Goodreads Summary:

Someone needed to put a stop payment on Jennifer Check.
The sign says Welcome to Devil's Kettle, Pop. 7,036. Come See What's Cookin' No, seriously . . . that's what it says.

Some people find it hard to believe that a babe like Jennifer Check would associate with a dork like me, Needy Lesnicki. But we had history. We'd been the Wonder Twins since we were preverbal, and sandbox love never dies. Or at least that's what I thought.

But after that night in the woods, Jennifer was different. She "looked" different. And then the killings began. . . .
A lot of people ask me if I'm sorry I did it. I'm only sorry I didn't do it sooner.

This was a very short novel.  I received it in a grab box of books from a book sale.  I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but what I got sure wasn’t it.  Jennifer Check was in the woods one night, and when she came out she was different.  This was the same time that killings began in her hometown.  Her best friend is worried and isn’t sure what to think.  Then, everything starts to unravel.  Jennifer decides to show herself to her best friend and reveal to her the truth behind what is happening.  Now that she has the truth, what is her friend going to do about it?

I kept reading this novel because it just seemed so bizarre.  It’s under 200 pages and everything happens pretty quickly.  There isn’t much of a backstory, and you’re kind of thrown into the story.  I actually laughed throughout this book because I wasn’t sure if I should be scared or not.  It was just crazy, silly, and unrealistic.  If you are looking for a book that is a quick read and makes you laugh a bit, this would be it!
