“Devilish” by Maureen Johnson

14 Sep

TEEN LIBRARIAN'S REVIEW:

If you read Johnson's "13 Little Blue Envelopes," you'll find this book to be a bit different. Instead of clues, art, and a trip through Europe, this one has demons!

In "Devilish," Johnson tells the story of St. Teresa's senior Jane Jarvis, a smart, sarcastic girl with blonde spiky hair and a best friend (Allison Concord) who always seems to end up as the school laughingstock. Ally's senior year gets off to a horrible start when she throws up on a freshman during St. Teresa's "Big-Little" day, a ceremony where each freshman and transfer student selects a senior to be her mentor. Despite this incident, a beautiful, rich sophomore transfer named Lanalee Tremone seeks Ally out as her Big. Quickly, shy, mousy Ally is transformed — new hair, new clothes, new confident attitude, and a new relationship with Jane's ex-boyfriend, Elton. But something about Ally seems off to Jane. Do the changes in Ally have anything to do with a mysterious freshman at St. Sebastian's, the neighboring boys school, who helps Jane during a freak hail storm and then doesn't seem to want to leave her alone? And is Lanalee just a teenage girl who likes red cupcakes … or could she actually be evil?

A quick, fun read that has it all — friendship, romance, high school cliques, and even demon fighting!

      Maureen is a great author, but she’s also a really cool person, too! She has a book coming out in June called “Girl at Sea,” which looks like it’ll be great. You can find out more about Maureen’s books — and read her very entertaining blog — by going to her website.

      Thanks for your comment!
