About the Book:
Emily Webb is a geek. And she’s happy that way. Content hiding under hoodies and curling up to watch old horror flicks, she’s never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for midnight parties. And she’s definitely not the kind of girl who starts fights or flirts with other girls’ boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that . . . the same night one of her classmates—also named Emily—is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn’t know why she’s doing any of this. By day, she’s the same old boring Emily, but by night, she turns into a thrill seeker. With every nightfall, Emily gets wilder until it’s no longer just her personality that changes. Her body can do things it never could before: Emily is now strong, fast, and utterly fearless. And soon Emily realizes that she’s not just coming out of her shell . . . there’s something much bigger going on. Is she bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely—something not human?
As Emily hunts for answers, she finds out that she’s not the only one this is happening to—some of her classmates are changing as well. Who is turning these teens into monsters—and how many people will they kill to get what they want?

My name's Jeff. By day I'm a young adult author. By night, I'm a pop culture fiend. Read more about me and my books--including brand new release Vesper: A Deviants Novel--at jeffsampsonbooks.com.

My Review:

Vesper is the first of a three book series called Deviants.  This is Jeff Sampson's first YA series and he doesn't disappoint! This book involves everything I love in a good book: paranormal,a quick read, and  a surprising plot, and wonderful geeky characters.

Below is some of the quotes I just loved.

Page 170- "you know how beer smells? sort of like cat pee by way of a ready, boozy stench? combine that with a terrible bitter taste that lingers on the tongue, and a warm frothy bubbliness like a can of cola that's been left open int he sun for three weeks, and you can imagine maybe a fraction of the nastiness."

Page 194- :Lesson for the day, kids: Hangovers are real, and they re the opposite of fun."

I loved both of those and they made me laugh for so long!  This book was amazing and I can't wait for the next installment coming Jan. 24th!

Well I had this book since it came out last year and I got through like 80 pages but for some reason I put it down. I just couldn't seem to get through it but I'm happy you enjoyed it and maybe I'll get back to it thanks for reminding me of it.
