Same utter chaos.
I jerked away from him and into a girl. I now had an audience. Students surrounded me, and every one I touched died.
Same utter chaos.
One after the other until I finally lunged into the bathroom and locked myself in a stall. The shock of each death shuddered through me as I heaved my lunch into the toilet. When the spasms eased, I spit out the sour taste and tried to clear my head. To understand what I was seeing.
Something changed. Something happened in the last few minutes that altered the fates of every kid at school. But they were in different places. On the water. In a storm shelter. In Town Hall. Fleeing the country in a chartered Leer jet. And it wasn't just them. It was their brothers and sisters, their parents and friends. In exactly seven days, everyone in the city of Bangor, Maine, was going to die. But somehow, I didn't think it would stop there.
Something was different. What could have- Then it hit me. The boy. The tug at my coat. I reached into my pocket and pulled out a note. It was the third one I'd received in quite the same manner. Stuffed into the pocket of my jacket when I wasn't looking.
Dread consumed me as I opened it. This one had a stick figure drawing of two people, a boy and a girl. The girl-who I was going to assume was me since she had garishly red curly hair-was lying on the ground, presumably dead. Blood pooled on her chest and sat in puddles around her head and torso. The boy clutched a knife in his three-fingered hand, but he was leaning over her. Over me. And a darkness was leaving her mouth and entering his. Like he wanted what was inside me. Like he welcomed it.
And somehow he knew. When I was six years old, I had been possessed by a demon. A demon that was still inside me. But no one here knew that. How could they? And yet this boy did.
Five words made up the text of the note. I read them over and over in disbelief. Fear darkened the edges of my periphery. Five words. Five words that had the power to make the darkness inside me quake and buck inside my body. Five words that would change the fate of the world. Five words that read simply, I know what you are.

"Unique, witty, and touching-I LOVED THIS BOOK!"
-P. C. Cast, New York Times bestselling author of the House of Night series "This book will keep you hungry for more from beginning to finish! You'll know enough to follow the story, but very little is given away throughout the novel, to keep readers constantly guessing. What a tease! If you're a fan of romance and fantasy, you'll definitely enjoy this book!"
-Miss Literati "Outrageously funny, sinfully s.e.xy, with a cast of characters that steals your heart from the very first page ... I loved this book!"
-Inara Scott, author of the Delcroix Academy series "She hits plenty of buttons: impossibly handsome boys, supernatural powers, hot romance, friendship, school rivalries, suspense, and comedy."
-Kirkus Reviews "Death and the Girl Next Door is unputdownable. Darynda Jones breathes fresh life into the young adult genre with exciting twists to legends we only think we understand and edgy, compelling characters you can't help but care about."
