Book Giveaway: Misfit

Five copies of Misfit are up for grabs! Now available from Amulet Books, a fresh paranormal novel from author Jon Skovron. Here are some reviews and what other ya writers are saying:

"In an impeccably paced and unusually profound urban-fantasy novel, 16-year-old half-demon Catholic-school student Jael Thompson comes into her powers, explores her heritage and battles a tyrannical Hell beast."

— Kirkus Starred Review

“A diabolically delightful paranormal about a teen girl discovering her inner strength and power — and her potential for darkness.”

— Holly Black, author of bestselling Modern Tales of Faerie series and Curse Workers series.

“Misfit reminded me of the first time I read Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, a clever and twisty mix of old gods and new worlds. Jon Skovron’s protagonist, Jael, is the kind of heroine I can’t get enough of: strong, smart, loyal, and wickedly compelling.”

— Carrie Ryan, best-selling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead Tossed Waves

“A refreshingly interesting story, Jon Skovron’s tale of a half-demon girl trying to figure out her place on earth—or in hell—is deftly paced and beautifully told, instantly captivating and delightfully strange. I want more, please.”
— Kiersten White, bestselling author of Paranormalcy and Supernaturally
