The Enemy's Table

4 out of 5 stars

Beryl Wesley moves to the frigid north to live with her aunt and finish high school when her dad gets a job in Hong Kong. As if a new school, church, group of friends, and environment don't present enough of a challenge there is something sinister going on Beryl's new town. Teenage girls are committing suicide and Beryl keeps sensing an evil presence behind the scenes. She soon finds herself in a fight for her life and her soul with some surprising backup.

The Enemy's Table is very well written with strong characters and great tension. There were two personal pet peeves that kept me from rating this as five stars - 'baby' as a term of endearment for an equal partner in a relationship and forever love at eighteen after two months of knowing each other when one person wasn't even honest about who they were. This is just my personal taste.

In all I would recommend The Enemy's Table for lovers of YA with a supernatural twist.
