I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

New Girl

New Girl - Paige Harbison I'm not surprised I really liked this one. The description pulled me in and I knew I had to read it. I haven't read the book it was based on, so I have no point of reference for that part of the story, but I was pulled in and intrigued with the story and the characters.

What I didn't expect was to get a story from both girl's point of view. Normally, in a story like this, I prefer just the one point of view. But the way the author has written the story, it adds to the mystery instead of takes away, which I really loved. The more I read the more I really wanted to know what the heck was going on.

I liked the darkness. I don't find many YA books, that aren't dystopian, that seem to be on the dark side. It has a gothic feel that even the reader can get chills from. It wasn't over the top and it didn't feel like something that could never happen. Which makes for a very good story.

I'd suggest more mature YA audiences for this one, but it is definitely worth waiting for and picking up!
