About Fury Frayed:
Megan’s temper lands her in Girderon Academy, an exclusive school founded in a town of misfit supernatural creatures. It’s the one place she should be able to fit in, but she can’t. Instead, she itches to punch the smug sheriff in his face, pull the hair from a pack of territorial blondes, and kiss the smile off the shy boy’s face. Unfortunately, she can’t do any of that, either, because humans are dying and all clues point to her.

With Megan’s temper flaring, time to find the real killer and clear her name is running out. As much as she wants to return to her own life, she needs to embrace who and what she is. It’s the only way to find and punish the creature responsible.

My Thoughts:
Promising start to a new-to-me series.

This book is all about introducing Megan, our main protagonist, and her burgeoning powers to the world of urban fantasy readers... Angst. Teen rivalry. Love interest... Megan, in all her glory, mistakes and all, has her heart in the right place. So I'm okay with that, even though there isn't much of a plot. There is also the way the story was told, which is really good, that makes this book an enjoyable read!
