OCTOBER GIRLS: CRYSTAL & BONE

Five days until Halloween and all hell is about to break loose.

And it’s all Crystal’s fault.

Momma warned her not to consort with the dead and tried to teach her the magic spells that would close the portal to the afterlife. But Crystal doesn’t want to be a trailer-trash witch like Momma. She has dreams of going to community college and escaping the Appalachian town of Parson’s Ford.

Her best friend Bone is only too happy to escape the afterlife and help Crystal break the rules. Bone died too young, and she’ll do whatever it takes to remain among the living.

Then a teen movie maker comes to Parson’s Ford, and he has a very special project in mind: a horror movie starring a real ghost. The kids who watch his movies turn into brainwashed zombies. And to totally complicate matters, Crystal thinks he’s kind of a hunk, and she’s afraid her boyfriend Pettigrew only loves her because of Momma’s magic spells.

Now it’s Halloween, the night when the portal to the afterlife is widest, and somebody’s been messing with Momma’s potions. The fate of the world is in Crystal’s hands, but she hasn’t been paying attention to her lessons. And a mysterious figure in the afterlife is urging Bone to stay loyal to her own kind instead of to Crystal.

The movie is rolling, the creatures are stirring, and the brainwashed teenagers are ready to welcome a new star from the other side of the grave.

Crystal and Bone must overcome drama queens, coffin cuties, and mangled magic if they want to remain best friends forever—but at this rate, forever may not last much longer.

Format:Kindle Edition
This young adult book read as an unusual mix of horror and comedy. Crystal Aldridge, the main character was meant to be learning how to become a witch and take over from her mother as guardian of the orifice, but she really couldn't be bothered. She came across to me as a pretty dull and shallow character who I couldn't find any love for. Bone, on the other hand, was a real character. Full of fun and with a great personality. Some of the one-liners she came out with and stunts she pulled had me laughing out loud.

Spells going mightily wrong, slimy holes appearing in walls, creatures of the underworld and unborn film stars made this a funny and extremely quirky read. Every so often though things seems to go off at a tangent, which left me wondering what 'that' was all about.

I can't decide whether L.C. Glazebrook's style of writing took me a while to get used to, or if the writing actually improved as I came into the second half of the story, and once I had finished the book I realised I was quite looking forward to reading more about Bone and Crystal.

Wasn't enthralled by this. It didn't really hold my attention, I was a bit bored throughout to be honest! But it's not bad, just not my taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky Good Fun 9 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Crystal is an eighteen-year-old witch, in training by her mother to keep the nasty things lurking in interdimensional portals contained. Bone is her best friend, who died 2 years before and insists on hanging around. Halloween is coming up, and there's a film maker in town with a stock pile of movies that are having a strange effect on the locals.

There's a lot to like about 'October Girls'. I thought the characters were brilliant and Nicholson's writing style keeps things fresh and entertaining. The plot was interesting too. There was an abundance of odd names - Crystal's boyfriend is called Pettigrew, the film maker's name is Dempsey - which I personally found mildly irritating, but there is actually a bit later on in the book that sort of pokes fun at this. I like books to have a good sense of humour, and a sense of fun, and this has both.

The only thing that really felt a little odd about this book was at times it read like something aimed at say thirteen-year-olds, while at other times it seemed more directed at older teens. This didn't effect my overall enjoyment and was only noticeable a couple of times. All in all I'd say this was a really entertaining, quirky & fun read. If you're into YA Fantasy I'd say give it a go, it's something a bit different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, witty and twisted 20 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the story enjoyable, the characters easy to fall in love with, especially Bone and Crystal and Momma is absolutely hilarious. Once I read the first page it had me gripped. Throughout the story Scott Nicholson never gives up on that banter and corpse/death humor between the girls. Fantastic storytelling and cant wait to read his other Novels!
