Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I am a huge Buffy fan. And I love the idea that superhero is only a superhero some of the time. It makes the hero(ine) much more interesting. I was surprised by the direction that this book ultimately takes, but surprised in a good way. Kali legitimately has a reason to complain because basically her life changes from day to day without her control. And she wants to know if she is alone or if there are others like her. But she and her dad have a frosty relationship so she can't ask him and tip him off. The answer actually comes from a surprising source and I love that. Kali is a great character whether she is the hunter or not and she is very much a teenager despite her unusual nature. This is a fun read, not too gory or over the top, but just right with a unique concept.
