JENNY POX (THE PARANORMALS 1) JL Bryan
I was unsure about this book when I first started as I thought the language was more suitable for a YA market. However, the plot had me hooked within the first few pages so I mustered onwards and I'm so glad I did.
I usually prefer to read about fantasy worlds that don't exist but this one was set in our world. However, it still seemed new to me as it was set in a very American environment of a small back town. Living in the UK this was an eye opener for me. As I read through the story I could totally picture my surroundings so the author did a good job with the descriptive settings.
Loved the main 3 characters and the twist at the end was not expected at all. A bit of sex and bit of gore probably means it's not a YA story but these features were done just right and not just for the sake of it. I will be continuing to read about Jenny Pox if there is another tale to tell, she sort of grew on me, you know as a good character does.
