So my friend and co-worker wrote this, so my giving four stars to it reeks of sucking-up-ism, or just-being-nice-ism, or I-had-to-do-it-or-else-it's-gonna-be-super-uncomfortable-around-the-watercooler-ism. But the book is actually really good! No, seriously. The best part to me is the depiction of the setting. Perhaps I am biased since it is where I live, but you don't find all that many books that even attempt to depict a modern day rural Southern town, much less do it in a way that isn't either just plain old insulting or else way, way too cutesy and cloying. I think she nailed it. The voice of the main character is also very well done. I am not even especially into supernatural teen fiction as a genre (just ask Tammy, I prefer my books in the governess/crumbling country house vein) but I still thought it was pretty awesome, so if there is any justice in the world, then all the hords of teens and grownups who can't get enough supernatural YA will try this one. Come on, try it.
