Transcript of A book report on Bad Girls Don't Die

Bad Girls Don't Die
Plot Summary


Alexis is living her life in Surrey High School as usual, but strange events are starting to occur. After she tells a story to her little sister, Kasey, Kasey begins to talk in a old fashion sort of way, her eyes occasionally flash a bright green instead of her usual blue, she seems to not remember certain intervals of time, and she is collecting information about the other students in her class. Alexis has to figure out what in the world is going on, along with dealing with drama from her school, and parents.
Author's Purpose.
Due to the book being
fiction, it is rather easy
to assume the author
created it for the purpose of
entertainment, but another
purpose could be to spark
interest in paranormal activity
and spirits in the reader.
Resolution
Alexis as she learns and learns more information, begins to assume that Kasey is being possessed by a vengeful spirit from the past. She studies how to get rid of such spirits with some difficulty, but eventually finds that spirits that feel like they have unfinished business or have emotions so strong that their souls can be attached to a special item or object. With the help of a girl who she is not so happy about being helped by at first, Megan, she concludes that the spirit is located in a doll hidden away in her house somewhere. As well as stories and from news articles, they conclude the spirit was a young girl named Sara. In an almost fatal end, they destroy the doll, releasing the spirit and vanquishing it to allow it to pass to the other side peacefully.
Conflict
Much of the conflict in the book involves the relationships Alexis has with her friends, family, and especially her little sister Kasey. The way she handles things aren't always the best due to her hot-headed nature, and this proves to lead to problems.

The other main conflict is trying to solve whatever is happening to Kasey, because she surely isn't acting like herself. She is getting more violent and vague, and Alexis
soon begins to realize the true danger of this situation.

Main characters
Alexis Warren
- Our main protagonist
who we follow through the story. Alexis
is a girl with a spunky attitude and a
habit of cutting class. She isn't afraid to
get all up in your face. She has a
passion for film photography, taking
great pride in her work. She happens to
be an outcast at her school, but wants it
that way.
Kasey
Warren
- The little sister of
Alexis, a timid girl who has a rather
obsessive fixation on dolls. She is
outgoing and kind , although a little bit hopeless at the same time.
Setting
Bad Girls Don't Die's setting is
a small modern day town. The book doesn't directly specify what the name of the town is, but due to Alexis going to Surrey High School, we can make a light assumption that the town is called Surrey, but it is not official.
Genre : Paranormal, Horror,
and a tiny bit of romance

Authors Purpose
Due to the book obviously being fiction, it is easy to assume the purpose of the book was to entertian, but we can also draw to the conclusion that the author might have wanted to spark an interest in the paranormal or spirits with the reader.

Connection to the real world
There were many interesting topics that you could look up in Bad Girls Don't Die, but I found that the concept of being possessed caught my eye, so I did some research on exorcisms
An Exorcism "is the practice of evicting demons or other spiritual entities from a person or an area they are believed to have possessed." The method of preforming such an act varies from religions. Exorcisms were uncommon during the 18th century and took place rarely until the 1960 and 1970s when " “a 50% increase in the number of exorcisms performed between the early 1960s and the mid-1970s”
