Description

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.show more

Our customer reviews

Daisy isn't like the rest of her family. Her mom and sisters, Poppy and Rose, all have psychic powers. The only other "norm" in the family was her dad, but he disappeared and Daisy is starting to believe the rumors about him. Daisy is used to weird though, growing up in the strange town of Nightshade. All of a sudden, however, her ex-friend Samantha is dressing like she's dead and cheerleaders are starting to get deathly sick. Though she might be just a "norm," can Daisy and her friend Ryan really stop this phenomenon? And who else can they even trust? DEAD IS THE NEW BLACK is a short novel packed with mystery, romance, and the paranormal. I expected something a bit different from the story when I first began to read, but that soon changed as I continued...and for the better! This is definitely the start to a fun new series that might surprise a few people who think they know what it's all about. The only complaint I had was that things could be slightly predictable. However, I highly enjoyed this novel and I can't wait for the rest.show more
