Oh my glob, y'all! This was so freakin' hot! It's about this town with like, urban legends about creepy girls with superpowers and junk and can light things on fire… with their minds!! And the main girl, Kate, is afraid she's going to light things on fire, too! And Kate's always thinking about deep things like incipient adulthood and like puberty and junk… WITH HER MIND!!!!! I was sooo scared, you guys! And there were lots of hot boys that like, want to make out with our sassy heroine but she won't give it to them because she ain't that type of gal. She's a modern woman and those sexy boys with washboard abs just weren't ready for her lumps.

But let's get matters straight: this wasn't just about hot, sexy boys who want to slump on her lumps. This was about girls and girl troubles and how hard it is to find a girl BFF! Kate's rilly good friends with hot chick Willow but then it turns out Willow is not a nice girl. She cares more about being popular and sexy than a good BFF who lends you toilet paper when you run out. She reminds me of my ex-friend Melissa, who tried to steal my boyfriend Chad - and this was right after she ate my chilli cheese fries?! What the lump, Melissa! I know you're reading this! I WANT MY CHEESE FRIES, MELISSA!

Marco Reading it right now. It has a Buffy vibe.
(Yeah I picture Willow as Willow Rosenberg. Totally guilty.)
I like it.
