Book Number Three Is: Living Dead Girl!
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Release Date: September 2, 2008
Review Link: http://princess2293.blogspot.com/2008/10/living-dead-girl-elizabeth-scott.html

Elizabeth Scott is a fabulous writer - this year, I've read all of her books. Living Dead Girl is one of my favorites, though it's almost a tie with Stealing Heaven. And Perfect You. haha. However, this book is totally different than all of Scott's others. This book is serious. It deals with a big issue that most young adult authors would be scared to even attempt a book about, in my opinion. And congrats to Elizabeth Scott - she tackled the subject and wrote a wonderful - yet seriously disturbing - novel about it. In it's one hundred or so pages, you will feel the emotion pouring out of the pages, you will be happy for the main character, sad for her at some times, and you will be seriously disturbed. If no one was disturbed by reading this book, then there's something wrong with them.
