Beautiful Creatures by Kami GarciaBeautiful Creatures

You may have seen the movie version of this in the theatres, you may not.  Either way, you should pick up this book – the first in a four book series.

Ethan Wate is a high school student living in the small Southern town of Gatlin.  He’s lived here his whole life and he’s bored to death.  He can’t wait to graduate and leave as quickly as possible.  That’s until he meets Lena Duchannes, the new girl in his school who is completely different from anyone he’s met in Gaitlin.  Not only does she dress and act differently from the other girls in town, she also has an odd connection with Ethan.  He’s been dreaming about her since before he set eyes on her and soon after they meet he discovers that they can communicate by thought.

What are the special powers that Lena seems to possess?  What is the mysterious family curse that she seems obsessed with?  What’s the deal with her uncle who only appears at night and never ventures into town?

You’ll be hooked from the first chapter.
