The members of Don't Get Mad aren't just mad anymore . . . they're afraid. And with Margot in a coma and Bree under house arrest, it's up to Olivia and Kitty to try to catch their deadly tormentor. But just as the girls are about to go on the offensive, Ed the Head reveals a shocking secret that turns all their theories upside down. The killer could be anyone, and this time he—or she—is out for more than just revenge.The girls desperately try to discover the killer's identity as their personal lives are falling apart: Donté is pulling away from Kitty and seems to be hiding a secret of his own, and Olivia's mother is on an emotional downward spiral. The killer is closing in, the threats are becoming more personal, and when the police refuse to listen, the girls have no choice but to confront their anonymous friend . . . or die trying.
This is the first series that I have read from Ms. Gretchen McNeil and it was the best decision that I could have made. The problem with reading books before they come out is you have to wait another year plus some before the next book came out and as soon as I had my hands on this book, nothing else mattered.
The second part in this series was so much better than the first book. The adventure, the suspense, and the want to keep reading was more intense. This book took the idea of getting back at bullies to a whole other level. This second installment was so much more enticing than the first.
The members of Don’t Get Mad seem to be losing control as things they once thought were in their control are now proving to be working against them. The main characters Olivia and Kitty are having to deal with most of the problems since one of their members is in juvie and the other one in a coma. However, other things are falling down in their lives and finding the killer is something that is only become more and more of a burden.
The romance in this book is interesting and through all that is going on there are lots of little bumps that cause awkwardness through these relationships. One must begin to think that all these girls want is to have regular lives now but that is something they need to push aside.
The ending was unbelievable with its revealing and the plot twists. McNeil writes a compelling novel that will grip you from the beginning. I will be keeping an eye out for other novels from this author and I encourage readers to check out this duology if you haven’t already.
