Four in the Morning by Christi Goddard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Goodreads Says: Kathleen Hayson thinks her biggest problem is her mother. The only runner up—her mouth. With a wit sharper than her mother's perfectly manicured nails, her clever remarks create more problems than they solve.
But it's not her clever remarks landing her knee-deep in trouble. This time, Josh Colby is to blame. Kathleen's former childhood friend has become the school's most stuck up jerk. Before, she'd have told him to piss off and write his own stupid letter to the town slut/minister's daughter. Now Kathleen's escalating problems at home force her to reevaluate how flexible her principles are. She agrees to write the controversial letter Josh has requested.
Enter Rigel, a smartass magical creature who invades her room one night, promising he has come to help. When a boy Kathleen hates turns up dead and her mother goes missing, the letter becomes a key piece of police evidence—implicating Kathleen. As she fights her way out of a web of lies, the trust she has in those closest to her shatters. In the end, she's pushed to a terrible choice: who lives, and who else dies.
WOW! Just WOW! What a freaking roller coaster ride. This is how I felt the entire time I read the book. Not because there were ups and downs but because that can only describe this book's fast pace and intensity.
This author's writing style is amazing. I wish I could be as quick witted as Kathleen is in this book. I had laugh out loud moments, O.M.G.! moments and what the hell moments. For the majority of the book it feels like a dark contemporary more than a paranormal/fantasy/mystical type of book. All I can say is don’t let that deter you because the ending is RIDUNKULOUS!
Please note there is content included in this book that should be for mature readers only. This is the mommy in me. :-)
