Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea – Genevieve Tucholke *

Do you believe that two teenagers Having Sex is quite likely worse than one of those teenagers committing Mass Murder? If so, this is the book for you.

Abstinence advocates and Twilight-fans, this book was written just for you.

(It was on the ‘free’ shelf at work, and the pretty cover sucked me in.)

At first, I thought this intentionally-florid YA paranormal romance might have something going for it, in a silly way. I liked the contemporary-gothic trappings, and I particularly liked the spooky abandoned train tunnel – just ’cause we had one of those when I was a teenager… but the further it progressed, the dumber it got.
