New York : HarperTeen, 2010
||Evie swears she's a normal teen. Even
though she's been working for the IPCA (International
Paranormal Containment Agency) ever since she was found
wandering alone as child, and can see through the glamours
that paranormals use to hide their true forms. She has the
same ups and downs as regular teens. She's got problems
with her faery ex-boyfriend, loves her pink bedazzled
taser (she calls it tasey), is obsessed with a teenaged
soap opera and has a newfound fascination for the
incarcerated shape-shifter Lend. But Evie's normal life is
about to become much stranger...paranormals across the
world have begun turning up dead and their deaths seem
connected to a prophecy that might be about her.

I've always thought of myself as normal. Sure, I dated a fairy once. And my best friend is a mermaid. And I can see through paranormals' glamours. AND I work for the International Paranormal Containment Agency (The IPCA, you know?) ...
Okay. So much for normal.
It's just that I have normal feelings you know? Sure I use a taser to bag, tag, and collect renegade paranormals, but it's pink, and totally bedazzled (I call it Tasey). I like TV, and dating, (that new guy, Lend--the shapeshifter who broke into the IPCA? Soooo hot!)
It's just that it's gotten weird lately. Okay: More wierd. Paranormals are dying all over. Not my problem. right? Except, they found this prophecy, and it's about me.
So it all might be my fault.
And I've got to do something about it.
Normal is history.
