This is the worst of the trilogy by far. It's supernatural Mean Girls without the humor.

My favorite of these books, and my introduction to the genre of urban fantasy. The first 3 books of this series were Lackey trying to beat the reader over the head with Serious Social Problems. Here, it's teenage runaways.
