Review: Slice of Cherry - Dia Reeves

Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 512 pages
Publisher: Simon Pulse (January 4, 2011)

Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around.

It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities….

I want more! There is something enthralling about having crazy people as our main characters. I thought Hannah was bad but wow Kit and Fancy take the cake. At first I thought Kit was the worse of the two but somewhere along the way I think Fancy stole the show. Only in a town like Portero could two crazy sisters meet two crazy brothers and manage not to destroy the cosmic balance of the universe. I really can't say too much without giving stuff away but I can that that this book was bloody, gruesome, and at times down right creepy. I really hope Dia Reeves keeps writing about Portero and its crazy citizens because these books are awesome in a train wreck kinda way. You know you should look away but you just can't. If you liked Bleeding Violet you will like this one as well. If you haven't read Bleeding Violet what are you waiting for? Go to the library or a book store and pick up a copy of each...You won't be disappointed. 5 stars from me!
