Xoe by Sara C. Roethle

Xoe thought her life was normal. She believed her best friends Lucy and Allison were both human. That all changed when a new kid named Dan comes to their school. Lucy and Allison thought he was just a pretty face but Xoe had her suspicions. Everything changed one night after Lucy was scratched by Dan and the next thing they knew "normal" was no longer in their vocabulary. Before they could even grasp the situation Lucy was a werewolf, Dan was a werewolf and there was a vampire in town. Jason, the vampire, was sent to help protect everyone from Dan and together realize that nothing was ever normal. Especially when Xoe finds out that she isn't human.

Xoe was one of those books that you think is just another werewolf/vampire book. That observation changes as soon as you begin reading. This book has everything I look for in a novel: action, adventure, fantasy and romance. I would reccommend this book to anyone who likes a good fantasy novel and anyone who likes the Twilight Saga. Xoe is one of those characters that you remember and want to see her in a happy ending. I love how the author makes Xoe vulnerable yet strong. I loved this book and I am happy to be able to add this book to my bookshelf. I can't wait to read more from this author.
