Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow - OPTIONAL

St. Crow, Lili Strange Angels, 293 p. Razorbill (Penguin), 2009. $9.99.

Language: R (200 + swears, 12 “f”); Violence: PG-13.

Dru’s dad didn’t return home last night, but tonight he’s back – as a zombie whose mission it is to kill Dru. Dru used to use her powers to help her dad fight creatures of the night, or The Real World, as they call it. Now, however, she needs to use those powers to find out who did this to her dad and why – all while keeping herself and her unwanted guest out of the clutches of various monsters.

St. Crow’s book is action-packed and dangers continues to the very last page. This is a definite plus to the latest trend of dark fiction for teens, but the large amount of swears will keep it out of most schools.
