Elliott, Jenny. Save Me.

Elliott, Jenny.  Save Me.  Macmillan/Feiwel & Friends  2015  312p  $9.99  ISBN 978-1-250-06147-8        jr/sr  Conflict  E-BN
This is a great read for teenagers who enjoy a mystery and have an interest in the occult.  It is a fast-paced read that will keep readers alternately cringing and hoping for a romance to blossom between Caro and David (her English student teacher).  At the same time Caro’s best friend Rachel finds a friend in a classmate, but their friendship leads to trouble.  Amber, David’s ex-girlfriend, draws Rachel and her boyfriend into the occult as well as casting a spell on Caro.  It is the struggle between good and evil that is playing out in the story as a new roadblock presents itself on each page.  Rachel’s new friend, Garren, seems almost too good to be true as he helps everyone extricate themselves from various spells and provides an Archbishop for an exorcism.

Summary: Something mysterious is happening in the coastal town of Liberty, Oregon.  Cara has an unprecedented encounter with a whale, falls in love, and is bespelled by a witch. A new friend, who is possibly too good to be true, helps her survive her senior year.
