Title: Every Other Day
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Summary: Every second day Kali is just your average 16-year-old girl, who reluctantly transferred halfway through first semester junior year from a gifted high school program run by her father’s university to public school. She has no friends, a mother who disappeared when she was just a kid, and an absentee father who doesn’t seem to understand her at all.
But every other day she is something else entirely. She is confident and beyond strong. And, on those days she is not human. She is the thing that hunts and kills supernatural creatures that would do harm to the human race and she is practically indestructible. Kali doesn’t know what she is on those days, but she knows there is no denying her need to hunt and destroy evil.
One day, Kali notices a demon mark on the back of the most popular girl at school. A mark that means she will be dead within 24 hours. Unfortunately, it is on a day when Kali is simply a human. Without the benefit of super strength or extraordinary healing powers Kali decides to try to save this girl. It’s a decision that will change everything. It will create friendships, threaten family relationships, endanger lives, and change the hunter within Kali.
