In Dead Girl Dancing, the second installment of Linda Joy Singleton's Dead Girl series, Amber has a much different mission than she could have imagined. She wakes up in her boy friends' sisters body, in her college dorm room. Since its spring break, Amber, in Sharayah's body, gets whisked off to Venice Beach with two friends where things get crazy. Amber quickly realizes Sharayah had a lot more problems than a messy dorm room when shes told about a stalker. Sharayah's recieved threatening notes, and Amber feels like she's being watched. She even has an altercation with a girl on her way to Venice Beach. Everything from meeting guys and participating in a wet t-shirt contest, to being kidnapped on a boat by a "dark lifer" all take place in this exciting novel. As with the other two, I enjoyed this one and had a hard time putting it down. It wasn't fully what I was expecting from this author, but that made it all the more enjoyable. However, there were a couple minor details that didn't match up. Such as when Amber was on the boat trying to get the G.E.M. from her pocket in clothes she was no longer wearing. This book also foreshadows what will happen in the last one, involving her friends and boy friend. Although, Amber's two best friends arn't involved in this book too much, mainly because shes gone so far away from home. Overall, the book flows nicely and it was probably my top favourite of the series. I've thoroughly enjoyed all three, and would definitely recommend them to anyone in this age group.
