This paranormal or urban fantasy series has some interesting worldbuilding and I like the heroine's sense of self and maturity -- which usually makes up for the too-young-fir-me-high-school setting with some mean girls. This entry is edging toward my impatience with some high school stuff and turning a blind eye to what some boys get by with.
I feel this, though:
"From noon to four, we’d be selling tickets and serving popcorn at the Cinemark in the never-ending quest for gas money. Which we spent going to and from work. It was a vicious cycle."
