MY SOUL TO STEAL
This is the kind of book that ups the ante in teen literature. The characters are true to life in a way not often captured by YA authors; Vincent writes dialogue as if she spends her days haunting the hallways of her local high school. The love triangle is fantastic — the plot weaving is subtle enough that the reader feels let in on a secret. Rather than blind heroism, which seems to have been the major motivation for action in past Soul Screamers novels, this plot is driven by more relatable impulses: love, friendship, jealousy.
