Read full description of the books:
One thing that always appeals to me is a voice that I find sharp, funny, and insightful, and this book hit the target dead on for me.
The story: Jane Jarvis, who is short and feisty and a senior at a Catholic school, is worried that her best friend Allison (who is kind of wimpy as well as clueless) is going to get burned badly in a yearly event. Jane is so right …and so wrong.
Because Allison goes down for a more spectacular fall than anyone could have guessed—and yet returns from it stylish, with nifty things, and an attitude that surprises students as well as teachers. Jane wonders if it's too good to be true. She's warned by the school's single priest, Brother Frank, to watch out and be careful of her soul. She figures his words are just more adult preaching and goes on a hunt to figure out what happened to her best friend. Because Jane's smart, she can take care of herself.
Well, maybe she can, against her fellow human, but what about …demons? Oh, yeah, right, demons, ha ha ha. Ooops.
The story gets more tense and exciting as the pages turn, the characters interesting, the story fascinating because it manages to present the supernatural with hints of a greater structure to the universe without committing to any party line. Even more daring and incredibly innovative these days, Brother Frank is not a child molester! Wow! Even more amazing, the nuns are not stupid, venal, sex-starved witches. Stunning and radical new idea!
