was a fast paced enjoyable story that I think would be very engaging to grade 8 or 9 girls. ( )

Um, 7 stars. Read this in just about 3 hours tonight because I could just not put it down, like, at all. I would reread this over Girl on the Train any day. This is a tightly written (edited!) story that can be standalone or built upon because the ending was perfect. ( )

Cystic Fibrosis has been getting a lot of attention in recent years. I'd never heard about it until Bates Motel or Foreverland, one of the two. I like being aware of diseases like this because if books, movies, shows, and people bring it out to the forefront more people will care. Hope has this illness that basically gives her a shorter life span. Her mother is super protective of her so basically she's been shut in her home since the last time she's gotten real sick. Then, suddenly, comes this e-mail that dares her to come to this spot. She's going to be playing a game. What she doesn't know yet is the lengths to which the Society will go to make sure she and other girls, all different, stay playing the game. No cheating, no leaving, until the game is finished or the Society will make sure you are punished.

From this cover and from the way the characters were written this felt very much like a middle grade book to me but it's geared toward YA. I felt like I was going to feel it was MG before I read the story so that didn't throw me off too much. The mystery is what ended up throwing me off. I hadn't anticipated how much I would need to know who was behind everything and why. The growing suspense had me flying through Dead Girls Society. Thankfully, the reveal and reasoning was satisfying.

It took me a while to get to know everyone's names but they became memorable when things started hitting the fan. All of the girls, save Hope, had been blackmailed to play the game. It seems like the Society has been keeping tabs on these girls. Hope really was the only one who wanted to figure out who the person/people were behind everything because nothing felt right. I like how the girl everyone think is weak, including herself, ends up being the most daring of them all.

Hope likes a boy. A boy who just happens to be her best friend. I didn't really care for this part of the story so I mainly ignored it. I did like the other love interest more. As a whole though, the mystery blew this part of the story away.

The mystery and suspense kept me guessing in Dead Girls Society. I think that the story could have been written more like it was a YA book to bump everything higher in my opinion. I enjoyed how everything was resolved and Hope's deducing skills. That cliffhanger at the end was killer!

Hope Callahan is fed up. Her mother treats her like a fragile doll, pulling her from school to deal with her cystic fibrosis. Her best friend and crush, Ethan, is overprotective of Hope and dating other girls. So when a mysterious invite from The Society asks her to sneak out at midnight and play a game of dares, she jumps at the chance of excitement. The game brings out four more girls, each with a different reason to play. As the dares become more dangerous, the girls band together to try to find out who is behind The Society. The plot twists and turns as Hope learns that the people closest to her may be tied up in the insidious game. Dead Girls Society is an interesting premise that falls flat. The book rushes through Hope figuring out the game and drags through her interactions with Ethan. Side characters, especially the other girls, come off as one-note. Overall, this book is a decent read for teen fans of YA suspense but a pass for anyone else. Recommended for grades 9 and up. ( )

Hope is sick. Really, really like going to die young sick. She has trouble breathing and requires a special diet, medicine and treatments. She misses a lot of school but her best friend Ethan is really good at picking up her assignments as well as moral support. Hope's mom has devoted her life to taking care of her sick child. But Hope is in high school and she craves some freedom. When she gets a strange invitation to a secret meeting, Hope can't resist. She sneaks out of the house and starts a dangerous adventure.

This was an enjoyable read. I really liked Hope who is stronger than she thinks she is. And I like the other teens in the book for the most part. There is a lot about finding your strength and believing in yourself. Not just for Hope but for all the kids in the story. You will need to suspend disbelief a bit, but it is worth it. I have read other books by Krys, and I really like her writing style. This is a stand alone that I think tweens and teens can enjoy. ( )
