Every other day, Kali D'Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies. She's human.
And then every day in between . . . She's something else entirely.

Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why 
she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.

When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by 
one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her and, unfortunately, she'll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive...and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

My Take:

In Every Other Day, Kali is walking around trying to find the things that go bump in the night and than she kills it. She is not your typical teenager she has a secret and part of that secret is that every other day she is normal and the days she isn't she is a bit more than human. The want/need to kill is inside her and she is able to sense when the bad things show up, she feels its her duty to take out those things because that is who she is. Everything seemed to be okay until she finds a symbol on a classmate, but the day she sees it is when she is normal, even though she knows what danger she can get into by showing who or what she is. But with the life of an innocent put in danger Kali can not do anything, she has to try at least right.

Along the way we are introduced to others who try and see why Kali would put her own life in danger to save someone she only just met. With the clock ticking down, Kali needs to stay alive as a normal human can she survive or will evil prevail.

Jennifer gave me a new perspective on what kind of things go bump in the night and when you realize what is inside Kali its hard to go back to thinking that the paranormal can ever be normal again. Follow Kali as she unlocks the truth to the questions she didn't even know she needed to ask.

5/5 Stars
