The She by Carol Plum-Ucci
Blocking out the events of that horrible night, Evan's memories flood back as he interacts with Grey Sheiley, a classmate who watched The She claim another victim. As they try to discover the fine line between fact and fiction, they develop a growing respect as well as the understanding of each other's personal demons. And, Evan finds out that with Grey, still waters run deep.
I had to work to read this novel. The cover was so cool that I figured it had to get better, but the reality is that it never did - "don't judge a book by its cover." The author took nearly 300 pages to get to any kind of action, and the love story was too contrived and predictable. In fact, the entire story was cliche and boring. Very disappointing.
