Bloomsbury, 2011. ISBN: 978-1-59990-628-7.
(Age: 15+) Vicious Little Darlings by Katherine Easer is a magical novel that will keep you spell bound till the last minute. The main character Sarah Weaver is looking for a place in an all-girls collage when she befriends two very strange characters:  Agnes, a control freak who is very protective of Maddy, and Maddy,  a beautiful blonde who always gets what she wants.
During Sarah's first day at the all-girls college, she meets her room-mate Maddy. Maddy is kind, caring and loves her friends. Her best friend, Agnes is like a sister to her and is at her beck and call.
During her period at the college, Sarah gets asked to move off campus with Agnes and Maddy. Living in a small town where there is hardly any suitable men to be with, she meets Reed, a cute artistic intellectual who loves Sarah deeply. Sarah wants to spend all her time with him but Maddy disapproves, more drama occurs in the solution to this problem.
A dramatic ending makes this book truly desirable to read. Perfect for people who love drama, romance and thrill. Age wise, this book would be more suited to fifteen year olds onwards, not a tween novel. A brilliant plot with a brilliant ending.
