Review: How would you feel if two of your best friends were murdered and the killer was never brought to justice? One day Nora and her best friend lose two of their very close friends. Nora, Ellie, Cheryl and Bobbi Jo go to a party the day before the last day of school and plan to meet the next day at school. Ellie and Nora get to school and look for Cheryl and Bobbi Jo but they can't find them anywhere. After school, Cheryl and Bobbi Jo are still no were to be found. While Ellie and Nora head home to get ready for a picnic that the girls had planned for after school, they hear police sirens and rush outside. Then reality strikes home….the reason Cheryl and Bobbi Jo never showed up at school was because earlier that morning the girls were murdered. Nora spends a lot of her summer crying and feeling sorry for herself, and Nora spends her days trying to get over the fact that the two of her best friends have been killed. Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls is a story of hardship, friendship, and growing up that can be enjoyed buy all readers.

Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls was an amazing read, I enjoyed it so much. This story was such an action packed story that always kept me at the edge of my seat. The characters were all based on real people and this book was written about a true event which made the book even better. I enjoyed knowing that this was real but at the same time it was unbelievable because who knew that could happen in real life? All of the characters grew somehow for example everyone became stronger knowing that something's can't be undone This book was such a great read that I will surely read it over and over again for years to come.

I rate Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls a ten out of ten, because it was a great read. The characters were amazingly well detailed so they felt like they could be my friend which was amazing. This book is truly a one of a kind because it's special and is a fun read for anyone that's going to pick this book up. I enjoyed how the book was told from different sides, for example Nora, Ellie, Charlie, Mister Death, Mister Death's brother all told a couple of chapters in the story which made the book come to life. I really enjoy this book because it's like nothing I've ever read before which is great because if something is out of your comfort zone it might actually be good, just try it out. That is why I rate this book a ten out of ten.
