Yes, I can list my favorite Killer Schoolgirls, can’t you?

In the category of “Weird pitches I write to my editor at Unbound Worlds that somehow make it to see the light of day”: seventeen killer schoolgirls (or killer FORMER schoolgirls) guaranteed to liven up your TBR pile.

And I managed to fit one of my favorites, too:

In alternate-history Japan, the authoritarian government forces classes of middle school third-years (equivalent to U.S. freshmen in high school) to participate in a bloody fight to the death. This time around, one of the most deadly participants is Mitsuko, a popular and cold-hearted girl whose desire to survive outweighs just about every single one of her classmates. And, as readers find out, her first victim in the battle royale isn’t the first person she’s killed.

Check out the other 16 Murder Friends in my list over at Unbound Worlds!
