Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn’t know how lucky I was.
When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends-her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.
Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.
This is Alice’s story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.
I had the opportunity to meet the LOVELY Elizabeth Scott at this year’s TLA and was so impressed by her, that I could not wait to read one of her books!! I could go on and on about how lovely I think Elizabeth is… really she is one of a kind!! I chose Living Dead Girl to read first becuase while at TLA lots of the Librarians and the kids were talking about how much they loved the book… after reading -it was not at all what I was expecting!! This is a dark, and horrifying book! As a parent it makes you hold your baby that much tighter and never want to let them go! The saddest part of this book is the truth behind it, that this kind of sickness lives in our world. Scott writes Alice’s gut wrenching story in such a very unique way! While I did not enjoy the actual story I can appreciate the writing style and did not want to put the book down! You definitely become invested in Alice and want to know how her story ends… it is true-It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget!! I will recommend this book to age appropriate people.
