Review - The Wicked Girls

The Wicked Girls - Alex Marwood

Apparently, 25 years ago, two 11 year old girls committed a crime, possibly causing the death of a younger child. The first 3/4 of this book alludes to something of that nature. After being released from their respective juvenile facilities, each girl does her best to blend into every day life by creating for themselves the dullest existence ever and then complaining about their choices. One day, they meet again by chance and nothing much happens. During all of this, a serial killer, or maybe more than one serial killer are killing women. Possibly by telling them the story of these two women and causing them to stab themselves. I didn't make it to the end. I don't really care how it ends.


The characters seemed all the same, I stayed confused throughout most of the book about who was who. None of the characters were likable or even remotely interesting making it impossible to make even the slightest connection. I thought that the story lacked any kind of cohesive plot and the story itself was simply boring.


My recommendation - Skip this one.
