After too-smart-for-her-own-good Jane’s best friend Allison humiliates herself at their all-girl school’s Big-Little event, the Allison Jane knows disappears. All of a sudden Allison has cute clothes, a new hairstyle, and a trendy cell phone. She’s also hanging out with a new sophomore, Lanalee. With their friendship teetering, Jane finds out, with the help of a freshman boy, that Allison has sold her soul to the devil, who is masquerading as a—you guessed it—sophomore at Saint Teresa’s.

Now, Jane’s not one to believe in ridiculous things like devils. She jokingly enters into a contract with Lanalee to get Allison’s soul back. However, strange things begin to happen: her history book bursts into flames, and her freshman friend, Owen, kills himself…and lives. Jane is forced to realize that her soul is in danger. And now the only way she can reclaim it is if she gets a kiss from her ex-boyfriend, Elton, by midnight at the very mysterious Poodle Prom.

DEVILISH is fast-paced and slight out there at times, but I loved reading it. Jane, with her wit and semi-acerbic commentary on everything, makes for a wonderful protagonist. I found myself laughing out loud many times. Anyone who has enjoyed Maureen Johnson’s previous books or anyone who loves a fast and wacky read will not regret reading DEVILISH.
