Another good story! Yay! It was captivating, an alluring read that kept me on my toes. But damn am I frustrated that I still don't know what the hell Kylie is. I suppose that adds to the need of continuously reading on.

So Kylie still doesn't know what the hell she is, and the ghosts are not helping keeping her sanity. Not to mention she's a freak and on top of all that she has boy troubles. Derek or Lucas? Derek or Lucas? Choose Lucas! I don't really know a whole lot about him, but he's a werewolf and he's hot, so what's not to like?

Oh, and aren't the changes just lovely. Jeez, most girls would not complain about upping their boob sizes and getting some cool super abilities. Kylie does complain, and while it's a little freaky it's also kind of cool.

I still don't really like Kylie, I still do love Della and Miranda and Perry is pretty awesome too. I think that overall this isn't a bad book. I would have done some things differently, like get to know the characters a bit more and not have freaky vampire boy and his grandpa just pop out of nowhere and disappear so fast. It was sort of an irrelevant part of the story.

On to the next one!

Step into the world of Shadow Falls, a camp that helps teens tap into their special…talents. Once you visit, you’ll never forget it—and you’ll never, ever be the same.

From the moment Kylie Galen arrived at Shadow Falls Camp, she’s had one burning question: What am I? Surrounded by vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fairies and witches, Kylie longs to figure out her own supernatural identity…and what her burgeoning powers mean. And now she’ll need them more than ever, because she’s being haunted by a new spirit who insists that someone Kylie knows—and loves—will die before the end of the summer. If only she only knew who she was supposed to save. And how…

But giving Kylie the most trouble is her aching heart. Gorgeous werewolf Lucas left camp with another girl, but he’s still visiting Kylie in her dreams. And Derek, a sexy half Fae who’s always been there for her when she needed him, is pushing to get more serious—and growing impatient, especially when Lucas returns. Kylie knows she needs to decide between the boys, and it’s tearing her up inside.

Yet romance will have to wait, because something from the dark side of the supernatural world is hiding in Shadow Falls. It’s about to threaten everything she holds dear…and bring her closer to her destiny.

I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have. So thanks, but no thanks.
