Description

Jael has always felt like a freak. She's never kissed a boy, she never knew her mom, and her dad's always been superstrict but that's probably because her mom was a demon, which makes Jael half demon and most definitely not a normal sophomore girl. On her sixteenth birthday, a mysterious present unlocks her family's dangerous history and Jael's untapped potential. What was merely an embarrassing secret before becomes a terrifying reality. Jael must learn to master her demon side in order to take on a vindictive Duke of Hell while also dealing with a twisted priest, best-friend drama, and a spacey blond skater boy who may have hidden depths.

Author Jon Skovron takes on the dark side of human nature with his signature funny, heartfelt prose.
Praise for "Misfit
"- An impeccably paced and unusually profound urban-fantasy novel. Thoughtful, scary and captivating. "Kirkus Reviews," starred review.
