Bad Girls Don't DieBook - 2009
When Alexis's little sister Kasey becomes obsessed with an antique doll, Alexis thinks she is just being her usual weird self. Things get weirder, though, when their house starts changing. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner blasts cold air. Kasey is changing, too. Her blue eyes go green, she starts using old-fashioned language, and she forgets chunks of time. Most disturbing of all is the dangerous new chip on Kasey's shoulder. The formerly gentle child is gone, and the new Kasey is angry. Alexis is the only one who can stop her sister -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?

She's backed in a corner, crying. A crowd of kids has gathered around her, and I am one of the crowd. We have planned this for a week, now - since the day we saw her wandering through the graveyard with her doll, and Mildred told us that was a sure sign she was a witch.
We can't have a witch in our town.
"Present yourself, kitty," I said loudly.
A head popped out from behind the tree. My stomach did three flip-flops before recognizing my younger sister, Kasey.
"Present yourself?" Kasey snorted. "Sergent Meow, reporting for duty."
SummaryAdd a Summary
Alexis is not a normal girl, what with her pink hair and anti-cheerleaderism. But then her life gets weirder: she tells her sister a story, but one she did not invent: it was as if she was being used to tell it...
Then, strange things start happening. The boiler turns on by itself; the house is cold with no air conditioning on. But stranger, her sister's eyes swing from blue to green. And her mood swings are just as bad. Will Alexis have the answer to alll these riddles? Or will the cheerleader, Megan, have to give them to her?
