Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the trailer for Katie Alender's new book, From Bad to Cursed, which is the second book in Hyperion's Bad Girls Don't Die series.
The trailer stars "Shake It Up" star Zendaya who said of reading the script for the trailer, "I got some chills! There's some weird things where the darkness gets into the girl, and I visualized it in my head."
The novels are supernatural thrillers that tell the story of Alexis Warren, a pink-haired, ghost-fighting high school girl – in the first book, her little sister Kasey is possessed by an evil spirit dwelling in their gothic haunted house, and in the second book, Kasey tries to fit in at school by joining "The Sunshine Club," a group of girls who gain beauty and popularity with the help of a seemingly harmless demon named Aralt. Confident she can solve her sister's ghosty problems again, Alexis joins up-and soon finds herself in way over her head.
So is Zendaya a fan of reading? "When we're off scenes and the other kids are going and we're not, I read. I think reading is a kind of a passage way to explore places you may not ever be able to see. And it's a way to step into others shoes for a little bit and experience new things."
Alender had a blast working with Zendaya on the trailer. "She's a complete pro. I was in awe. She just came in and got it immediately! Her performance really makes the trailer for me."
