What the Critics Say

"This is a page-turner with sharp dialogue and psychologically intriguing viewpoints. Readers are continually kept off balance as Jazz and her motives change like shapes in a fun-house mirror." (Booklist)

    "Great character piece, disappointing ending."

    Dead Girls Don’t Write Letters is an interesting character piece but really let down by a rushed and confused ending.

    I generally don’t like short fiction because I prefer full, well-paced emersion in a world but obviously I can’t fault DGDWLfor needing to be direct and succinct.

    While it wasn’t the elegantly drawn story, though, it deftly painted Sunny’s heartbreak – not at the loss of her sister but at being the one her family and community would have, frankly, preferred to lose.

    Sunny’s homelife is heartbreaking and I didn’t expect to be so affected by such a quick glimpse.

    The concept of a mourning family receiving a visit from their dead daughter was intriguing but ultimately the plot is why let the story down for me. Clearly written with the intention to try and put in multiple twists at the end, Dead Girls is doesn’t provide the cathartic family drama that would have been so very rewarding given the surprisingly deft character work. It also doesn’t exactly work as a mystery/psychological thriller for me because of the lack of time to develop tension.

    Despite the ending though, I would recommend Dead Girls to anyone after a short, intense and heartbreaking character piece with a female protagonist that is instantly sympathetic.
