Hell Week by Rosemary Clement-Moore


Clement-Moore, Rosemary Hell Week, 327 p. Delacorte (Random), 2008. Maggie Quinn is deep in the throes of Rush Week at the same college that her father teaches at. She's writing an anonymous, scathing column about the quirks of college sororities for the college paper, getting rave reviews. So she can't stop now. As she gets deeper into the sorority crush, Hell Week, she realizes that something extra spooky is going on. Maggie has already stopped one demonic event during high school, what's another during her first semester of college? I haven't read the first title in the series, Prom Dates from Hell, but I had no problem following the storyline. Maggie is a whip-sharp protagonist with intelligence and the friends she needs to back her up. I was enchanted. It does use the word "hell" a lot, but it is referring to the place, not swearing. And of course, there are demons and spells. MS, HS - ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
