The New Kid by Temple Mathews

This book is exclusive only at Borders, no e-books or this time.
Will Hunter is used to being the New Kid; Harrisburg High School is his fifth new school in less than three years. By now, he knows not to be fooled by the bright pep rallies, the wholesome jocks, the innocent cheerleaders. He knows the evil lurking underneath. It's the same evil that took his dad eight years ago; the same evil he battles every day.
Natalie Holand's life fell apart the night her sister Emily disappeared. No one believes her when she tells them what she saw: yellow eyes, glowing beneath the surface of the water in which Emily supposedly drowned. And Emily isn't the only person to go missing in Harrisburg lately. The town is changing, not for the better, and Natalie doesn't know why. What she does know is that, whatever's happening, it's bad, and the New Kid is right in the middle of it.
Because Will's got a secret even bigger than Harrisburg's . . . and there's more to it than even he knows.
Will Hunter fits his name perfectly. Meet the newest Demon Slayer in town. I got this book on the Twilight DVD release party, the cover seems super teeny bop-ish (you know what they say, do not judge the book by it's cover-applies every time) but the story was really good. I like the theme. It was actually quite a refreshing read, maybe because I mostly read about vampires. LOL. Will's character was strong but Natalie's and Rudy were pretty vague. The villain description, which was the demons and her minions were pretty new to me, but how Mathews described it made me a very clear idea on how ugly, menacing and outirght pure evil they were. The succession was pretty predictable and it lacks the essence of that "page-turner" attitude. The quest on finding Natalie's twin sister Emily is what kept me going and the curiosity of what happened to her makes this book worth reading.
