Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

Alexis was home and her sister was too and asked her what was going on, Alexis told her everything starting with how Lydia washer friends or she had been until Alexis had killed her. Kacey was confused because she knew that she was the one who had found Kendra and that the lens cap that was found was hers because she had checked the camera, Alexis told her that she had seen the ghosts because Lydia had splashed chemicals at Alexis’s eyes causing her to go blind so she went to Aralt to fix them and her eyes are now different, there haunted, she can see every ghost. After they had finished talking they heard the garage door open and checked the time seeing that it was too early for their parents to be home from work and saw Agent Hasan following behind them, her mothers face white with terror in her eyes. “Go hide Kasey” Alexis said, she was not going anywhere without her sister but Alexis told her that it was for the best and she didn’t want Kasey to get caught up in all of that stuff again so sent her off giving her a hug and saying goodbye. She went out the back door into the backyard and ran from there who knows where she was going but it would be safer than the house. As the story proceeds there becomes more exciting and unexpected things the only thing I can do is wonder what will come next?

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

Alexis parents stood side by side her mother staring intensely at the floor and her father directly at her, her mother's face was now gray and she said “ you can’t just take her”, with a blank look on Agent Hasan’s face she had proof she had a file that was signed by the judge for Alexis to be evaluated and seek treatment because she was a threat to her self and to others. Alexis was told to quickly pack a bag and then they would be on their way. Just like that a few minutes later Alexis was in the back of Agent Hasan’s car all by herself not making a peep, as they neared the institute the road began to twist and curve in many different directions. She was at Harmony Valley at this time and was having her bag searched to make sure there were no weapons, she was then escorted to a large room with a hospital bed and was questioned by Agent Hasan. Once the interrogation was over she was sent to her room to put her things away and was warned that in the morning she would see the doctor to get a prescription for medication. Being forced into a vehicle because you're accused of murder but you're actually possed, being taken from your family because you are labeled as crazy all of these things are wrong and they do not show the rights a person has.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

After the nurse left the room her roommate introduced herself, her name was Haley and her only suggestion was that Alexis was not to stab her in the middle of the night. The next morning she met with her doctor and got a medication prescription but she didn’t even have a doctor so she was unsure how that worked. Her parents came to visit bringing her a couple of books, scented lotion, a comfortable t-shirt, and yoga pants, and her sister sent her love but decided not to come. On the seventh or eighth day, she was called for a visitor, she thought maybe her parents or Kasey but it was neither it was Jared. They sat on the couch having a very weird conversation and the Haley walked past asking Alexis who he was and Alexis getting cut off by Jared told her that he was her boyfriend, Haley told him that he was very nice to visit Alexis while she was in the institute because many others guys would never come. After Haley was out of the room Jared went back to talking telling Alexis that what they had was special and that Liana was keeping them together by killing anyone who got in their way of being a happy couple, Jared had a very poor theory behind why she was still around even though she was dead and Jared had moved on, the theory was that she loved him very much when she was alive and wanted him to have someone else to love him just as much as she did so she protected anyone from getting in the way of that. Killing people so your living boyfriend can be happy is messed up I mean I’m no love expert but I’m pretty sure that's not how a relationship works.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

It was almost 1:00 am and Alexis heard a thud on the floor and popped up, Haley’s bed was empty and then an arm popped up over the side of her bed Alexis shot up and was standing against the wall looking at Haley. It looked like she was being controlled and then it hit Alexis, she had talked to Jared the other day and every girl who had talked to Jared ended up missing or dead because Liana was inside there bodies. As Haley continued to flop around on the round Alexis was frozen with fear and they Haley’s hands went around her neck causing her face to turn colors, Alexis trying to pry them off but failing she stops breathing. Alexis was silent them put a hand on Haley’s shoulder there was no movement or that's what she thought, Haley’s eyes popped open scaring Alexis so bad that she jumps back and her face had the bitter and vicious smile of Liana’s face. I think you can guess what comes next, Alexis accused of attacking her roommate and was then interrogated once more and moved to a single person room with more security and staff members on that floor. As I keep reading my book I see that things are getting more violent and there are fewer opportunities that suggest Alexis will be getting out of the institute because of the accusations being placed on her.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

Alexis was sitting in the open area when she heard the music that meant the news were coming on, as she sat and watched there was a report of a missing person a picture came up on the screen and Alexis new that person, it was Kacey and she was missing because she had talked with Jared to tell him where Alexis was and Liana was going to kill her. That night Alexis sat in her room crying but then got a visit from Lydia, she was so glad to see her because she knew now that she hadn’t killed her. Lydia came to help Alexis escape because she knew the way out and it started with finding a phone. Lydia saw a girl in the room next to Alexis’s with a phone and knew where she hid it, it was in the top draw at the very back covered by t-shirts. So while everyone was out of there rooms and the hallway was clear Alexis snuck into the room and grabbed the phone, who was she going to call? She couldn’t call her parents, her sister was missing and Jared would never understand so she called Carter. Lydia had Alexis typing in codes and doing different things to get out but Lydia had one job and important job so Alexis could get out all the way and that task was to distract the security guard, she wasn’t into the office and knocked everything off the shelf that was on the wall behind and made a run for it. I think having a ghost friend would be handy because they could listen in on other people’s conversations and then tell you what they said but its impossible for that to happen.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

When Alexis got outside Carter was already there and she hopped in and was gone, as they neared the town they stopped at a gas station so Alexis could go to the bathroom and Carter could fuel up. Once Alexis was finished she was going back to the car but saw a white light and started towards it but as she continued she couldn’t stop, Lydia had tried everything even walking through her and it was like nothing ever happened. Alexis had been walking for 4 hours and she was dying of thirst literally dying, her mouth was dried out and her eyes were burning and worst of all her legs were aching with made her want to stop and sleep but Lydia told her to keep going because she was just meters away from a road were maybe someone could help her. When she got to the edge of the road she sat down and leaned against a tree closing her eyes but was then interrupted by Lydia being annoying to wake her up and then she was saved by Carter and Megan, they brought her to the car and drove to the gas station to get water and Gatorade to hydrate her. First, she chugged back a Gatorade then vomited that up minutes later so decided it would be best to just sip the water. Alexis has been through a lot for a teenage girl throughout this book, lots of death and lots of scary adventures and crises.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

“We need to find my sister,” Alexis said and that was all she wanted and she wasn’t going to let Liana take it away. Moments later Megan’s phone rang and it was Savannah calling about the dress that Liana’s ghost wore. It was not the dress she died in but the dress she was buried in and the ghost wasn’t a regular ghost because they don't move in pictures but they didn’t know what type of afterlife it was or who or what the power source was. Then they thought about where Kacey could be and it hit Alexis like a bullet, she loved waterfalls little ones and the place that had waterfalls near there hometown was Stewart Canyon, which is the actual name of a place in Banff, Cater told Alexis that he would go to look and Alexis and Megan were going to go to Jared's house and talk with him about the dress and Liana. Jared wasn't home but his father was and he gave them permission to go to Jared’s room and have a look around, the first place they look was in the locked closet and what they saw scared them for life it was a picture of Liana in her casket with Alexis’s face on the body. When they were finished they left and called Jared telling him to meet Alexis at an overlook by the canyon. I feel that there is going to be a tragic thing happen by the way Alexis asked Jared to meet at the overlook, maybe she was going to break-up with him.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

Alexis climbed to the top realizing that Jared was already there and probably had been by the stains on his shirt and the dirt on his jeans, his hair messy and unshowered. What she had said to him sounded crazy but all he said was “we can do this together we don’t have to be in pain anymore” Alexis was confused but then got an answer, he wanted them to jump, jump together so they could be together for the rest of there lives but Alexis didn’t agree. She told her there were other was and she wanted to break-up with him, but he wasn’t going to let that happen. He stepped onto the other side of the guardrail and she went after him not even thinking, Alexis was scared that she was going to fall but then she pushed Jared causing him to fall off of the edge but was still hanging onto Alexis’s hand pulling her the tiniest bit more every second. As she screamed Lydia’s name Jared began to laugh but it didn’t last long, Alexis let go of the edge praying that Liana would save her if she began to fall and then she shock he had loose causing Jared to fall landing on rocks below. At 7:06 a.m. on March 3, Alexis Warren pushed her ex-boyfriend off of a 103-foot cliff, he was dead on impact landing on rocks below. Jared had been right there were search parties her parents included and they were all first-hand witnesses. Alexis Warren is a 16-year-old murderer. This brought a huge twist to the book because I was not expecting death the most I was expecting was a break-up, I can relate to this part of the book because I have been scared before by another person’s actions but I didn’t push them off of a 103-foot cliff.

Re: As Dead As It Gets By:Katie Alender

As Agent Hasen crossed the room Alexis rose and held out her hand, Agent Hasen told her to sit and then started asking her questions about what had been happening and if she knew what she did. By the end of the conversation, Alexis told her everything she knew and Agent Hasen offered her a job and her pay would be to make it so Alexis killed Jared in self-defense and didn’t go to jail. Alexis said she didn’t have anything to lose so she was willing to spill the beans and all of them. The next week Alexis was free of charges and going back to school for the first time in a month and she was nervous, she walked in and got a million different glares and her locker was covered in writing saying how she was mental and a killer. After her morning classes she went to the cafeteria for lunch she didn’t know who to sit with because the yearbook committee didn’t trust her and the other kids were all scared of her so she sat by herself at a corner table but wasn’t alone for long. Two of the yearbook members quit and came to sit with her, her sister and her friends came over and sat with her and Carter came too so she had lots of friends know, way more than before she was called a killer which she thought was weird but she was happy. My book was very interesting but enjoyable, I enjoyed all of the action and unexpected events. I would definitely recommend it to someone who doesn’t get nightmares often.
