In My Totally Awkward Supernatural Crush by Laura Toffler-Corrie, Jenna Bloom is just an average middle school student until her family takes her to her least favorite restaurant for her birthday, where she meets Cowpoke Luke, her waiter and one true love. Oh, and he also happens to be an angel. Jenna can't believe that Luke could actually be interested in her, and yet he is! Unfortunately he's got a demonic foe named Adam who could potentially complicate matters, and when the two boys have a big showdown at the local community theater's performance of Fiddler on the Roof, Jenna is right in the middle of it all.
In this offbeat fantasy parody from Toffler-Corrie (The Life and Opinions of Amy Finawitz), ordinary 14-year-old Jenna finds out that every 100 years, a door opens "that provides spiritual entities, both pure and impure, a means to travel through our dimension." When Luke a beautiful boy with amazing singing, ice-skating, and telepathic abilities transfers to school, Jenna suspects something is up. But a "sinister" new boy, Adam, quickly reveals his supernatural powers, too. While this book has a fantasy backdrop, readers will most appreciate its humor. Adam and Luke end up starring in the school production of Fiddler on the Roof, for example, which leads to a creative final face-off. Also, characters deliver some hilarious lines (when Luke tries to end a fledging romance with Jenna, she snaps, "So you had a brief life and a tragic death, and then an angelic rebirth and now you're trying to corral a demon back to wherever he goes back to. Boo hoo! It's always you, you, you!"). For readers tired of paranormal clich s, this will be a welcome antidote. Ages 12 up.
