Purple Prose + YA novel review

Living Dead Girl

Book blurb: When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends—her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.

Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.

This is Alice’s story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.

Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott is an incredibly disturbing yet powerful story that will haunt you. The ending is sad and unexpected, but, in a way, you’re almost relieved it did end that way . . . for Alice’s sake. It’s one of those books you want to put down, you really do, but you can’t. It’s also one of those books that leaves you hugging your daughter as tightly as possible and never wanting to let her go.
