Rosemary Clement-Moore s has somehow gone back in time and infiltrated my mind during my high school years. Maggie Quinn (Clement Moore's main character) is the kind of girl I would have wanted to be had she written these books about 10 to 15 years ago. She's sassy, she smart, and she has all the great one-liners you wish you would have thought to say.

If you like Buffy or just really smart-alecky gals who battle demons and evil cheerleaders, you need to read "Prom Dates From Hell" and then "Hell...more

After reading the first book, I didn't know if the series would get better but I was so wrong. The 2nd book got even better and I couldn't wait till the next page to see how things would turn out for Maggie.



Maggie Quinn returns as the sarcastic and witty takes-no-crap Nancy Drew for another mystery but this time it takes her to the unexpected.... Sorority Hell Week. Posing as the Phantom Rushee for a news story, she delves into the SAXi house not just for a fellow rushee friend but because the s...more

I actually really liked this book. It was full of cliches though. I love witty banter and sarcasm, which makes for great elemental writing in my opinion. I would also like to read a sequel...maybe my wish will come true. Hoping. Possibly. (well, crap. I just found out this book is actually the sequel to a first book. I'm usually very careful in not doing that, especially after I've made fun of some friends for making that mistake. HA! Now, I also discovered there is a third book. I'm totally exi...more

I am sure I'm not the first person to describe this book as "Veronica Mars meets Buffy", nor will I be the last. For a girl who has spent the summer obsessed with the Slayer, and who is more likely to pop in a V*Mars DVD than to ever tune into Jersey Shore, that combination won me over completely. Clement-Moore lands the snarky voice, awesome family dynamic and mystery of Veronica, with the cool underworld mystery of the Buff.

This book also hit seriously close to home. I'm a sorority girl, a Sig...more

In Clement-Moore's last book Maggie Quinn barely survived her senior prom from hell. Now she's a college freshman going through the motions of joining a sorority. You have to wonder why, since Maggie is not a sorority person. She's really doing an exposé about sorority recruitment, her first journalistic achievement as a college student. The college paper agrees to use her columns, printing them under Anonymous.

When she finds a sorority that welcomes her psychic abilities she's tempted to join....more

Hell Week is an excellent sequel to Prom Dates from Hell. Heroine Maggie Quinn has graduated high school and moved on to college. She's trying to navigate the social maze of college and explore her psychic abilities while keeping the world safe from evil.

Hoping to score a spot on the college newspaper, Maggie goes undercover for sorority rush. It's just for a series of articles at first, and she has no intention of actually pledging a sorority, but when she starts to believe there's something ve...more

When I got this from the library I didn’t realize that it was a part of an ongoing series, but that didn’t take away from the book itself. In fact, I think that since it was the second book, it was quite easy to catch on to what had happened in the first one. Plus, the subject matter was incredibly entertaining, so that added to it.

Speaking with knowledge of the inner-workings of sorority life, I really enjoyed this book and how well it captured how it is in a sorority house – minus the demons....more

While the main conflict of this installment does lift…well, everything from clichéd B movie plot (Sorority girls from Hell!), Clement-Moore still manages to make the second book in the Maggie Quinn series entertaining and funny.

To begin with, tangent: Quite obviously, the majority of YA books deal with the fact that high school is pretty much every single teenager/young adult’s life. What grinds my nerves, however, are the ones that treat high school as the end-all, be-all. Does high school suck...more

The Setting — is still Avalon, but now Maggie Quinn is in college. The setting is a a normal enough college conglomerate of locations and Maggie’s home.

The Characters — are composed of some returning faces, like Maggie, Lisa, Gran, and Justin, and the Sorority Girls. I’ll be honest, I got confused with a lot of the new characters. It was probably at the very end when I was finally getting oriented to who was who and which one was connected to that one and how. This isn’t surprising, because I of...more

Maggie wants to be a reporter for the college newspaper. When the professor turns her down because she's just a lowly freshman, she goes undercover for a behind-the-scenes look at sororities and Rush.

Soon, she's making friends and enemies among the other pledges and asking questions that could seem suspicious. When Maggie finally decides on one house, she comes to realize that there's more to the sisterhood than meets the eye.

Clement-Moore, R. (2008). Hell Week. New York: Delacorte Press.

327 pages.


Appetizer: Maggie Quinn is back. After surviving prom and the rest of her senior year of high school, she is now a freshman at the local college and trying to find a way to get her articles in the local and college papers.

Maggie is also uncertain of what's going on between her and Justin. He went off on an internship to Ireland for the summer and apparently he's been back in the country for a week, but hasn't called her. (...more

With her trademark wit and humor, Rosemary Clement-Moore delivers another crowd-pleaser in her Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil series, though I’m beginning to think the story may be falling into a rather predictable rut. The characters, especially Maggie and those closest to her, are lively, and don’t fall into stereotypical categories of “MC’s steadfast best friend, “MC’s perfect unrequited love,” “The Villain,” and so on. Maggie’s parents keep dry wit constantly on hand, and Justin, Maggie’s love...more

The sequel to Prom Dates From Hell. Previously, Maggie and her friends fought off a demon at her high school prom. I didn't read that book, and I'm not planning to go back and read it now. You, dear reader, should not bother to read this book, either.
Maggie is a freshman in college, and she's psychic. And she is writing an expose of what it's like to go through Sorority Rush. But her spidey senses tell her there's something worse than too much hairspray and lipgloss happening at one of the soro...more

Hell Week is the second title in Rosemary Clement-Moore's "Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil" series. In this outing, college freshman Maggie Quinn has gone undercover at Bedivere University and is publishing an anonymous expose for the University's newspaper on the ins and outs of rushing a sorority. Things are complicated somewhat by the fact that Mags has the Sight and the particular sorority reaching its tentacles toward her seems to be just a bit "off." Off--as in potentially capital-e Evil.

Maggie made it out of high school alive so what does she decide to take on next? Sororities! Maggie decides to go through Rush, undercover, in order to get her foot in the door at the college newspaper.

With the hectic schedule of a new college freshman, participating in Rush, and trying to figure out what is going on with her sort-of boyfriend Justin, Maggie is burning the candle at both ends. But it isn’t until she realizes that she is losing time that she starts to worry that something of an e...more

Rosemary Clement-Moore has brought back the spunky Maggie Quinn, supernatural girl detective. Maggie, a fabulous mish-mash of Buffy, Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars is the ultimate in sass and detective work. Hell Week takes readers through Maggie’s decision to investigate a suspicious sorority with a little help from her old pal Lisa and maybe-maybe-not love interest Justin. Clement-Moore keeps the pace moving with Maggie as she scrambles to unravel the society’s mystery before she’s forced to ple...more

Book #2 in the "Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil" series. Another gem. At the start of this volume, Maggie and Lisa are both in their first semesters of college...with a friendship that is strained thanks to both the long distance now separating them AND the fact that Lisa dabbles with magic freaks Maggie out (since the last "dabble" brought forth a demon). Justin is also still in the picture, having just returned from an internship in Ireland. So, Maggie is getting her life back in order...while opt...more

Honestly? I always knew that sorority girls had a compact with Satan. [Grin:] The second of the Maggie Quinn books delivers an excellent follow-up to Prom Dates, although, for the more intuitively sensitive reader, it has difficult moments to read comfortably. The evil spell that Maggie labours under reminds one of depression and the book is so well crafted that readers do get a clear sense of Maggie's suffering.

This is definitely a book for more mature teens and young adults with a healthy sen...more

Maggie is a freshman in college and wants to make her mark with the town or at least the school newspaper. To do this she decides to rush soroities and write a series of articles about the corrupt greek system. This is a great idea except instead of being completely rejected for the nerd she is, Maggie attracts the attention of the most powerful sorority on campus. What could they possibly see in her? Could it be her supernatural powers?? But that would mean they have powers. Sorority girls with...more

Maggie Quinn is back again in this sequel to “Prom Dates From Hell.” After she dreams of Greek letters she decides there must be some type of story for her on Greek Row. As Rush Week continues she goes deep undercover while writing articles for the school paper as the Phantom Pledge. When she pledges SAXI she wasn’t expecting what happens next. Her prophetic dreams have been replaced by a haze and members of the sorority aren’t making a lot of sense about certain things. When she tries to recall...more

Maggie wants to be a serious journalist, which gives her the ingenious idea to go undercover as a pledge to expose BU's Greek system for what it is: shallow, elitist, and cliche. While the sororities promote sisterhood and commitment, Maggie discovers that for the SAXis that means owning her soul.

Clement-Moore creates a plot that is full of twists and turns. If the reader expects a carbon copy of book one, they will be disappointed. Although Lisa and Justin return to help Maggie vanquish a demo...more

Honestly? Too many girls’ names and Greek letters thrown at the reader. I couldn’t keep track of all the frats, sors and students. The part of the book where Maggie is under the “muffle” spell (two thirds of the book) leaves the reader feeling just as confused. Also, my mind kept wandering to how my brother described frats, “Rent a friend.” Hehehe.

Loved the final confrontation – nice build up with the fractal patterns. Could have used more history.

I’m looking forward to her next book: “Highway t...more

This book is about two girls, one a witch in training and the other a psychic, who come across a small town in Texas and some strange beasts who are killing the livestock and are now threatening the humans. Could it be a chupacabra or something much more evil. This is the third book in the series Maggie Quinn: girl versus evil.

I enjoyed the book immensely at the beginning and quickly feel in love with the two main characters. They mysterious plot kept me wanting to read and I couldn't put the bo...more

A very nice follow-up to Prom Dates from Hell, although I did like the first one better. This books follows Maggie Quinn to her freshman year of college, where she is still touched by her gift to see beyond our world. She begins the book working as an undercover reporter, exposing the secret world of sorority pledging. As Maggie gets selected for the most exclusive house on campus, she gets entangled in a mysterious series of events that lead her to believe her new sisters are more than they app...more

This is the second book in Clement-Moore’s Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil series. It builds well from the first book and gives the reader a better view of Maggie’s world. Like the first book, it is told from Maggie’s point of view and is laced with pop culture references. Part of the book’s focus is on Maggie and Justin’s relationship which is both well written and charming. The two major plot points (the Sigmas and the relationship) are well integrated. Familiar faces from the first book also appe...more

I sped through this book immediately on the heels of Prom Dates from Hell, and enjoyed it just as much, if not more. Clement-Moore's fast-paced and amazingly original story, as well as the characters I now love, have me hooked. I appreciated that she stuck true to the outcome and carried through with the consequences of the events in Prom, namely the damage to Maggie and Lisa's relationship. Clement-Moore can write snappy dialogue, intense plots, and true-to-life relationships (with a huge dose...more

Maggie Quinn is back! And I still love her...this time, she takes on mystical sorority sisters in a place where she belongs, but not really. As always, Rosemary Clement-Moore oozes wit and intelligence through Maggie...I was thinking that "Hell Week" might be mostly like "Prom Dates", but it was different where it needed to be different, still possessing the elements I loved about the first book...I can't wait to read the third one! Talk about an engaging series...

Maggie Quinn has matured since the first book, and so has the writing of Clement-Moore. Maggie is a geeky and witty as the first book, but she's less of an outcast. There aren't many surprises in the novel, but it's full of buffy-style demon butt kicking. The sexual maturity has grown up a bit too. There's nothing too graphic, but the book does acknowledge its existence and that college kids do it, so may not be suitable for younger readers. If you're expecting high literature, look elsewhere.

Here’s a good example of straying from the norm. Vampires and werewolves (although I haven’t read anything on the latter) aren’t the only supernatural beings. There are demons. And magic. Yay! Think of a less scary version of the Demonata series. But with a charmingly witty girl protagonist, her TA knight in shining armor, a witchy (literally) best friend, a whole bunch of nasty glares from her sorority sisters, and alumnae’s with demon contracts. I loved it. Maggie Quinn is like another Veronic...more

This book is a super cute YA contemporary with a psychic journalism student who pledges a sorority in order to get a good story, and then has to deal with a giant Hellish mess.

There is friendship. There is schoolwork. There is a cute boy. There is a lame boy. There is a demon at work for the Sigma Alpha Xis.

Not only was this a fun read, but it had a fast-plot, great characterization, and reminded me of my ill-conceived weeks as a pledge.

I'm so excited to realize this is part of a series. I'm tot...more
