Katy Budget Books's Reviews > Misfit
by Jon Skovron (Goodreads Author)
One of my favorite things was the description of the souls. They are so imaginative. I liked how they were consistent in the way they were set up but each description differed depending on the person. Jael’s father’s soil is barren and rocky because of all his hardships, whereas Jael’s love interest is a carefree and bright soul, like his personality.
Misfit was dark and mysterious, but it’s kind of hard not to be when you’re writing about demons and Hell. Jon Skovron creates a world in which being half-demon at 16 is cool and will leave many teen girls wishing they could be half-demon, I’m sure. As most of us know, being a teenager is hard enough. Throw in a father who is an ex-priest, a mother who is a demon, all the demons in Hell wishing you were dead and high school; It’s practically impossible! Skovron creates a fabulous character who is unsure and awkward at times, but in the end is able to find the strength to look beyond her doubts and fears and become something greater. This is a book that every high school age girl should read. It helps the reader you see you don’t have to have the perfect clothes, the perfect friends, or the perfect family. Life never goes the way we plan, so we just have to hang on for the ride. If Jael can do it, anyone can!
