From Goodreads:

Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams,  Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.”  Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either.  Or does she?  They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. 

 As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas.  Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.  Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart. 

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

Opinion:

The blurb does not do this book justice. This is a book about family, friends, facing your fears, and accepting yourself.

When we meet Kylie she is going through a ton of problems that fell onto her in a short amount of time. Her boyfriend breaks up with her because she won’t put out, her grandmother dies, and then her parents announce that they are getting a divorce and the father that she so loves is moving out. Not to mention the fact that she has to see a shrink after seeing things that her mother can’t and having nightmares that wake up the entire house to her screams.
The real action begins when she is sent to camp. There is no shortage of supernaturals at this camp.

Kylie is the peacemaker of her group, which consists of a vampire and witch. This book is not about romance it’s about friendship and it’s something I find lacking in YA. Kylie is devoted to her friends and her friends to her. Holiday the camp advisor is also one of her close friends as she is the only one that is like Kylie. The only annoying thing about this book is the fact that we don’t find out what Kylie is, but I’m assuming we will soon.

I could go on and on about this book as it is simply one of my favorite reads. I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

  3.  I'm reading this at the moment and I'm finding it hard to connect to Kylie, but I'm glad you enjoyed it!

  4. If you are before she gets off the bus I wholeheartedly agree. She seems a bit poor poor me and then she gets to camp!
