DEAD-SHOT
I'm blaming being sick for this being the most inarticulate review ever, so if you want to save yourself some time, just know that THIS IS AN AWESOME SERIES. Gushy gushy awesome. I love it. I smiled. I laughed. I cheered. I snorted. I "ohmygawd"ed. Rosemary Clement-Moore is awesome. Read this series.

Now onto the only slightly more articulate review:

After reading all three books in Rosemary Clement-Moore's Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil series (Prom Dates From Hell, Hell Week, and Highway To Hell), I found one huge problem: There aren't more of them.

I can't believe it took me so long to find this series, especially since I read and loved Texas Gothic last summer, especially since Prom Dates From Hell was actually Clement-Moore's debut novel released back in 2007. But I'm glad I did.

In extremely oversimplified words that in no way gives this series the justice it deserves, Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil is a fun and exciting series about Magdalena "Maggie" Quinn, teenage girl/reporter extraordinaire/semi-"psychic" and her battles against Evil (with a capital E). It's fast-paced, quirky, and full of characters that are smart beyond the ages on their driver's licenses. Really, these are best described as paranormal Nancy Drew books (and, as often as Maggie references Nancy during the book, I think she'd agree).

I won't give away anything in the series, but I will say that each of the books follows its own plot (there isn't that much of an underlying, "long-term" plot, but the main characters stay mostly the same). And I think if you like one, you'll probably like them all.

I could not put these freaking books down (which came in handy since I've been sick and up coughing half the night - might as well read while I'm hacking up a lung).

There's so much I that it's really hard to list it all, but here's just a few:

Maggie was awesome. She was mature, eloquent, charming in a sarcastic kind of way, and had that super-teenager vibe - like the female leads in teen movies like Easy A and Mean Girls. I not only loved her, I wanted to be her.

The characters were absolutely fantastic and written to a standard beyond stereotypical teenage babble. It seems a lot of YA authors try to "dumb down" their main characters to zOMG TEENS! - the ones where boys are the end all be all and plots are fueled by naivety and hormones. Rosemary-Clement takes a different approach - the main characters are intelligent and move the plot along through a series of witty exchanges and clever discoveries.

The way Clement-Moore tied in science to a paranormal plot was impressive and is so rarely done within this genre. I felt like I learned a few things by reading these books. Random Jeopardy trivia stuff, but still, I rarely get that even in adult books.

As for negatives, I really can't think of any (which prettymuch puts my reviewer cred on the line). Occasionally I went cross eyed during some of the more in-depth scientific explanations (more so in the second book because it dealt with math and math and I aren't even frenemies).

Oh, and the fact that there aren't any more of them. Seriously? These damn things could keep on going forever. But, given the last one was released in 2009, I'm guessing it's over. Bummer for me.

Maggie Quinn is an aspiring photojournalist, who stumbles upon an evil demon plot in her high school. She attempts to solve the mystery with the help of her awesome grandmother, a jock who's stepping outside his clique, and a very cute college student.

The plot isn't terribly original, but beyond that, there's a lot to like about this book. For starters, it's really funny, something that's lacking in most YA paranormal novels (the sturm und drang of tortured romance doesn't really lend itself to big laughs, I guess). Maggie isn't a passive heroine by any means. She's smart, funny, and strong, and she wants to solve this mystery and save her classmates. What she really doesn't want is to have to go to prom, but she may have to make that ultimate sacrifice to save her fellow students.

There's a potential romance, and it's a refreshing change from all the tortured YA romances out there right now. Maggie's love interest is perfectly human, and the romance feels rather normal (in a good way). Another departure from typical YA tropes is that Maggie has parents who are involved and interested in her life. (I understand that absentee parents are a convenient plot device to avoid any adult interference in a swoon-worthy romance, but it gets old sometimes). Maggie's grandmother is also a very cool character, and she's a big help with the investigation.

The plot and the heroine are definitely reminiscent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I can't fault anyone for wanting to pay homage to Joss Whedon. And even with these similarities, Prom Dates from Hell is a fast, funny, and extremely enjoyable read.

clever fun writing and same description for the heroine

I discovered this book a while ago perusing Google books and read the preview for it. When I got my Kindle a few months ago, I remembered this book and bought it. It is sarcastic (my particular brand of humor), smart, funny, and has a good plot line. While many books these days tend to have jumped on the vampire bandwagon, this book deals with the concept of "old" magic in a modern world, making it seem realistic. I am not in my teens anymore, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this book!

I'm not a book reviewer, but I know what I love--and this book fits that bill. The characters are so well-crafted that they jump off the page, the storyline is fresh and exciting. I read slowly to make sure I didn't miss any of the author's wry humor--and to make the book last and last. This is a wonderful read that will delight adults and teens alike.

Maggie Quinn is a smart, sassy heroine that should be the norm in YA literature. It's nice to see a girl kick this much ass!
