The novel Dead Girl’s Society was among some of my favourite books I have read this year thus far. The story follows Hope, a teenage girl with cystic fibrosis who is bored of her regular life in New Orleans, and is looking for any opportunity to get some excitement and thrill. When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group of people who refer to themselves as the ‘Society’, asking her to meet at a warehouse, she immediately jumps at the chance, in hopes of finally finding some excitement in her life. The Society basically invites her and four other girls to participate in a game of ‘thrills and dares’. Many of the challenges the Society gave the girls, to me, seemed way over-the-top farfetched and completely unrealistic for a story about average high schoolers. It just seemed odd to me how a group of 16/17 year olds would just show up at an abandoned warehouse and do everything that a strange Society told them to do, as if they had no morals or common sense. The plot to me was just strange and a little bit alarming, to say the least. However, the characters and the things that they fought for was very well-written to me. Hope, for example, is a very compassionate and isolated character who simply wishes for a bright future despite her sickness and financial issues. The way that she stayed hopeful and true to herself through everything that happened to her was very empowering. Every character had something that they stood for and had something that gave them a reason to participate in Society’s game, which added a great element of action and suspense to the whole story. Overall, I would rate this book a 3/5.
