The Girl Who Heard Demons by Janette Rallison
When she overhears supernatural voices celebrating the impending death of the school quarterback, Levi Anderson, she knows she has to do something to prevent it. However, the demons aren’t the ones plotting; they’re just celebrating the chaos, and Adelle must contend with earthly forces as well if she wants to preserve Levi’s life.
Handsome, popular Levi doesn't appreciate Adelle’s self-appointed role of guardian angel. As Adelle battles to keep him safe, she’ll have to protect her heart, too. Can she do both?
"The demons came again during the night."
First off, I love Janette Rallison's writing style and humor so I was excited this book won on kindlescout.
Second: I got this book because I nominated it and it won!
Third: Did I say I love Janette Rallison's writing? It's A Mall World After All had me laughing out loud.
I was a little worried about reading this book at night, but I didn't need to worry, other than I stayed up late reading because I wanted to know what happened next! Danger, demons, delicious romance all mixed in this book.
Adelle and Levi are the main characters and get their own chapters. Each have something they are struggling with and have to learn how to overcome it. I enjoyed reading their points of view and felt they added well to each others story and the overall plot. They were cute and funny and real to me.
There are bad, bad guys and they are evil. No punches are pulled in describing them and their deeds. Right from the beginning of the book I wondered what choices I've made now and in the past that might attract a nasty demon to hang out with me. It was an interesting takeaway.
While this is a young adult book, I think readers of upper reading levels would enjoy it.
