Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls #1) by C.C. Hunter

Summary from Goodreads

Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams, Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by
side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely
she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.
Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

     Born at midnight was a diverse start to a new series filled with cute Fae, werewolves, and shapeshifters. Kylie is girl sent to a "school for troubled teens" after being found at a party with drugs. She soon discovers that Shadow Falls and its attendees aren't what she thinks and she isn't what she thinks either. Kylie was going through a tough
time in the book with her parents divorcing and her boyfriend breaking up with her because she doesn't want to sleep with him. She has resentment for her parents and issues trusting people. She refuses to believe that she is not human and it irritated me that it took her most of the book to accept this fact. All in all, though, I liked Kylie. She
was a different kind of girl. She was quiet without being shy and usually went for what she wanted. I loved Kylie's friends, Miranda and Della. They were all so different and Miranda and Della argued a lot, but they were a tight group.
     My favorite parts of BORN AT MIDNIGHT
were the cute boys. Kylie is stuck between her feelings for Derek, a half Fae that reminds her of her ex and Lucas, who she knows from her childhood. I think that I am totally on team Lucas. He is so sweet and protective and has known Kylie since they were kids. I like Derek too, but just not as much as I like Lucas.
     BORN AT MIDNIGHT was an awesome read that hooked me from the first page and the sequel comes on in October, which just happens to be my birthday you can
guess what I getting. :)
