"Mikayla doesn’t want much: just to rock out to her favorite band, become the next Kwiki Stop video gaming champion, and keep her Q-tip habit under control. What she does want is the sight of the sudden inexplicable dark auras around everyone to stop. Problem is, those auras are demons and Mikayla is the last trait holder with the power to ban them. Which is a total buzz kill.
To make matters worse, the town folk of Sulphur Springs don’t look the same, and her classmates are a little dark in the eyes. There are murders, suicides, reckless skinny-dipping, gratuitous use of Q-tips, and newfound powers that Mikayla must learn to control.
Her past becomes present when a shape-shifter tells her what her true identity is, and how to keep the demons of Hell from nipping at her Converse. Through him she’ll discover who to trust, who to kiss, and how valuable her abilities are to the right beings. Because the evils of Hell aren’t staying down without a fight.
Or without her soul."

This book is definitely one of my Top 10 books that I'm looking forward to in 2011. I mean seriously, doesn't this sounds awesome!? I love that Mikayla is a trait holder with this rare power and that the dark auras are taking over her town. Also this shape-shifter guy sounds completely swoon worthy: "through him she'll discover who to trust, who to kiss and how valuable her abilities are to the right beings" that sounds amazing! Not to mention, I'm pretty interested in finding out why she's so obsessed with Q tips!
