Misfit

Misfit 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.

    This is actually a first for me, I am writing a review about a book that I have not actually finished I wasn t expecting too much from Misfit, all I really wanted was a good, paranormal romance that would hopefully keep me, and anyone else entertained for a few days I horribly misjudged it unfortuanately Not to say that there wasn t good things in it, the back story about her Father and her Mother was pretty interesting, the skater boy love interest had potential to be very different and refr This is actually a first for me, I am writing a review about a book that I have not actually finished I wasn t expecting too much from Misfit, all I really wanted was a good, paranormal romance that would hopefully keep me, and anyone else entertained for a few days I horribly misjudged it unfortuanately Not to say that there wasn t good things in it, the back story about her Father and her Mother was pretty interesting, the skater boy love interest had potential to be very different and refreshing, and the over all concept wasn t bad at all But those few spots of light are drowned out by all the other junk that screams through this book I ll start with the swearing, it wasn t atrocious, but it definitely wasn t clean either I can usually d...
