2011 book 34

Kiersten White's Paranormalcy
This book was being hyped pretty heavily a few months ago, but it seemed like just another YA fantasy romance kind of book. I'm not sure why I decided to give it a chance, besides the good reviews on Amazon. Anyway, it's about Evie, who works as a monster-hunter for an agency that captures and neutralizes things like vampires and werewolves--Evie has the ability to see through their disguises to the creature beneath. But when a mysterious boy breaks into their headquarters, and something starts killing paranormal creatures, all sorts of secrets come out. And there are, of course, adventures. Evie is a surprisingly likable and sympathetic character--she, of course, longs to be a normal teenager like the ones on her favorite tv show. Apparently this is the first of a trilogy, and I look forward to the sequels. A-.
