Book: Misfit by Jon Skovron
Release Date: August 2011
Genre: YA / Supernatural
Description: Jael Thompson has never really fit in. She’s changed schools too many times to count. The only family she’s ever known is her father, a bitter ex-priest who never lets her date and insists she attend the strictest Catholic school in Seattle. And her mother—well, she was a five thousand year old demon. That doesn’t exactly help.
But on her sixteenth birthday, her father gives her a present that brings about some unexpected changes. Some of the changes, like strange and wonderful powers and the cute skater boy with a knack for science, are awesome. But others, like the homicidal demon seeking revenge on her family? Not so much.
Steeped in mythology, this is an epic tale of a heroine who balances old world with new, science with magic, and the terrifying depths of the underworld with the ordinary halls of high school.
I am such a sucker for these young adult supernatural books. I just cannot seem to stop myself from reading, and loving, them. From the description it sounds like this one may be a bit funny - it sounds creepy as well, but with some humor thrown in. I can only hope so, I love my books, even the scary ones, to be funny!
