Publication date: February 28th 2013
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis:
Best friends since kindergarten, Adam and Christy have always been the perpetual outsiders in their small town in Texas. The other kids call Adam gay and Christy a witch.

On both counts the bullies are right.

Their junior year in high school seems destined to be the same old same old until Christy decides to cast a love spell for Adam at the midnight hour. The next day an alluring and mysterious boy enrolls at school and sets hearts aflutter, including Adam’s. Meanwhile, Christy’s mad crush on the handsome football player Ian seems to be going nowhere fast and her witch puberty is making her life miserable.

When a great evil arrives in town that threatens everything they hold dear, the best friends realize that finding a boyfriend is the least of their worries. Soon Adam and Christy will have to battle a force of darkness that has killed in their town before, and will again.


Review:
I'm really shock by how good this book is. Most of the time, I don't really like single books; I prefer series to prolong the fun. However, I think the authors did quite well with this book. They managed to cover all grounds. Though, a bit of unanswered questions here and there but it's great for a single book to cover all grounds.

The really endearing thing about this book is that you are going to follow the friendship of Adam and Christy, not the relationship like in most books. Both of them are just so cute together. You could really see the bond between them that they don't just drop each other because of new friends or relationships. Other than that, I really love that Adam is gay because not much books does that. I think homosexual characters are cute and has more character in them. Also, it's pretty neat that the authors used that as part of the main story line, like the bullying, problems, etc. that gays are experiencing.

The problem that I have with this book is the short time for Christy to be witchy. I want more witch moments. However, other than that I think this book is pretty great. I'm so envious with both of their parents because they are just so adorable. -^.^-

This is something great if you want to do some short reading.
