2015 book 39

Camille DeAngelis' Bones and All
YES, folks, it's time for a new entry in the annals of the monsters of YA--teenage Maren is afflicted with a condition that occasionally turns her into a cannibalistic monster (it all started when she was a baby and ate her babysitter) (an author's note explains that she is meant to be a ghoul). Every time she accidentally eats someone, she and her mom have to flee the area, and her mom is over it (and super afraid of her own child), and leaves Maren behind. Now Maren has to go road tripping--maybe to find her absent father and get some answers? This book is very very darkly funny, and there's minimal romance, mainly b/c Maren only gets the uncontrollable urge to eat people who are really nice to her (mainly dudes trying to make out with her).  Turns out there is nothing I love more than a teenage girl eating dudes trying to get into her pants. Amazing. A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in March.
