Author: Jena Leigh
Check out on Goodreads!
Synopsis: Possessing the uncanny ability to fry a television set from twenty paces can really wreck a girl’s social life.
If you’re looking for proof, just ask sixteen-year-old Alexandra Parker. After catching her boyfriend in the arms of the prettiest girl in school, she made the journey from social elite to social pariah in a haze of electricity and exploding electronics. But finding herself at the bottom of Bay View High’s social hierarchy was nothing compared to the shock of discovering who—and what—she really is.
After being zapped out of a burning bookstore by the mysterious Declan—a hero nearly as handsome as he is infuriating—Alex finds herself under the protection of the powerful Grayson family. It’s through them that she learns the truth: that the world she’s always known is nothing like it appears to be… and that she has far more in common with them than she might want to believe.
Now, on the run from a fire-wielding hit man and a secretive government organization, Alex must navigate a strange and treacherous new world filled with superhuman mutants known as Variants. As she begins to unravel the many secrets of her family’s past, she uncovers the real reason for her parents’ death twelve years earlier—and finds out that the threat to her family, and to everyone she cares about, is still dangerously real.

Where to Stalk Jena!
When I first read the synopsis of this book I thought it was going to be another typical paranormal teenage love-filled novel, but it wasn’t. The book starts out with Alex who believes she is just a typical kid who has to deal with the ups and downs of being a teenager- including a cheating boyfriend. Alex soon discovers that she is anything but “typical” she has supernatural powers.
This book was full of suspense and mystery and it kept you guessing as to what was going to happen next. There was actually a fair amount of action within the book which kind of surprised me. I think the thing that surprised me the most was that the entire book took place over a week.
The characters in this book were very well developed and they all felt very natural together. Each of the characters brought a different aspect to the book, but all of them merged together to create a sort of family unit. It was nice to see that even though these characters were not a typical family, they still loved and cared for each other.
Finally, I have to commend Jena Leigh for her writing. She has an awesome writing style that just makes the words flow on the paper and makes you want to continue reading. You almost feel as though you are in her mind while you are reading the book because of the natural way the book is written.
