About this ebook

Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the pyschic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom-shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!

      Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can’t help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new “look.” Samantha appears a little . . . well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style.

       Is looking dead just another fashion trend for Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad.

This ebook includes a sample chapter of DEAD IS A BATTLEFIELD.

I love love love "dead is the new" series! I bought the first and second at a bookfair in school about 4-5 years ago and couldnt put them down. Was always hoping to read the rest of the series, me not being a frequent of bookstores, but Now I have a bookstore right in the palm of my hand!

I need more! (It's funny how I bought the books in random and picked the first and last/5th series without my knowledge.) Now, I badly needed the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th book!!! T-T
