Review: Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer

Publication Date: September 24th 2013
Publisher: Scholastic Press

Colette Iselin is excited to go to Paris on a class trip. She’ll get to soak up the beauty and culture, and maybe even learn something about her family’s French roots.

But a series of gruesome murders are taking place across the city, putting everyone on edge. And as she tours museums and palaces, Colette keeps seeing a strange vision: a pale woman in a ball gown and powdered wig, who looks suspiciously like Marie Antoinette.

Colette knows her popular, status-obsessed friends won’t believe her, so she seeks out the help of a charming French boy. Together, they uncover a shocking secret involving a dark, hidden history. When Colette realizes she herself may hold the key to the mystery, her own life is suddenly in danger . . .

With her French class on their way to France, Colette Iselin knows somehow that this trip will change her. After going from being secure to a small cramped apartment and shopping for clothes in thrift stores, she just wants to go away and forget about all of that, with her friends by her side. What she didn't bargain was getting tangled within a gruesome string of murders of prestigious kids with rich blood, with more than their decapitated heads in common.
And Colette being next on the list.

Right, now I wouldn't call this paranormal. I mean, it is. But apart from the quick flashes of ghosts, and gruesome murders by said ghost...

Feature & Follow (#4)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly bloghop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This weeks Question:
"What are some of your favorite magazines?"

Since magazines aren't exactly cheap for it's worth anymore (especially the gossip ones, which you can find online anyway.) I don't really buy any. But I used to when I was in school, walking home afterschool, our shop block was five minutes away, so I'd used to go into the paper shop on a Friday and buy one.

Weird mix right? And yes, I used to hang out in the Mosher corner. I do miss my black hair.
