Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) by Lili St. Crow

This is the best Young Adult book I have read this summer.  It is one of the nominees for YALSA’s Teens Top Ten list for 2010 and is my favorite so far.

I know many readers will make the comparison between Strange Angels and Twilight.  There is a female protagonist and two men who both strive for her attention.  There are vampires and werewolves and other paranormal creatures.

The main difference to me is that Dru is not a victim like Bella constantly seems to be.  She and her father fight the evil creatures of “The Real World.”  If you are familiar with the television series Supernatural, you will definitely see the similarities.

I purchased this book for our school library in January.  Unfortunately, it was only checked out six times.  I will make it a point to promote this book next year.  I believe the students who enjoy the Vampire Academy and House of Night series will love this one.
