Overview

Devilish by Maureen Johnson

The only thing that makes St. Teresa's Preparatory School for Girls bearable for Jane is her best friend, Ally. But when Ally changes into a whole different person literally overnight the fall of their senior year, Jane's suddenly alone—and very confused. Turns out, Ally has sold her soul in exchange for popularity—to a devil masquerading as a sophomore at St. Teresa's! Now it's up to Jane to put it all on the line to save her friend from this ponytail-wearing, cupcake-nibbling demon . . . without losing her own soul in the process.

Jane's best friend, Ally, has always been there, and always been pretty much the same. She's never been a social butterfly or anything, but she and Jane have been through a lot at their all-girls Catholic high school, and now they've reached their senior year. One big part of being a senior at St. Teresa's is having a "Little." This means picking a freshman or new student and showing them around. On Big-Little Day, there is a forty-five-minute period when Bigs and Littles pair up, and having a good Little is definitely a status symbol for seniors.

As Jane fears, Ally does not do so well. She throws up all over the one freshman coming in her direction, and runs to the bathroom where Jane comforts her, sacrificing her own chance for a Little. Surprisingly, though, Ally does get a Little--a new sophomore girl named Lanalee.

Ally gets more than a Little. Soon after pairing up with Lanalee, she shows up at school with new hair, new clothes, a new cell phone--and a new personality. She's way more confident than before, but she's also blowing off Jane, her best friend. The new Ally is not necessarily improved.

There's more going on here than meets the eye, though. Who knew that selling your soul was actually possible? Well, now Jane and Ally do...but how do you stop the devil?

DEVILISH is a funny, fascinating, and unique take on selling your soul. It's wonderfully written, with interesting and lifelike characters that readers are sure to love and love to hate. The supernatural element in this story is nicely done, and keeps unraveling to the end, showing more and more of what's going on, even when you think you've got it all figured out. This novel kept my attention all the way through, and is sure to be a favorite of anyone who reads it!

I have a very open mind when it comes to books, but this book was almost too weird. The plot was interesting, but I don't think it worked very well.The ending was very, very strange and a bit stupid. If you're looking for something new, read this, but don't expect too much out of it. This was the first book by Maureen Johnson that I didn't really like.

This story was to strange to be engrossing. The plot was all over the place and shallow, and the characters were unbelievable and flat. However, it was humorous, but not exactly memorable.

Jane and Allison were best friends,but the big-little competition, not only changed their friendship, but also their lives. Lanalee offers to be Allison's little (some school thing where freshmen are "owned" by the seniors) after an embarrassing incident in the gym. But.. she forgets to mention the fact that she's a demon, who plans to capture her soul by giving her everything she wants. Jane gets ripped apart from Allison faster than she ever imagined. With this she goes on a quest to save her best friend. Devilish shows how a loyal friendship can be, but also how unloyal. People can be selfish and greedy. It just goes to show how people will give up their best friends, or even their soul to get what they want, or just that last moment of popularity. It also proves the advice our parents gave us when our first love breaks our heart, "People are not always who you think they are". Who knows, there could always be descrete little imps running around in human form. Overall I thought it was great book, funny yet suspensful, not to mention the love story that unfolds.

I thought the book was very good. As unrealistic as it is, the book is good. The charecters feel, and there emotion almost feel like they are bleeding on the page. It has a sappy ending, but it's very good. Some people might count it as a romance novel because there is stalker - ish checter in the book, but I dont want to reveal anything, but lets just say things work out. The whole "Demons" consuming souls thing seemed really stupid to me, but it left a great book for interesting plot twists and whatnot. The book is a bit hard to fallow in the middle, but it was good. Maureen Johnson really knows how to write a good book. The books that I recommended are different in many ways, although they are all very good. I strongly, Strongly, Strongly Recommend THe Disreputable History of Frankie Landau - Banks. The Title sounds really boring, but it's very good. (I think that any girl right now would recommend Twilight...)

Devilish is a great quick read for someone who just wants a quick story of mystery and demons. This book was not one that could bring upon an obssesion like Twilight, but it's ok if you have nothing else to read.

This book is so good. I'm not one for teenage girly books but this book was hilarious and I had no idea what was coming. It was unpredictable which was nice and I really recommend it to anyone who likes to read a lot.
