Get Dirty
Blurb (from Goodreads):
The members of Don’t Get Mad aren’t just mad anymore . . . they’re afraid. And with Margot in a coma and Bree stuck in juvie, it’s up to Olivia and Kitty to try to catch their deadly tormentor. But just as the girls are about to go on the offensive, Ed the Head reveals a shocking secret that turns all their theories upside down. The killer could be anyone, and this time he—or she—is out for more than just revenge.

The girls desperately try to discover the killer’s identity as their personal lives are falling apart: Donté is pulling away from Kitty and seems to be hiding a secret of his own, Bree is under house arrest, and Olivia’s mother is on an emotional downward spiral. The killer is closing in, the threats are becoming more personal, and when the police refuse to listen, the girls have no choice but to confront their anonymous friend . . . or die trying.

“I, Kitty Wei, do solemnly swear, no secrets – ever – shall leave this square.”

This book was a bit slow, but we got to find out who the killer was – so Yay!!

The characters in this didn’t irritate me quite so much as they did in the first book, and they did seem to think a little bit more about what they were doing, even if they still weren’t awesome detectives.

“Olivia gasped and rushed over to one of the computers. “Oh my God! We have to unsend that email.””

The storyline in this was all about finding the killer. Who put Margo in the hospital? Who is knocking people off? Who is continuing the work of DGM? And while we didn’t get answers to any of this until the very end of the book, and while this frustrated me, this was a much more interesting story than Get Even! I really wanted to know what was going on, and every prediction as to who the killer was was wrong!

“We sent an anonymous email to Sergent Callahan with all our evidence against Christopher Beeman.”
Ed whistled low. “Yeah, they’re going to delete that in about ten seconds.”

The ending to this was pretty good, and I didn’t guess the identity of the murderer! I almost feel like going back and re-reading both books to try and see if there were any clues that I missed, but considering how much the pace in these books irritated me, I’m not sure I have the patience right now! I will say that this was a big improvement on Get Even though!
