They were the boys any good girl knew to avoid.
Rich and privileged.
Gorgeous and cruel.
The poster boys for rebellion…their tongues so sharp they cut to the bone.
We worshipped them despite their dangerous games.
We laughed even as we cried.
It was all fun and games until the first dirty girl died.
Now, as the bodies pile up, I believe I can endure their wicked ways. Only time will tell if I’ll escape.
Because when wealthy boys are accustomed to getting everything they want, not even the lives of those around them are too high an asking price.
Dirty Girls by Lily White is helping with my fascination with serial killers apparently. This is a murder, mystery, romance that makes you want to shake Olive half the time! After their parents death, Nolan drops out of school to raise Olive. He’s being selfless and putting her education in front of his own dreams but then Soren comes back into the picture.
Ah Soren. The hot guy that every one wants to be and every girl wants to bang. He is the center of attention and runs the pledges. When he is released from prison that is exactly what he plans to do. But who would want to pledge and do the things these guys make them do?! Ahh young people, I don’t understand them.
Olive doesn’t want to be a part of the in-crowd. She just so happened to sleep with Soren before he went away and doesn’t want to be a part of him anymore. But Soren has other plans for little Olly. He plans to rule her every moment all while girls are being killed around them.
I wouldn’t consider this book a trigger but some of the killings are detailed and might be disturbing for some people.
When Olive decides she’s old enough to be an adult, Nolan disappears and we don’t know if he is dead or alive. Apparently he’s fine even though he won’t answer Olives desperate attempts to hear from him. If I were Olive, I would have left and just said screw it and left, no reason to stay. Olive is a little meek and just wants to be left alone, but at the same time, she wants Soren.
I felt like the ending was a little rushed but overall really enjoyed the book. Olive is pushed to her limit while thinking she is being kidnapped. We find out who the serial killer is but I wish that scene had played out more. It was just an after thought and the book wrapped up. I enjoyed the ending but was a little disappointed after all that anticipation.
