Evie is a normal teen who just wants a normal life. She’d give anything if she could just learn to drive, go to school, have a locker, and maybe even get asked to prom. But her life is far from normal. She lives in and works for the the International Paranormal Containment Agency (IPCA), her best friend is a mermaid, and she’s got the special ability to see through paranormals’ glamours. So maybe she isn’t quite as normal as she thinks she is.

Now someone is mysteriously killing the paranormals, and Evie begins to wonder if there is a link between her special abilities and the deaths. When her new boyfriend, a shape-shifter, is threatened, she does the one thing she can to try to save both him and her– escape the IPCA and try to be the normal girl she always wanted to be– without being caught and killed. Will her life every be normal again?

I loved this book. White writes with a humor and sarcasm that makes the paranormal something delightful. Just enough paranormal activity to interest your vampire fans, with a little romance sprinkled in for good measure. This book will resonate with teens who wonder what it means to be “normal.”

The first in a trilogy, book two (entitled Supernaturally),is scheduled to be released in August 2011.
