"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Royal Street

         I sent out my empathetic senses, trying to feel any buzz of magic coming from him. There was still a tingle in the air that wasn't wizard's magic, but it was probably left over from Jean Lafitte. So he wasn't a wizard, and he din't look old enough to be an Elder. I studied the badge, flipping it over. The back of mine identified me as a licensed sentinel. His read, simply, ENFORCER.
         Good Lord, he was a terminator
(Pg. 73)

This is a book that fits into the genre of "New Adult", as it is skewed a little older than Young Adult.  The inclusion of the terrible results of Hurricane Katrina really makes the book resonate.  Using real news reports at the beginning of each chapter gives the story a grounding that is necessary with the supernatural things happening.  DJ is a great protagonist, and the mythology within the book is really fresh, and enjoyable.  Loving the book so far!
