Jael has always felt like a freak. She’s never kissed a boy, she never knew her mom, and her dad’s always been superstrict—but that’s probably because her mom was a demon, which makes Jael half demon and most definitely not a normal sophomore girl. On her sixteenth birthday, a mysterious present unlocks her family’s dangerous history and Jael’s untapped potential. What was merely an embarrassing secret before becomes a terrifying reality.Title: Misfit

I had gotten a copy to read from Netgalley and was excited to dig in after I read the excerpt online. But much to my surprise by getting to page 16, nothing was exciting enough to keep me going. I rarely find books I read like that, even ones I had to read in school.
I think it had to do with the perspective of the way it was written that didn't suit my reading needs. It had such hopes, but on some level it just didn't work for me.
Maybe down the road when I have the time or remember, I can re-read again. But right now, I'm not feeling this book.
