[ARC Review] - Born At Midnight

Title: Born At Midnight
Author: C.C. Hunter
Series: Shadow Falls
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: March 29, 2011

I received this book for review from St. Martin's Griffin through Library Thing.

Summary:  Kylie Galen has had a lot of crap tossed in her lap lately. Her parents are getting a divorce for who the heck knows why. Her boyfriend broke up with her because she wouldn't put out. And her grandmother died because . . . well, older people do that. But now, Kylie's acquired a stalker and she hasn't a clue what he wants or how to get rid of him . . . and she really wants to get rid of him because apparently she's the only one who sees him. Thinking she may be losing it, her parents send her off to see a psychologist who gets Kylie sent to Shadow Falls Camp. Kylie and her parents think it's a camp for troubled teens.

They thought wrong.

Kylie's surrounded by vampires, werewolves, fairies, witches and shape-shifters. And if she believes what they tell her, she's one of them. They're just not sure exactly how she fits in. As Kylie struggles to cope with the realization that these creatures even exist, and the fact that she might not be human, she's got two hot guys, a werewolf and a half-fairy vying for her attention. And they can just keep vying. Kylie's determined that before she lets her heart loose on love, she needs to unearth the truth. What does the ghost want? Who can and can't she trust? And most of all . . . What is she?

Thoughts: Kylie Galen is about to leave normal far behind. Her parents have sent her to a camp for troubled teens. But what she finds at Shadow Falls Camp is more than the average teen problems. Kylie enters a world of witches, vampires, werewolves and other paranormal creatures she never thought existed.

Born At Midnight is a fantastic and addicting read. Very much a page turner. This story takes a normal girl (or so she thinks) and throws her in the paranormal end of the pool without warning.  Kylie is a great heroine, I liked her right away.  She walks into camp lost and confused but ultimately finds a home, a place she belongs. Kylie is in a little bit a triangle with Derek and Lucas, I'm eager to see where this will go.  I definitely recommend this one.

Score: 5 Stars
