Good, romantic—and a little weird—entertainment.

Synopsis

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.

There are some very deep thoughts churning beneath the surface of this first book, and I’m very curious to see where Ms. White intends to take the series.

All-in-all Paranormalcy is a flirty, fun and fast read. While Evie and Lend’s romance may lack drama, it’s sweeter than chocolate pie… which is plenty sweet enough!

If you don't like reading books that are thick don't read Paranormalcy, but if you're like me you will want to read this book that is 335 pages long.

It's the humor that makes this book so special and so different from most of the YA lit that's out there today.

Will they end up together or will Evie be forced to kill him for his soul? This book is action packed, but also very funny.
