Call Number/Link: Teen Fiction St Claire, R.
Synopsis: Kenzie Sumerall just found out she’s on the the list. The list of the top ten Veinna High Juniors who are “hotties”. Unsure how she made the list at all, let alone be fifth, Kenzie tries to brush away the extra attention brought on by the list. She could care less about all the parties or the power the list brings. All she wants is to continue on as normal and hopefully get into Columbia. However, any hope of that is shattered when the girls from the list starting dying one by one. Fluke accidents that seem just a little too suspicious. Could the theory that the list is cursed be true or something more sinister going on? And more importantly, can Kenzie figure it out before she’s next…
I was ultimately disappointed in this book. The concept was rather silly, but it was fast paced and full of action. One I could totally see reluctant readers running with. However, the slut shaming that’s included is ridiculous. It’s unnecessary and doesn’t add to the story at all. Instead it demeans girls for either being sexual or how they wear their eyeliner. I would have loved to have taken this one to the schools, but the slut shaming made that not possible. I would be extremely careful when recommending this one. (I did write up more on this for my blog, if you want to see the full post.)
