Misfit by Jon Skovron Review

"Jael Thompson has never really fit in. She’s changed schools too many times to count. The only family she’s ever known is her father, a bitter ex-priest who never lets her date and insists she attend the strictest Catholic school in Seattle. And her mother—well, she was a five thousand year old demon. That doesn’t exactly help. 

But on her sixteenth birthday, her father gives her a present that brings about some unexpected changes. Some of the changes, like strange and wonderful powers and the cute skater boy with a knack for science, are awesome. But others, like the homicidal demon seeking revenge on her family? Not so much. 

Steeped in mythology, this is an epic tale of a heroine who balances old world with new, science with magic, and the terrifying depths of the underworld with the ordinary halls of high school."
This will be a very short review.

Misfit is easy to understand. It was awesome and has some crazzy characters. I would recommend it to my best friends. Misfit is a book that is nice to take a break with. With every twist and turns, readers would keep on guessing. Every little clue gives a scandalous point to the truth.

The plot was smooth. It was easy to understand. I felt that Misfit was marvelous. Jon Skovron has done a good just writing the plot and storyline. The twist and turns were interesting and will keep readers engaged in the book's unfolding.

The only POVs in the book are Jael and her father, Paul. I like Jael's POV better than her father's POV. Paul's story is a little bit better than Jael's though.

The ending... What!?! She had her big fight and then the author had to reveal that she will need to fight some more because of other demon lords out there. O.O


Jael... She has a choice to make. To fight or flee. Will the pressure of people around her convince her to fight or flee? Jael's story is more interesting and active than Paul's.

Paul... Wow, he's really interesting.

Rating: Four out of Five
