Pretty Little Liars meets Beautiful Creatures in this steamy southern suspense novel about a group of powerful teen voodoo queens who will do anything to get what they want.
Eveny Cheval has just moved back to Carrefour, Louisiana—a town she left fourteen years ago in the wake of her mother's suicide. An outsider at first, Eveny quickly finds herself embroiled in a web of intrigue, betrayal, and lies. Enter Peregrine Marceau, Chloe St. Pierre, and their group of rich, sexy friends collectively known as the Dolls. They want to bring Eveny into their circle and share their darkest truths with her.
Eveny is wary of these girls, but after murder strikes and she discovers that everything she believes about herself, her family, and her life is a lie, she's forced to turn to the Dolls for answers. Something's wrong in paradise, and it's up to Eveny, Chloe, and Peregrine to save Carrefour and make it right.
Eveny Cheval has traded her beloved Brooklyn for the remote bayou town of Carrefour, La., her family's longtime home and the place where her mother committed suicide. She soon meets the Dolls, mysterious, model-gorgeous teenagers (one of whom carries a slithering snake with her at all times) who rule Carrefour. The Dolls pull Eveny into their elite group, and it isn't long before she learns that they're all about voodoo, and that she's the most powerful voodoo queen in town, thanks to her mother. The magic-induced makeover is a bonus (that's how the Dolls get their amazing looks), though the bodily possessions are a little off-putting; the real downside, however, involves being hunted down by a centuries-old organization determined to kill them. First-time author Sullivan's Dolls call to mind the Cullen clan, and the setting has echoes of the Beautiful Creatures books. But while the setup and gothic Southern atmosphere are familiar, Sullivan's talent for moving the action forward makes for a breezy, engaging read. Ages 13 up.

I have to admit, it’s a pretty good read. But, idk if this is just me, but the story is kinda hard to follow. Overall, good book :)
