Read in September, 2010

** spoiler alert ** This book first turned me off with the phrase "goth punks" and the authors use of black leather jackets and tattoos to depict the bad guys (who were essentially demon possessed kids?). Apparently the author has something against people who like goth, leather, tattoos and hard rock, as these were things that helped the "new kid" find the "demonteens" in town. I assume if you feel the same way about "goth punks" and tattoos and leather jackets, or wearing black clothing as signs of "demonteens" then you might enjoy this book. I however, found it cliche, and over dramatized as well as stereotypical and insulting.
