Bedeviled by Shani Petroff
A thirteen year old girl discovers her absent father is the devil. All kinds of craziness ensues.
Why I'm excited:
Lara is another 2009 Debutante. I loved the quirky attitude in this book--lots of humor, so many unexpected situations, and really great characters. It's so cute you want to pinch it's cheeks! Tweens are going to love this book when it comes out in October. My daughter is still mad at me for not letting her read it now.
So it was a slow week for my bookshelf, giving me a chance to make progress on my rather tall to-read stack. But--I discovered an unused B&N gift certificate (from my birthday last December) in my bedside table drawer. How could I forget about something so important? Tricks (Ellen Hopkins) and Ash (Malinda Lo), here I come!
