The Boo Hag by David Morgan: Review

Lenny Petrakas is worried about her skin. Not the way you're thinking. Not like that at all. While most people spend time concerned about dirt and elasticity, temperature and moisture, Lenny has a more pressing problem. Something is after her. Something evil that won't stop until it has peeled every last inch of skin from the teen's body. And then, it may end her misery quickly, or it may dump her body in the woods. Let infection and dehydration run its course.

Lenny is just your normal sixteen-year-old girl. Was. Was just your normal sixteen-year-old girl. Quiet and polite. Petite. Introspective, but not to the point of isolation. Loyal? Fiercely so. Outstanding? Noteworthy? Different? No, no, and no. Or so she thought. What started as an eerie feeling, a certainty that someone had been in her room while she slept, has spiraled into something far worse. Something was in her room. Something that finds her highly different, extremely noteworthy, and intensely outstanding.

Game over? Wrong. Lenny's a fighter, and she isn't about to lie down and take what's coming to her. Enlisting the help of her best friend, a not-so-secret admirer, the hottest guy in school, one odious cheerleader, and a paranormalist teacher, Lenny is facing her fears head on, in a battle she knows can only end in death.
(From Goodreads)

The Boo Hag is the first book in 'The Lenny Chronicles' by David Morgan. When asked if I would be interested in reading this book, I have to say I was a little worried; I don't deal well with the scarier stuff out there. I am so glad I decided to chance the nightmares! Morgan grabs your attention with the very first line and never lets go.

The main character, Lenny is a really amazing girl, even if she doesn't realize that about herself. She's strong, loyal and funny. Even when she knows she's the one in danger, she's more concerned for her best friend, Anna. Ah, Anna; she really might be the perfect best friend. These girls would go to the ends of the earth for each other and God help you if you try to hurt either one of them. They are definitely the newest dynamic duo to be reckoned with. I love them. 

This book was simply excellent; very well written and descriptive with vibrant characters and a fast moving plot. The twists were completely unexpected and the story telling was fantastically funny. There is a great supporting cast of characters present here, too. You find yourself completely engrossed in this book and the cliffhanger ending really leaves you guessing! Honestly, I NEED to know what comes next for Lenny & her friends!
