The “Paranormalcy” trilogy, written by Kiersten White, is a humor packed book about the love stricken girl Evie who is trying to find out where she belongs. I really loved these books! The “Paranormalcy” trilogy is something young adults should read, especially if they like fantasy stories mixed with humor and teen romance.

 

In the first book, “Paranormalcy”, the International Paranormal Containment Agency (IPCA) takes Evie in at age eight and gives her a job. She is best friends with a mermaid, a faerie’s ex-girlfriend and she is falling in love with a shape shifter. Suddenly, paranormals are dying in a mysterious ways. Evie starts dealing with strange dreams filled with voices and prophecies. Is she somehow related to the strings of death? Is she really human?

 

“Supernaturally”, the second installment to the trilogy, is filled with 'normal' teenage life. Well, for the most part. Evie finally gets to have a normal high school and locker filled life with her shape shifter boyfriend, Lend. Just as she starts to realize the normal life isn't all that her favorite T. V. show Easton Heights plays it out to be, Evie gets a second chance to work with IPCA. Soon her missions start turning into bad events, one after another and so on. Maybe going back to IPCA wasn't the right choice… Then Reth shows up with news of a battle brewing with the fey.

 

The last book of the trilogy, “Endlessly”( released July 26, 2012), is a perfect balance of humor and suspense. No matter how Evie tries, she can't escape her strange past. On her school break, one that was supposed to be joyful, a huge group of paranormals show up at her house claiming she's the only one who can save them. A war is brewing between the faerie courts, something that could result in the end of the paranormal world. And the fate lies in Evie's hands.
 

“So much for normal. ”
