BEDEVILED: DADDY'S LITTLE ANGEL A Fresh New Series by Debut Author Shani Petroff


(Grosset & Dunlap; 9780448451114; August 20, 2009; Ages 8-12; $6.99)
A hilarious new series for girls that takes the perils of puberty to epic heights - good versus evil! Newcomer Shani Petroff is a bright new voice in contemporary tween fiction, and BEDEVILED is perfect for readers who aren't quite ready for vampires and zombies.

Angel Garrett has always known things were a bit…different in her family. What she never knew, until her thirteenth birthday, is that her father is Lou Cipher…as in Lucifer, the Devil, horns, tail and all.

All he wants to be is a part of her life. And in return he has the power to give Angel anything she wants—including popularity and a date with her long-time crush, Cole Daniels. But Angel will only accept him on her terms: get out of the devil business and leave his special powers out of the equation.

Is Angel condemning herself to an eternity of lunch at the losers’ table? Or can she and Daddy Dearest strike some kind of deal? And most importantly, does being the Devil's daughter mean Angel has some powers of her own?

BEDEVILED: DADDY'S LITTLE ANGEL is supernatural for the little sister, paranormal for pre-teens, and a unique take on the traditional coming-of-age novel. Readers will eagerly await the second book in the series, BEDEVILED: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY DRESS coming February 2010.
