Really great story

This 40 chapter book is great. I am on chapter 22 and you can barely put this book down. Elodie can hear, unlike normal ghosts, and Sophie and Jenna met two other demons named Daisy and Nick. Daisy and Nick both drink, smoke, and kiss each other but only once or twice. Jenna has a fired named Vix. Vix is another story. But I can say that she is a vampire.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (9):

DEMONGLASS is darker than Hex Hall, but is every bit as witty and fun for tween readers. In addition to battles and romance, this installment features a fashion duel: A demon magically changes Sophie's khaki pants and t-shirt into a white bunny outfit, and she fights back by quickly dressing the gentleman in a pink tutu. More fun comes when the girls visit a London nightclub and witness their English teacher -- vampire and poet Lord Byron -- dancing with another bloodsucker. When he sees the girls he "flips them the bird" and walks away with his nose in the air, and Sophie admits that she and Jenna were hardly the desirable scholarly students. These clever touches -- mixed with a feisty heroine, doomed love, and some intriguing mystery -- will leave readers thirsting for the next installment.
