Book Review - Graveyard Girls: 1-2-3-4, I Declare a Thumb War

Graveyard Girls: 1-2-3-4, I Declare a Thumb War

About the Book
In 1-2-3-4 I Declare a Thumb War meet Whisper, Frannie, Sophie, Gemma, and Zuzu, five friends who tell eerie tales by night and navigate middle school drama by day.

MISERY FALLS, OREGON, IS ABUZZ AS the 100th anniversary of the electrocution of the town’s most infamous killer, Silas Hoke, approaches. When a mysterious text message leads the girls to the cemetery—where Silas Hoke is buried!—life can’t get any creepier. Except, yes, it can thanks to the surprise storyteller who meets them at the cemetery, inspires the first-ever meeting of the Graveyard Girls, and sets the stage for a terrifying tale from Whisper that they’ll never forget.

This slightly scary, extremely addictive story is the first in a five-book series by New York Times bestselling authors Lisi Harrison and Daniel Kraus.

My Take on the Book
This was a great first book in a new series! The book was a fun read with some great new characters too. The main characters you meet include
  • Whisper, the track star. Whisper lives with her father and Miles, her ten year old brother. 
  • Frannie, the actress. Frannie has twin baby brothers, Sami and Balthazar. 
  • Sophie, the straight A student. Sophie puts a ton of pressure on herself to be as good as her sister. 
  • Gemma, the leader. Gemma is the Grim Sleeper who truly believes in the supernatural.
These are only some of the characters and there are many more in the book too! 

The book has a ton of twists and turns but in the end is about friendship and more. 

The book moves fast and by the end I know I was hoping to have another book to ready too.

All-in-all this was a great book!
