Prom Dates from Hell

Prom Dates from Hell is the first book in a wonderful series titled–Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil written by Rosemary Clement-Moore.  Maggie is a smart, witty, psychic teenager on the fringes of her high school’s social scene.  A clique of popular seniors are falling prey to their darkest fears and Maggie may be the only person who can  help them, whether she wants to or not.


I could not put this book down and had to finish it in one sitting.  Maggie is awesome!  I haven’t adored a demon-fighting teenager this much since Buffy!  Like Buffy, Maggie is snarky, loyal and tough, BUT she has to fight evil without the benefit of Buffy’s super-strength or popularity.

I am dying to read the next two Maggie Quinn books:


Hell Week where Maggie tries to infiltrate an evil sorority and Highway to Hell which tells the story of a road trip that takes a turn for the worse when Maggie and her friend Lisa get stranded in a creepy town in Texas.

If you’re looking for a fun, fast, slightly scary read you won’t be disappointed with one of Maggie’s adventures.

batgirl2~Tricia is the CPL teen services librarian and has started (re)watching her Buffy DVDs after being inspired by the evil-fighting prowess of Maggie Quinn.
