Sin is coming...prepare to swoon.
Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him — but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking.
Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent — and irresistible — adversary before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him.
What do you do when the boy of your dreams is too bad to be true?
Well going by the title of the book, I got exactly what I expected and then some. I laughed throughout this book and the pages kept on turning. I had to know what was going to happen next especially with all the scandal going on. This is a YA book but be prepared for references of sex, drugs and profanity. Hopefully this won’t deter you from giving this book a chance as this did not stop me from putting the book down, I don’t think it’s something that teens of today have not heard or seen on T.V before.
Malkin’s writing is totally original and unique, and has a nice flow to it. Malkin has a way with words that draws you in to her world. I enjoyed this book very much. Swoon is Malkin’s first novel in the paranormal genre and I have to give props to her, she did a fantastic job because I was totally swooned.
