It's not everyday a teenage girl is singled out for assassination.
Crysta has come to accept the fact that she is freakishly different. Her shocking white hair, creepy powers, and weird eating habits have prevented her from fitting in with her various foster families. Now that she is fully emancipated and providing for herself, she hopes that life will settle down and become something halfway normal.
Her hopes are shattered when a dangerous man with lethal intent breaks into her apartment, but this enticing stranger isn't what he seems. Is he here to kill her or protect her from others who will?
My Fair Assassin is a romantic short story with elements of paranormal and urban fantasy woven in for an entertaining read. It also touches on social issues involving personal self-esteem and acceptance. Adults and teens alike will enjoy getting lost in the pages of Crysta's story as she finally comes to accept who she is...or rather what she is
My Review: Crysta is lovely, however she doesn't fit in with everyone. She looks different from everyone around her. Has powers. Been to fosters homes, and now that she is free to live on her own, things should be normal.
Given a few days and things seem to be going okay, until a creepy man breaks into her apartment, but why is here really there?
This story is a quick read, but it is filled with everything you need to be sucked in. You can relate to this book, the topics are seen in everyday life and it was just perfectly written.
