Dead Gorgeous by Malorie Blackman

The month’s book of the month is Malorie’s edge of the seat thriller: Dead Gorgeous. Check out Malorie’s intro to the story…


Liam has learnt the hard way that loneliness can be as powerful an emotion as love, hate, anger or fear. Alone for far too long, Liam is desperate for company and prepared to consider anything to get it – even murder.

Nova has always lived in her sister Raye’s shadow. A move to a new area to run a hotel has made her feel even more isolated. Nova meets Liam and discovers his secret. But Nova has secrets of her own that she’s desperate to keep.

Will these two lonely people be able to help each other? Will Nova be able to stop Liam from committing an act that will see him damned for all time?


We asked Malorie to put together a playlist to sum up Dead Gorgeous.
