it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

This book was a delight on just about every level. It brilliantly satirized the supernatural romance genre AND the "high school musical" crowd with clever shrewdness and skewering one-liners, yet it never lost its heart or poignancy. The protagonist, Alley Rhodes is accessible and identifiable, and yet she has a strong character that refuses to be submerged into bland romantic impulses. Through her journey Alley explores different aspects of her own personality, much as any teen-ager does in the process of self-discovery, all without ever seeming contrived or superficial. While generally I hate remembering my own struggles as a teenage girl, this book brought me back and reminded me that the lessons I learned then, hard as they were at the time, helped shape me into the person I am today.
