Evil Librarian

By Michelle Knudsen

He’s young. He’s hot. He’s also evil. He’s . . . the librarian.

When Cynthia Rothschild’s best friend, Annie, falls head over heels for the new high-school librarian, Cyn can totally see why. He’s really young and super cute and thinks Annie would make an excellent library monitor. But after meeting Mr. Gabriel, Cyn realizes something isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the creepy look in the librarian’s eyes, or the weird feeling Cyn gets whenever she’s around him. Before long Cyn realizes that Mr. Gabriel is, in fact . . . a demon. Now, in addition to saving the school musical from technical disaster and trying not to make a fool of herself with her own hopeless crush, Cyn has to save her best friend from the clutches of the evil librarian, who also seems to be slowly sucking the life force out of the entire student body! From best-selling author Michelle Knudsen, here is the perfect novel for teens who like their horror served up with a bit of romance, plenty of humor, and some pretty hot guys (of both the good and evil variety).

  • The funny, relatable narrator and the humorous, easy touch of the prose are the perfect fit for the YA audience.
  • The perfect antidote for teens who love horror and romance but are looking for something funnier and more light-hearted than the current dystopian and paranormal bestsellers.
  • With a high school production of Sweeney Todd taking center stage in the plot, it's like Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Glee!
