Sixteen-year-old Evie’s job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone–or something–starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she’s worked hard to help become productive members of society, she’s got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal.
Normal is so overrated
I received Paranormalcy as an Advanced reader copy from HarperTeen and quite literally did the happy dance then ran inside to take pictures of the awesome cover. The pages inside are just as exciting! Evie, the main bagger and tagger at the IPCA is the perfect balance of sass and spunk complete with a blinged out pink taser and knife. She is witty and smart, part secret agent by day and crushing teen by night. She longs to live everyday experiences like going to school and having a locker. But never fear, her best mermaid friend Lish can experience it vicariously with her via their soap opera Easton Heights. Because, who didn’t have a favorite teen show when they were growing up?!!
Kiersten White does a perfect job of writing teens in a light hearted, funny way and her writing is completely clean. She creates dreamy male characters that are both fighting for Evie in their own way. Lend, the quiet artist with a changing face who is smooth as water. Reth the fairy who wants to fill Evie with his warmth is evil yet tantalizing. Each paranormal has a personality you can relate to and understand, even though they are still figuring it all out themselves. It’s a rich menagerie of mythical creatures all thrown into one setting. You’ll find yourself laughing out loud.
Paranormalcy is a must read for all teens. Just the right mix of action, sarcasm and a sprinkle of romance. Read it when it hits the shelves in August… you’ll see why everyone is raving about the book being “bleeping” fabulous! 5 stars. I can’t wait for more!!
