Dead Is the New Black (Dead Is #1) by Marlene Perez

Dead Is the New Black (Dead Is, #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the pyschic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom-shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!

Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can’t help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new “look.” Samantha appears a little . . . well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style.

Is looking dead just another fashion trend for Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dead Is the New Black (Dead Is, #1) “I think what’s happening to Rachel is supernatural, and even the best hospital can’t cure that.”

This was a paranormal/fantasy story featuring vampires and psychics.

Daisy was an okay character, and I could see why it might be annoying to be the only normal one in a family of psychics. Taking it upon herself to investigate a murder was probably taking things a little too far though.

The storyline in this was about teen girls being attacked, and one turning up dead, and Daisy believing it to be the work of a vampire. We did also get a bit of romance, but I found the story a little dull really.

The ending to this was okay, but I’m not sure I’ll continue the series.

  1. Too bad this one is kind of a dud in a way. I've had a ton of books that I've read like this one in the past few days where they were good or just okay and not really ones I'm going to follow up reading the others in the series.
