Summary: Seventeen-year-old Maggie Cunningham is tough, smart, and sassy. She’s also not like other girls her age, but then, who would be when the family business is monster hunting? Combat boots, ratty hooded sweatshirts, and hair worn short so nothing with claws can get a grip, Maggie’s concerns in life slant more toward survival than fashion or boys. Which presents a problem when Maggie’s mother informs Maggie that she can’t get her journeyman’s license for hunting until she loses her virginity.
Something about virgin blood turning vampires into pointy rage monsters. Blood and gore and insides being on the outside and all that.
Maggie’s battled ghosts and goblins and her fair share of house brownies, but finding herself a boy – fitting in with her peers – proves a much more daunting task than any monster hunt. Did you know normal girls don’t stuff their bras with holy water balloons? Nor do they carry wooden stakes in their waistbands. And they care about things like “matching” and “footwear.” Of course, they also can’t clean a gun blindfolded, shoot a crossbow, or exorcise ghosts from a house. Which means they’re lame and Maggie’s not. Because Maggie’s awesome. The Awesome, in fact. Just ask her. She’d be more than happy to tell you.
After she finds herself a date.
I was able to read this early due to the author.
While I was reading this I wasn’t sure how I was going to write the review. Honestly I’d really love to go straight into how awesome it was, hence the title and how the characters were well written and how they were all funny. The characters came alive while I read and it felt like I was inside the book.
I loved how Maggie didn’t care about how she looked, she expressed her opinions a lot and made me wish I was her.
And I also loved how the story was so original and funny.
I really wish there was a sequel.
Overall I would rate this a full 5 stars! This is a book is recommend to anyone who loves some action and someone who wants to read something funny.
Rating: 5 stars
