My Rating: 5 stars

Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie’s always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she's falling for a shape-shifter, and she's the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, but still. Normal 
Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. 
So much for normal. Taken from
Paranormalcy was something I didn't expect. It was fun, cute and refreshing. Evie is very girly and we see it all the time. From her pink clothing to her obsession with her favourite soap opera. But those are the few things that make her feel normal until she realizes again that she lives underground and her main job is to capture and take paranormals in to IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency).

Evie has a special ability, an ability that makes her see through all glamours and she is vital to IPCA. When someone breaks in IPCA Evie is the only one who can see him and she is afraid she is already crushing on him. 

I liked that Evie was a kick-ass character but also at the same time very girly as a teenager her age would be. I knew I would like her when I learned about her taser which was pink and she had also named it tasey! How cool is that! Instand like. Evie is also sheltered from the outside world making her obsesion with normal things like school and lockers hilarious. Kiersten White managed to create such a fun world that I can not wait for the release of Supernaturally! 

Overall I loved it and I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun but still kick-ass book with a lot of pinky things involved in it! Also to those who love audiobooks do listen to this book. It was my first audiobook and I loved it! The narrator's voice was just perfect for it.
