Hello Gemmies! I just heard about Marlene Perez's YA series....Dead Is. Described as Veronica Mars meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer, this series follows two snarky teen sisters who use their psychic powers to solve murders. Buzz for the series is being generated again since Disney announced they optioned the first three books for television. As such, I thought It would be a good time to read these gems. And hopefully, by the time I am done I will have a great show to enjoy as well. Listed below is the reading order of the series to help get you started.
Dead Is Reading Order:
1. Dead Is The New Black

3. Dead Is So Last Year

Synopsis of Dead Is The New Black from Goodreads:
Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the pyschic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom-shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!
Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can’t help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new “look.” Samantha appears a little . . . well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style.
Is looking dead just another fashion trend for Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad.
