This was rather underwhelming.
I liked Jules and her family well enough. At the beginning they had a great, supportive dynamic. There were several secondary characters, yet no one really stood out.
Plot wise, it had a lot of promise. It started out intriguing and it was a quick read. Sadly, everyt...

I am not a "YA" reader, but this particular book was recommended to me since I love and eat up mystery novels. First off, all I can say is I loved "living" in this world and I wish the book hadn't ended, it was that good. As far as I'm concerned it surpassed whatever "Young Adult" as a 'genre' is...

The hidden world of devil worshippers it exposes is fascinating, but what is even more impressive is how spectacularly it captures adolescence. The lead character, Jules, makes some decisions which made me cringe, but mostly beca...

Fast-paced, funny, heartfelt and suspenseful! Immediately, I felt for Jules. Her family dynamic was relatable and once Mae comes into her life and starts wearing Jules' clothes and falling for her crush, I was locked in.
Who is Mae? That was the driving force of the novel and it kept the pages tur...

I wanted to give this book to my friend's teenage daughter for Halloween, as always I read them before I pass them along, right from the beginning it grabbed my attention & kept me reading. It's a fast paced story, which I enjoyed up until the last chapters, maybe it's the "Mom" in me, but I...
