Dead is the New Black

Dead is the New Black follows Daisy, a teen who come from a family of psychics. Except she doesn't seem to have any powers. She wants to help out when a series of attacks on cheerleaders at her high school begin, so she joins the squad to find clues and she finds out more about her town than she bargained for.

The book has an interesting story but lacks interesting character development. Mom comes home and sits in a chair, oldest sister Rose studies all the time, & middle sister Poppy is hard to peg because her character seems to jump all over the place.
I liked the book, but didn't love it. I think it might have suffered from over-editing because it seemed rushed. There are two more books in the series out and I do plan to read them. There is a lot of potential here.
