"Don't act. Be."

Star Rating

I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars because it keeps you wanting to know what is about to happen, explains what's going on in very descriptive detail next but it also had a little bit of confusing parts.

The 116 people who reviewed this book on amazon rated it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.


Thriller because it involved murder, identity theft, and biological warfare.


I recommend this book to people who love engaging and a heart-pounding thriller. The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die was filled with mystery and danger. So if that's the kind of stuff you like in a book then I highly recommend The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die. You will not regret it .
