Fallen by Lauren Kate
With all that being said, Fallen is a good book. There are enough hints and clues to keep you reading to find out who -or what - these characters really are. The main character is Luce, a smart teenager who happens to see dark figures, or shadows as she calls them, at times when she is very vulnerable. After a tragic accident, she is sent to a reform school where many of the students and staff aren't quite what they seem.
Her focus is on two boys, Daniel and Cam. She finds herself attracted to both but feels drawn to Daniel. It's as if she knows him from somewhere else. With the help of her friend, she tries to solve the mystery of who Daniel really is and why she feels so safe when she's with him.
This book is written for young adults, but even us "old" adults can enjoy a story of good and evil. I do recommend it even if it will leave you frustrated and wanting more!
