Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
2012, HarperTeen

Synopsis: What if there were teens whose lives depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.

Tenderhearted Southern girl, Anna Whitt, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip to meet her father forces Anna to face the reality that hope and love are not options for her kind. When she confronts her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

Why read: Received for review

What impressed me: Everything about Sweet Evil impressed me. I'm not usually a huge fan of fallen angel stories, but this book hit all the right notes. Anna comes to discover all that she is at a good pace, with just the right amount of shock and curiosity. There is a very interesting love aspect, as well as hugely interesting family dynamics going on. There was some road trip time that usually doesn't work for me, but it played out very nicely here. I loved Anna, as well as the other teens like her, the way they interacted with each other and their own family relations. I can't wait to read the rest of this trilogy.

What disappointed me: Not a single thing.

Recommended: Most definitely. A wonderful twist on the good vs. evil story.
