REVIEW: Good Girls Do by Julie Kenner

Title: Good Ghouls Do (Beth Frasier, #2)
Author: Julie Kenner
Publisher: Berkley
Publication Date: September, 2007
Paperback: 240 pages
Genre: Young Adult
Rating: 4/10

Description: As the vampire population at Waterloo High continues to grow, Beth Frasier realizes that she's on the frontline of saving not only the school, but her hometown. And only one thing is for sure: She's got to find the head vampire and kill him...quickly!

Her only problem? With her classmates quickly turning over to the dark side, Beth doesn't know who to trust or kill.

My Thoughts: The second book in the Beth Frasier series leaves a huge cliffhanger and with only two books currently published, I’m left wondering what will happen next. We find out who Beth’s maker is, but his death does not give Beth or Clayton their humanity back. We are also given a glimpse into a potential triangle between Beth, Clayton and Kevin the vampire hunter.

This book focuses mainly on Beth’s fears that Clayton is trying to kill her so he can regain his humanity after several attempts are made on her life. Beth is also trying to make the formula that will allow vampires to walk in the sun. Though there is some minimal progress and success, it’s not what she or the other vampires were anticipating.

We see more of Beth’s father in this story and are given the news that Beth will be moving in with her father while her mother is in Paris, France for several months working.

Overall, this was an OK story that has some potential to be a really interesting series. I’m still curious to see where it will take me next so I will be looking for the next book when it is published.
