November 2011 New Gen Book of the Month.

Supernatural shenanigans continue in this fast paced, smart-assed teen read. Banshees, Demon Soul Stealers make for an interesting final year at school for Kaylee and her sort of ex boyfriend Nash. Just think Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Twilight.

Synopsis

My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

SOMETIMES DREAMS DO COME TRUE...AND THAT'S THE LAST THING KAYLEE NEEDS Working things out with Nash - her maybe boyfriend - is hard for Kaylee. She's already coping with being a teenage banshee. Worse, Nash's gorgeous ex-girlfriend just transferred to their school. Sabine's no ordinary girl. She's a mara, a real-life walking nightmare. Draining people's energy through their darkest dreams sustains Sabine...and makes her Kaylee's top suspect in a cluster of super-creepy deaths. To win back Nash, Kaylee's determined to unearth the truth. But Sabine knows the deathly secrets of Kaylee's subconscious - and she's not afraid to use them to get whatever and whoever she wants...

About the Author

Rachel Vincent

Rachel Vincent learned to read at four years old, and wrote her first story at six. It was about a class field trip to the zoo. In addition to being her first experiment with the written word, it was also the first and only tale she illustrated herself--it turns out that her talents do not extend to the visual arts.

Since sixth grade, her reading interests have centred around the dark side of literature. In junior high, much to her teacher's distress, she wrote her very first book report about Carrie, by Stephen King. She devoured books about magic, vampires, and werewolves by the dozens. Monsters held a special fascination for her, be they human or beast. And eventually "I love these books" became "I think I can write these books," and she began creating fictional worlds of her own.

Rachel dabbled with short stories all the way through junior high, high school, and college, but didn't begin writing seriously until several years later, when she started her first novel. By the time she had completed four manuscripts, she knew she had found what she wanted to do with her life.
