Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.

Paranormalcy follows the story of teenage Evie, a pink-loving, ass-kicking, blonde girl that lives and works for the IPCA. One of a kind, Evie can see through any paranormal's glamours, which makes her an asset to the IPCA in the field. She bags and tags the paranormals, brings them in,
neuters neutralizes them, and continues to wish for a normal life - whatever that might be. When an unknown paranormal breaks into the IPCA after paranormals start dying off, Evie's IPCA life is thrown into a state of flux, but she's finding this new paranormal, the shape shifter everyone fears, makes her feel more normal than ever before.
If there is one book that had more than its fair share of hype surrounding its release this year, it's Paranormalcy. That usually makes me very wary because it's rare for me to find a book that lives up to the amount of hype surrounding it...but wow! Paranormalcy is a refreshing, fun, and action-filled adventure story with twists of the paranormal that defy the molds so many other books fit in today. Kiersten White has created a book with a lovable heroine that people can relate to because she's human, and her human personality gives us the heart of Paranormalcy
Now, I'm not even a fan of faeries, so why did I enjoy this book so much? Paranormalcy, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...Lend (marry me?), pink, Tasey, conceited vampires, online shopping, intense sarcasm, werewolves, attitude, Reth (bad is oh-so good), "bleeeeeeeeeep!" Ok, but seriously? Paranormalcy is written from Evie's POV, and it's clear, girly, and really fun to read. The characters are well-rounded, the paranormals play on their stereotypes in clever ways, and it's a totally original take on the supernatural elements. Basically, it is some of the most quality writing I've seen in a while.
I give Paranormalcy a very clear 5 out 5. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves YA, especially those who love paranormal...actually, I'd recommend this to just about everyone looking for a fun, fast-paced read.
