Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

A wonderful departure from reality's normality. That best sums up this unique world of IPCA a group of agents tasked with locating, tagging, and bagging paranormal creatures the world over. And the star of this organization, the only person on earth to see through the glamors these creatures show the rest of us to hide their true natures is a pretty, young girl. An orphan who had been taken in by the agency, who has been trained, and who has worked for all her known years. A teenager who longs for a normal life in high school, with classes, and gossip, and her very own locker. A girl named Evie. Using faery paths to travel, a pink teaser only she could carry, and trying desperately to act like a normal teen despite falling for a guy made of water, and trying to avoid a faery named Reth who wants her for himself. Evie fights to save paranormals from being slaughtered by a fire girl who oddly enough glows with the same luminescence that's on her own heart, and wrists thanks to Reth. Whether part of a grand scheme, or whether she can do anything at all to stop the killing this young lady takes the reader on an epic journey far away from reality. The reading smooth, and easy on the eyes, as well as the mind, and flows like water. I am now a fan, and will own all this writer puts forth.  A quick history lesson.  The word (faery) spelled this way is the archaic form of the word. It isn't wrong. It's one of those precious few words with different spellings. Modern English spells it fairy. They are one in the same, and make  reading charming. Keltic is another one. Much of faery lore comes from Ireland. Kiersten incorperates both in this truely enjoyable series.
