Book Review: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Check it out here!
Description: Evie's always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she's falling for a shape-shifter, and she's the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours. But Evie's about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. So much for normal.

Review: Your typical YA paranormal love story? Nope, not here. This book was campy, dark, and had a great mystery plot!

 Evie is your typical sixteen-year old girl - she loves pink, tv dramas, pop culture, and her best friend (who just happens to be a mermaid). Except, oh, yeah, she can see through paranormals' disguises and she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. Evie is hysterical as a narrator and so easy to like and root for.  She's very real, she acts her age instead of years older, she actually runs away from danger instead of headlong into it, which is a refreshing break from some of the author paranormal books out there. She's sincere and very funny. I loved her.

Evie finds herself at the center of a dark plot to destroy all paranormals. She has to face down her stalker ex-boyfriend, stand up to the only family she's ever had, and figure out who she really is all while racing against the clock to save her own life. Despite the dark nature, this book is funny and light hearted, never taking itself very seriously. It's a great take on the paranormal world and will definitely satisfy any paranormal lover out there.
