Book Review: Dead Girls Can’t Tell Secrets by Chelsea Ichaso

ARC Read

Dead Girls Can’t Tell Secrets comes out on the 5th of April 2022. I was able to snag an e-arc through NetGalley. It’s not a very long book, at 204 pages, and will be published by Sourcebooks Fire.

This sort of YA thriller wasn’t my thing until I read A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson, but that series was so good I had to try other books like it!

Dead Girls Can’t Tell Secrets is not an extraordinary, magical, lyrical read that will change your life. But its a solid, light read for when your bored and don’t really want to watch a bad TV show.

Let me be clear; that’s not a bad thing. It’s a good book and a great way to spend an afternoon!

Its fast paced, easy to read, well edited, and the twists keep coming. They’re all young, and human, and have regrets and secrets. That being said, there are a few loose threads by the end of it, and I am fairly annoyed that there weren’t any consequences for a certain someone. However, I really liked that our main, Savannah, really grew as a person and became a much better one.


Piper’s fall was no accident. Did someone want her dead? It’s up to her sister to discover the truth in this shocking new thriller with an unreliable narrator, from the acclaimed author of Little Creeping Things.

Piper Sullivan was in a strange hiking accident last month and has been in a coma ever since. Her older sister, Savannah, can’t pretend to be optimistic about it; things look bad. Piper will likely never wake up, and Savannah will never get any answers about what exactly happened.

But then Savannah finds a note in Piper’s locker, inviting Piper to a meeting of their school’s wilderness club…at the very place and on the very day that she fell. Which means there was a chance that Piper wasn’t alone. Someone might’ve seen something. Worse, someone might’ve done something. But who would want to hurt the perfect Piper Sullivan…and why?

To discover the truth, Savannah joins the club on their weekend-long camping trip on the same mountain where her sister fell. But she better be careful; everyone in the club is a suspect, and everyone seems to be keeping secrets about that tragic day.

And Savannah? She’s been keeping secrets, too…
