Horror. Thriller. Young Adult Fiction. Young Adult Literature. HTML:Scream meets Happy Death Day in this terrifying stand-alone horror novel from YA scream queen Danielle Valentine.
"This terrifying book reads like a horror movie. No, wait. It has the suspense and shocks and screams of TEN horror movies in one. Great nasty fun!" ??R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street

Alice Lawrence is the sole witness in her sister??s murder trial.
And in the year since Claire??s death, Alice??s life has completely fallen apart. Her parents have gotten divorced, she??s moved into an apartment that smells like bologna, and she is being forced to face her sister??s killer and a courtroom full of people who doubt what she saw in the corn maze a year prior.
Claire was an all-American girl, beautiful and bubbly, and a theater star. Alice was a nerd who dreamed of becoming a forensic pathologist and would rather stay at home to watch her favorite horror movies than party. Despite their differences, they were bonded by sisterhood and were each other??s best friends.
Until Claire was taken away from her.
On the first day of the murder trial, as Alice prepares to give her testimony, she is knocked out by a Sidney Prescott look-alike in the courthouse bathroom. When she wakes up, it is Halloween night a year earlier, the same day Claire was murdered. Alice has until midnight to save her sister and find the real killer before he c

* I Got this book for review for my honest thoughts*
I have to admit slasher books are not always my favorite. I sometimes struggle to feel connected to the main characters and then the story just does not capture. Some of this books struggled with this at the the start. Since this book was so short, it had a bit of the not connecting to the characters. But the last 50 pages left me shocked and stunend. I loved the really shocking twsits and turns and wonder if we might be getting more books. It was really shocking read, but want to get clousure in future books. But it def packed a punch, i loved the time taveling elements and also the focus on the sister dyanimcs. I will hope for a sequel!!! ( )

So this is Sliding Doors meets Children of the Corn/Freddie Kruger. Fans of Horror flicks will probably get all the references in this as the author draws on lots of plots from various horror/slasher movies. Basically Alice and her friends have a podcast about said horror films and discuss how to be the Final Girl ( i.e last one alive in the movies). This all seems to come true for Alice when her sister is stabbed to death after catching the school janitor ( duh) in the corn field on Halloween chopping off a girl's arm with a chainsaw. fast forward 12 months and many people believe he is innocent and only Alice's testimony can put him in jail when a Sidney Prescott look-a-like ( she is the Final girl in Scream) sends her back in time to that Halloween night with the knowledge that she can stop what happened.
So of course what happens is a carnage fest as character after character get killed as we the reader have to try and guess who the killer really is. Must admit I guessed wrong and was disappointed with the end of the book. Read it and be the judge yourself. Oh for MATURE readers BTW as one chapter is entitled "Stay out of the F.....ng Cornfield!"

The Short Version:
I am NOT a horror/slasher movie fan, but watching Alice try to apply the Final Girl rules to her actual life as she runs through a cornfield with someone panting at her heels...while also acknowledging that the audience would be shouting advice at her if she were in a movie - well that is subversive meta fun. And I love subversive meta fun.

Alice Lawrence's life is torn apart when a Halloween party turns into bloodsoaked horror in a corn maze and she sees her beloved sister's death. But all is not always as it seems and when her wish to have accompanied her sister into the corn maze is granted, Alice is transported back in time to a year ago with instructions to figure out what REALLY happened before midnight and she can keep the changes she makes - and Not to Die. But as Alice attempts to warn the others who were on the Kill List, bodies keep dropping and she uncovers a ton of unsavory secrets.

The plot twists kept on coming, and while I anticipated some of them from the outset, I was still kept guessing (and second-guessing myself). Not my usual genre (and this hasn't converted me to horror fandom), but I appreciated the narrative voice, the suspense and the twistiness. ( )

Alice is an extremely relatable character. She's the "normal" high school girl who doesn't really fit in with any major clique. She isn't a nerd, or a popular girl, or in with what would be considered the cliche weird group. Alice is just herself and she does her own thing. She does have a sister who is in the popular crowd. Well, she did. Until her sister was murdered. On Halloween night, no less. If that isn't the start of a great slasher movie, I don't know what is. But don't worry, because Alice gets the opportunity to go back in time and wake up on the day her sister was murdered for a chance to save her and stop the killer. Did someone order "Happy Death Day" vibes? It was probably me.

This is an incredible story! It reads like an homage to every great slasher flick out there. If you are a horror movie buff, then this is most certainly a book for you. It has every essence of a great slasher but on a page instead of a screen. Though it's written in such a way that you feel like you're right there in a horror movie. It was like all of your favorite little pieces of every one of your favorite slashers rolled into one book. And it was INCREDIBLE! I want more of them. This is definitely one I'm going to be reading again. The writing style was A and the characters were kickass! ( )
