Boring Girls by Sara Taylor
Rachel is excelling in school academically but as for the social scene she lives a life of solitude. Except when, being bullied by Brandi.
On the way home from her last day of school, for summer break. Rachel hears metal music from a car stopped at a stop sign. The music matched how she felt at that moment. She noticed one bumper sticker she could actually make out the font of, DED.
So, she went to the music store and inquired about DED (Die Every Death) Rachel was hooked.
During the summer she became interested in other metal bands and buying metal magazines. She knew there were others out there like her, she just had to find them.
Once the new school year started she began to dress differently. In hopes of attracting others like her.
During Art class Rachel meets Josephine her first real friend, who transferred from another school.
Although, they were friends they had different tastes, interests etc.
After several attempts of Josephine trying to get Rachel to go to a party with her to meet her former school friends, Rachel reluctantly agrees.
While at the party things did not go as Josephine had hoped but Rachel had met a new friend.
Unlike with Josephine, Rachel felt a connection of common interest with Fern. The two friends shopped at the same places and enjoyed the same music.
Rachel and Fern left the party and made plans for Rachel to go to a concert with Fern and her friends.
Rachel and Fern became such good friends that they decided to start a band.
The band was all fun and good times. Until, what was to be an AMAZING night turned into Hell on Earth for Rachel and Fern.
The two boring girls begin their dark twisted spiral of revenge.
This book was AWESOME! While it was dark, extreme, intense, and twisted. I understand that good and bad experiences change us. When a person has such a traumatic experience they either fight to overcome and see the light or let their inner demons fester in the darkness and rip them a part from the inside out. The type of music has nothing to do with it.
