Prophecy Girl by Cecily White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not sure what's up with the negative reviews of this book - I really enjoyed it from start to finish. Who wouldn't be drawn into a book that has a title that brings back memories of Buffy with some other Academy books thrown in?
Amelie is a bit of a bumbling academy student who has a bad reputation. Her family's history with the academy leaves a lot to be desired and her participating in some permanent record worthy actions didn't really help either. She spends her evenings hunting (which is against the rules) and convinces her BFF to come along, too. Another year begins and it brings with it even more mayhem. And a hot new substitute teacher. And pressure to find her bondmate (a requirement to hunting successfully).
Jack, the hottie teacher, runs hot and cold with her. Mixed signals are his game and it is a little frustrating until we get to the heart of the matter. These two have some sizzle (possibly indicating more than frustration) but they also appear to be gigantic magnets for trouble. Said trouble gathers momentum until they are on the run from just about everyone, second guessing any real alliances, and trying to solve a string of murders in their community. There are tons of twists and turns that had me guessing until the end. This book was impossible to put down and now I want to dive right into the next!
