Description - Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James

'Truth or dare?' she asks.

I hesitate. I have so many secrets, so many things I don't want to reveal, but this is only a game, only a bit of fun. 'Truth,' I say finally. 'I can imagine one of your dares, and I don't fancy running down Oxford Street naked tonight.'

'Truth,' Alice says slowly, drawing out the vowel sound as if she's savouring the word. 'Are you sure? Are you sure you can be completely honest?'

'I think so. Try me.'

'Okay.' And then she looks at me curiously. 'So. Were you glad, deep down? Were you glad to be rid of her? Your perfect sister? Were you secretly glad when she was killed?'

Katherine has moved away from her shattered once-perfect family to start a new life in Sydney. There she keeps her head down until she is befriended by the charismatic Alice, and her life takes her in new directions. But there is a dark side to Alice, and as we learn the truth of Katherine's sister's death and Alice's background their story spirals to an explosive finale.

A potent, intense and simply unputdownable psychological thriller from an exciting voice.

Book Review: Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James - Reviewed by (24 Jul 2011)

I bought this book as the blurb sounded interesting. Later I was worried that it would be a bit immature for me, after all it has been way too many year since I was in high school. Amazingly I found it was written in quite a mature manner. It did not take long to get into this book and indentify with the main character. It was very addictive. It really draws you in and makes you want to shake the main characters to wake them up. Seriously, how dare my life stop me from reading it when I wanted too. I was very disappointed that the book finished. Lots of beautiful twists to keep you interested. Loved it!!

Book Review: Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James - Reviewed by (02 Jun 2011)

Katherine is a girl who moves to a new town after a family tragedy - her sister was murdered. She had no friends until Ariana, a popular and a beautiful girl befriends her. Katherine isn't sure why Ariana talks to her, but her company is appreciated and she starts to feel happier about life after her sister died. Ariana is nice and friendly.

She soon finds out that she can be heartless and uncommitted.. but Ariana's still a good person.. isn't she? A great psychological thriller that will keep you turning the pages. It was agonising, interesting and so addictive to read. The plot is great with unexpected twists. Rebecca James writes so well, you can feel the character's emotions, and pain, so clearly. I LOVE this book. I was so sad to have it end, but it was a perfect way anyway. Deffs recommend it! Rate: 5/5
