Book Review: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)

Synopsis (from Goodreads):  Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.
But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.

My Thoughts:  I seriously loved this book!  It was funny, the characters were great and the plot is creative!  I've never read a book like this before and I enjoyed it immensely!

Evie is an orphan who never knew her parents.  She was found at the age of 3 and put into the foster system.  Then, at age 8, she was found by the APCA (American Paranormal Containment Agency) due to the fact that she could see through glamours.  Since then, she has worked for the now IPCA (I = International) to help contain paranormal creatures. 

Enter Lend, who is a creature that no one has ever seen before.  Of course, Evie is very interested in him because of this reason.  Oh yeah, it helps that he is hot too!  Lend can change shapes but is a watery, almost invisible substance. 

The IPCA is suddenly put on edge when paranormal creatures are being killed.  They must find out who is doing this and why.  Evie and Lend try to help but the IPCA wants no help from Lend.  Then, chaos breaks loose and Evie has to decide what to do.

Evie is an amazing character!  Strong, independent, stubborn and sarcastic.  I loved her sense of humor and how she would blatantly disobey Raquel just because she could.  Evie just wants to be normal and I loved how she really wanted to just go to high school and have a locker!

This book was a great paranormal romance with a lot of humor in it!  I loved everything from the titles of the chapters, to the first lines in the book to the suspenseful ending.  I absolutely cannot wait for Supernaturally (luckily I get to review it early via an ARC tour)!  Seriously, you have to read this book if you like YA paranormal!
