>Waiting on Wednesday (15)

Title: Misfit
Author: Jon Skovron
Publisher: Amulet
Release Date: August 2011

Jael Thompson has never really fit in. She’s changed schools too many times to count. The only family she’s ever known is her father, a bitter ex-priest who never lets her date and insists she attend the strictest Catholic school in Seattle. And her mother—well, she was a five thousand year old demon. That doesn’t exactly help.

But on her sixteenth birthday, her father gives her a present that brings about some unexpected changes. Some of the changes, like strange and wonderful powers and the cute skater boy with a knack for science, are awesome. But others, like the homicidal demon seeking revenge on her family? Not so much.

Steeped in mythology, this is an epic tale of a heroine who balances old world with new, science with magic, and the terrifying depths of the underworld with the ordinary halls of high school

    >Actually, the thing that intrigues me most about this book is that it appears to be written by a man, but it has a female protagonist. That's fairly unusual and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

    >ah, now that you've pointed it out, I guess that is kind of intriging. Hopefully it'll be as good as it sounds 🙂
