STRANGE ANGELS

Age Range: 12 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

Dru Anderson may be 16, but she doesn’t live an ordinary teenage life. Her mom died when she was five, and she was raised by her wise woman Gran in the mountains—when she wasn’t hanging around with her warrior dad. Dru was taught the truth about the Real World, which is far different from the one most people see. She knew all about the things that go bump in the night—the wulfen, the nosferat, the poltergeists. So she was prepared when her dad was gruesomely murdered and turned into a zombie, and she didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. But now she’s on her own, except for her Goth friend Graves, who only wants to grow up to be a physics teacher. Now they are the ones being hunted, because someone doesn’t want Dru to grow up to be anything…much less a real threat. The book grabs readers by the throat, sets hearts beating loudly and never lets go. The first in a series, it will be all too hard to wait for the next. (Supernatural. 12 & up)
