I love just about everything Maureen Johnson has written her characters are great and I love her stories. Her series tend to be quite different from each other but they are all good in their own right. Maureen Johnson is not only a great writer but she is also amazing on Twitter I highly recommend following her. ( )

Seriously after finishing with this book I listened to Prince's "I Would Die For You" and thought to myself this would be a great theme song for this book.

I have to say that when I started Devilish I didn't have a lot of hope that this would be a good read. Just because the young adult novels I have started in 2014 have been pretty hit or miss for me. This one was definitely a hit.

The main character is Jane who is anxious about her best friend Ally getting through her senior year at St Teresa's Preparatory School for Girls. Every senior is supposed to have a Freshman that bids to be the Senior girls little. Jane is pretty much over anything dealing with St. Teresa's, but Ally desperately wants to fit in and be part of things. After a school wide embarrassing incident starring Ally, Jane becomes even more worried for her friend. However, Ally suddenly transitions into the most beautiful, articulate girl at St. Theresa's. Jane is left wondering who or what is behind Ally's transformation.

I liked Jane's voice throughout this book. The snark was seriously strong in this girl. Also though she likes to play tough she really does love her mother, father, and sister Jane. And through the entire book her love for her best friend Ally comes through. Some characters needed to be fleshed out a bit more (like Jane's mother) but other than that I was fine with the dialogue and flow of the book.

Also I have to give Ms. Johnson kudos. For once I wasn't forced to plod through a book that has a girl stuck in the midst of a love triangle, or trying to fight to the death for something in a dystopian future where no world building has been established. This was a very funny wry look at teenage girls and specifically on how one teenage girl truly loved her friend and would do anything for her.

I went and looked and I don't see that Ms. Johnson followed up with a sequel to this book which is a shame. It would have been nice to have a series of books starring students at St. Theresa. She did leave things with a nice little setup to the future so you could see that future books starring characters from this book would be possible.

"It doesn't matter how old you are when you die, I'd been told.

When you die, that's the right time for you.
I'd also been told my life was a small price to pay.

I was glad to pay it for Allison." ( )

I read this book about a year ago, and have zero memory of anything except the cover. Zip. Nada. Either my brain is eroding (always a possibility) or the book just wasn't very interesting. Possibly both.

SO! I know i've been terrible about updating this summer, and for that, i apologise. I've been crazy busy lately, i start college in three weeks and this whole summer has been preparing for it and such.
Anyway, let's get this rolling, shall we?
Maureen Johnson, can i start with her? And talk about how it's my life goal to be like her when i grow up? (except my books will be fantasy books ;) If i turn out a fraction as awesome as her, then i'll be happy. Not only is she a nerdfighter, she's probably the most entertaining person on twitter ever, and her books are all FANTASTIC.
Including this one, of course, because the word 'all' tends to encompass... well... all works of a said person. Although i think there are a few i still haven't read yet (like her newest... =|)
Anyway though, as our friend Goodreads so lovely put, this is a book about exchangning your soul for what you want (a bit Faust-ish, eh? You all know how i feel about Faust When Ally exchanges her soul for popularity, things for poor Jane spirals out of control. Jane is one of my faaaavourite types of characters. The really short badass ones. (I think it's because my best friend is really short and badass... ) Jane is the type of girl who causes all sorts of trouble for the nuns that run the catholic school she goes to. (Nuns.... heh.. i love nuns.) Whereas Ally.... not so much. Ally has issues, you see, but they're not BAD issues, just issues that make her not popular, which she has a problem with. But, i guess i understand where she's coming from here, she did throw up on a girl in front of her entire school, that IS pretty bad.
You can see how this is all getting set up, am i right?
SO, insert demon making deals, soul steal, bets for kisses, fantastic parties, lots of catholic school drama, badass nuns (oh yeah. i put those two words in the same sentence) and the whole FREAKIN FORCES OF GOOD VS. EVIL.
*calms down* and you have this book.
