2009 book 242

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures
A not untypical YA novel about a boy who dreams of a girl and then meets her, only she and her family are under a curse. There's magic and whatnot, and it's all a compelling read, though I did find the end a bit abrupt (is there a sequel in the works?). I also was intrigued by the depiction of completely conformist small-town Southern life--one of the authors grew up in the south and wanted to portray that environment--I guess she didn't have a good time of it. B+.
