Book reviews: Bad Girls with Perfect Faces, by Lynn Weingarten

Weingarten, Lynn. Bad Girls with Perfect Faces. Simon Pulse, 2017. 304p. $17.99. ISBN: 978-1481418607. Gr. 10-adult. P8 Q6 

This psychological thriller combines elements of romance, reality, humor and horror. Even though it’s not as good at the author’s previous novel, Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls, it’s an engaging read for more mature high schoolers.  There are a lot of twists and turns to this complicated story that is told from multiple perspectives, and even though their dialog is at times a bit cliché, it reminds readers of people they might’ve known, making it even more relatable.  Criminal activity, substance abuse, sex, and violence make this a book that appeals to older high schoolers and adults.  The ending of the book is a huge surprise, despite how dysfunctional everyone is.
