Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
OK, this book started off strong and about three chapters in, I started to wonder why I was reading this because it was just sounding so strange. I've never read a novel where supernatural beings are widely known among the general public, where they're widely studied by university professors, or where students can elect to study them as majors in college.
The concept of this book is pretty original and the more you read into it, after getting through part of the strangeness, the book starts to take shape as a pretty good story that you want to know more about.
Kail, our main character is of course, a silly teenager that thinks she knows everything and dives into trying to save Zev, a man she now has a psychic connection with because she's carrying a supernatural parasite, without considering that what she is doing, may actually be a trap.
For me, the book became pretty emotionally charged towards the end. It turned out to be quite sad and when you consider someone like Kali, never really having friends and always feeling abandoned because of personal life issues that are revealed within the chapters, it hits even harder.
This is a good book especially if you're looking for something original that hasn't been done before this is a must read.
