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.
~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.
