Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
After being kicked out of her sixth foster home in a year, Harper gets told she's got one more chance. If she she blows it, she'll be taken to juvie until she's eighteen.
That last chance comes in the form of Shadowford home, a place for girls struggling with the care system.
On the first day of school Harper can see that the cheerleaders rule the social side of the school. They're thought of like queens. Everyone Harper talks too are obsessed with them, but Harper can feel there's something not quiet right.
Who are the cheerleaders? And why is everyone obsessed?
In some parts, this story did drag. Though, it did get better as it progressed.
I really didn't get why everyone was obsessed with the cheerleaders. Everyone was either talking about them, gawking at them, or wanting to be them.
Harper wasn't like that though... or at least, before they gave her attention.
That really annoyed me, but then i actually wanted her to get closer to them, because they started being a bit dodgy.
The bit with the murder was quite good, but i feel like the police forgot about the case after questioning Harper.
I did really like the ending, i was really surprised on who the killer was.
I'll probably read book two, but i'm not in desperate need.
