The sequel to paranormalcy (click to read review).
Evelyn (Evie) is finally living her dream; she’s going to a normal high school and has her own locker. The locker is great, but high school is not living up to the expectations set by her favorite tv show. To top it off, her boyfriend is away at college (total bummer). So Evie has gone from being “special” to being average. When she’s offered the chance to have her old job back bagging-and-tagging dangerous paranormals, she jumps at the chance. Unfortunately, it also means lying to her boyfriend, roommate, guardian, and having to hang out with highly unstable human named Jack. What’s a girl to do?
Evie is desperately trying to figure out who she is and how she fits into the world. Is she more than human, less than human, special, not special? When she finds out her origin, she realizes that knowing where she came from doesn’t really help her figure out how and where she fits into the world. Is she defined by her heritage? In the book, Evie eventually decides she is defined by her actions.
From a Christian worldview, we are defined by what we believe about God. If we believe in and trust Him, then our purpose and calling is to bring Him glory. This is not accomplished by what we do or don’t do, but how we follow Him.
A little more innuendo in this book and a lot more tongues (kissing). No sex, no profanity.
Self-esteem and honesty. Honestly, I’m tired of reading books where the protagonist feels like she needs to lie to everyone about everything. Can we get a more original plot devise, please? (Sorry, venting).
If you liked the first book, you’ll like this one as well. If you haven’t read paranormalcy yet, you need to start there.
