I got this book months early to review and just the other day I realized that IT COMES OUT TODAY (or if we're talking about the day I realized it it was more like IT COME OUT IN 5 DAYS!!!) which is why I read this book, well, that and because, let's face it, the cover is awesome and the story sounds great.  I have to admit the first few pages didn't capture me as much as I hoped they would, but I read on like a good little reviewer does, and finally I got to the part that really caught my attention. Possess was lots of fun with a great creepy factor that, while didn't give me nightmares did cause me to shiver a few times.  I really loved Bridget because she really was the kind of main female character that the YA world needs more of. She was a tough sarcastic bada** that, although did a little of the "poor me" stuff she really came through in the end.  If you're looking for a good spooky book I would highly recommend this debut novel.  McNeil comes up with an idea all her own and although for me the way of writing was a little hard for me to get used to in the end it turned out to be a good story.  I also applaud the fact that McNeil managed to keep me guessing the entire time on what was going to happen next, and then because she is a girl (and I am a girl) there was that great romance going on in between all of the freaky stuff going on in the characters life.  A great debut novel I highly recommend you pick this book if it sparked your interest at all, or maybe if you just like the idea of a teenage girl kicking some demon a**?  A great thriller debut and I can't wait for Gretchen's next novel, which sounds like it will be a slasher book! (wait, do they have those, slasher books, or is it just slasher flicks?)
