An international sensation that The Wall Street Journal called a “publishing phenomenon,” this layered, poignant, and chilling novel of psychological suspense is the year’s most stunning American fiction debut. From its wrenching opening to its shocking climax, Beautiful Malice unfolds a haunting story in which people, motives, and circumstances are never what they seem.Who is Katherine Patterson? It is a question she hopes no one can answer. To erase her past, Katherine has moved to a new city, enrolled in a new school, and even changed her name. She’s done the next best thing to disappearing altogether. Now, wary and alone, she seeks nothing more than anonymity. What she finds instead is the last thing she expected: a friend.Even more unlikely, Katherine’s new friend is the most popular and magnetic girl in school. Extroverted, gorgeous, flirtatious, and unpredictable, she is everything that Katherine is not and doesn’t want to be: the center of attention. Yet Alice’s enthusiasm is infectious, her candor sometimes unsettling, and Katherine, in spite of her guarded caution, finds herself drawn into Alice’s private circle. But Alice has secrets, too—darker than anyone can begin to imagine. And when she lets her guard down at last, Katherine discovers the darkest of them all. For there will be no escaping the past for Katherine Patterson—only a descent into a trap far more sinister . . . and infinitely more seductive.

I'm sorry, but this book just didn't appeal to me - therefore I'm not writing a review. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions about a book, and BM just didn't float my boat. If you want to know why, you are more than welcome to contact me.

Im not sure if I'm alone in this but in my school years I had a friend like Alice. Not crazy like Alice, but similar in the manner of being toxic. Girls tend to be more psychologically damaging as apposed to boys who trend down the path of damaging each other with fists and muscles. Beautiful Malice...

This book was... well... I wasn't that into it. But I don't really feel like writing a full-out review for it so I'll just say that I liked the story. It was nothing amazing, definitely not original, but it was enough to keep you reading. The writing was confusing at first but after a while you get ...

THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR A YOUNG ADULT READER There is no way in hell I would let my young teen read this book. Just another example of an overhyped book! This book is filled with drugs/alcohol, sex and foul language by 17 year olds. To me, I kept thinking of the movie "Fear" starring Reece Witherspoon...
