Haha, I got to read an ARC. -dances- Oh, wait. WAIT. I'm sorry I taunted you! I won't do it again!
...-sticks out tongue-...
Okay, now I'm done.)
Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.
But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.
Let's talk about how cute this book is.
For one thing, Evie carries a PINK TASER, And she likes awesome, pretty boots. She's kick butt and spectacular, and quite honestly, if she were real, I'd be following her around and be like Please Let Me Be Your Friend.
The book is sassy and funny. It made me laugh and it made me sad and it made me grin because the television show that Evie watches eerily resembles Gossip Girl at times.
There is a seriously great romance; it didn't seem at all forced or faked. It grew, and that is missing from SO many YA books lately. You actually like the guy (why yes, I am avoiding his name on purpose) and root for him and Evie.
PLUS, instead of cursing, they say Bleep. You'll have to read it to figure out why.
There's a creepy fairy. A mystery. A bad character that your heart aches for. A cute boy. A best friend that you love. A mother-ish figure that you alternatively want to glare at and then hug. It's hilarious. It's sweet and sad. The first book of a series that actually stands on its own and has a full story arc (so basically, it avoids my pet peeve in trilogies) and, well, basically it has a pretty boy. That would enough for me. But the book totally goes beyond that.
My bleep, this book was so cute.
(So is the author, by the by. One of the cutest.)
(You should also go pre-order it.)
(But please don't hate me for telling you to go spend your money. Promise, it's worth it. Just check the first few tweets.)
Go read! (Otherwise I might taunt you again.)
