Review: Poison Ink by Christopher Golden

SAMMI, TQ, CARYN, Letty, and Katsuko are floaters. None of them fits in with any particular group at Covington High School—except each other. One night, to cement their bond, the girls decide to get matching, unique tattoos. But when Sammi backs out at the last minute, everything changes. Faster than you can say “airbrush,” Sammi is an outcast, and soon, her friends are behaving like total strangers. When they attack Sammi for trying to break up a brawl, Sammi spies something horrible on her friends’ backs: the original tattoo has grown tendrils, snaking and curling over the girls’ entire bodies. What has that creepy tattoo artist done to her friends? And what—if anything—can Sammi do to get them back? This deliciously creepy psychological thriller is the perfect summer read.

This was one Hot & Chaotic read. If you like Voo-doo & Hoo-doo & all that magic stuff, then this is the book you would enjoy reading. It pulls you right into this mysterious and violent world and makes your head spin. The author has this colorfully descriptive way of writing. I blazed right through this book in a few short hours. The storyline is well thought out with all it's twists and turns. You never know where you'll end up. The main character could be any teen in any town, she is very easy to identify with. She has a stubborn will that in the end saves her friends from certain destruction. This book is easy to read and comprehend. A GOOD BOOK.
