Paranormalcy By Kiersten White

ParanormalcyParanormalcy
From Goodreads.com Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, 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 still. Normal.
Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. 
 

My first thoughts on this book was that it sounded like Men in Black, but with a teenage girl as the "man" (and sans suit). I found myself giggling through most of it. It was a very light read with great action and even a little romance. The main character is actually somewhat superficial through most of the book. Not caring about anything much except boys, tv show and wanting to go to high school. Her background gets more interesting as the story goes on. She has a mysterious childhood and an even questionable future. I do not regret picking it up and thought it was a very interesting story. (If you can get past the main character's kind of spoiled-like way of talking). Which did take some getting used to. I think it should be aimed at a 14-16 years old range of girls. I think that anybody older may have some time really getting into this story.
        Audiobook: I did take some time to review the audio as well. But be warned with this one. The narrator kind of sounds like a valley girl. The voice tones make the main character sound a little more obnoxious that if you were just reading the book yourself. If you enjoy audiobooks, take a second to listen to the minute preview at Audible.com.
