From Bad to Cursed (Bad Girls Don't Die #2)
by Katie Alender
Publisher: Hyperion
Released: June 14th 2011
Genre: Fiction- YA: Paranormal, Ghost,
How I got it: Bought it

Alexis is the last girl you'd expect to sell her soul. She already has everything she needs--an adorable boyfriend, the perfect best friend, and a little sister who's finally recovering after being possessed by an evil spirit, then institutionalized. Alexis is thrilled when her sister joins a club; new friends are just what Kasey needs. It's strange, though, to see how fast the girls in The Sunshine Club go from dorky and antisocial to gorgeous and popular. Soon Alexis learns that the girls have pledged an oath to a seemingly benevolent spirit named Aralt. Worried that Kasey's in over her head again, Alexis and her best friend Megan decide to investigate by joining the club themselves. At first, their connection with Aralt seems harmless. Alexis trades in her pink hair and punky clothes for a mainstream look, and quickly finds herself reveling in her new found elegance and success. Instead of fighting off the supernatural, Alexis can hardly remember why she joined in the first place. Surely it wasn't to destroy Aralt...why would she hurt someone who has given her so much, and asked for so little in return?

Reviews: As soon as I finished Bad Girls Don't Die I started this book. While not quite as good, I still enjoyed it. Although I found myself wonder after what happened before how could they mess with the supernatural again. This time it is Alexis not Kasey who gets in over her head. The thing is she did it because she wanted to save her sister.
I can't say as I blame her after seeing what she gets out of the deal. Yet I had to wonder if Alexis didn't really want a bit more for herself. So in this book for me the tables were turned, with both sisters working to save the other. There were some interesting twists in the plot that kept me on my toes. I have to say that while I did like this book, I enjoyed the first one more. Though I'm looking forward to reading the third book and seeing what happens.
