Review "Paranormalcy" Kiersten White

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy #1)
Publication Date: August 31, 2010
Publisher: Harper Teen
Hardcover: 335 pgs

     "What the bleep"! I totally loved this book. Kiersten White created some really great characters in Paranormalcy. The setting of this novel takes place mostly in an agency known as the International Paranormal Containment Agency (IPCA). The main character Evie is your typical teenage girl who loves pink  and loves to show off her personalty with the way she dresses. Well as typical as she can be while living and working within the IPCA. Lend is a paranormal Evie meets. He is a teenager who has a unique ability. An ability that others within the IPCA have never seen before. There are several other characters such as Raquel Evies's guardian, Lish Evie's mermaid best-friend  plus a bunch of other paranormal's Evie meets throughout Paranormalcy. Besides the characters I really enjoyed reading how the story came together. 

     Evie was fun to read about and I enjoyed seeing this world through her eyes. Evie has grown up working for the IPCA. Where she deals with paranormal's on a daily basis. Some of which are super creepy. As the story unfolds we are able to see what Evie does as a member of the IPCA, why her talent is so extraordinary in a world full of paranormal's. As Evie goes about her life in the IPCA she meets Lend another paranormal who she instantly connects with. It may have something to do with the fact that he is pretty much the only other teenager she has ever got to spend any time with. Life for Evie inside the IPCA can be isolated and lonely. The more time she spends with lend the more Evie starts to question if she wants to stay working for the IPCA for the rest of her life. Evie soon learns things about herself that are hard for her to deal with but with the help of Lend she starts to come to terms with who she really is.

     I really liked this cover I thought that it portrayed Evie and all that she is, she really does love pink. And I thought it was really awesome that she was wearing a pink dress on the cover. I saw this cover and instantly wanted to know what this book was about.
