Speed Demon

Sixteen-year-old Kenzie Sutcliffe thought that being an average teenager was hard enough on her. Now she happened to find out that there was a demon hole located right under her shower. How did she find this out? When she dropped her acne medicine down the drain by accident, Levi, a demon, entered through the portal. Now she had to find a quick way to close the portal so no more demons would be popping out of the drain. 
She befriended Levi and they made up some excuse that his parents were going through a terrible divorce and he needed some place to stay while they sorted their divorce details out. Kenzie’s parents agreed for him to stay with their family. Now having Levi around, she thought that he would help provide the answers she was looking for with her new job of demon slaying. After doing some investigating, she found out that the only way to close the portal was to drive the family’s minivan through the kitchen in an attempt to destroy the water pipes housed in the walls. By destroying the plumbing, the water portal would close and she wouldn’t have to worry about any more demons barging into her life. Or at least that is what she had hoped anyway.
As timed passed, she started finding out, with not much help from Levi, that there was more portals that could open up at anytime hence having more demons pop up that she would now have to slay. Her teenage life was getting more complicated by the minute.
If things weren’t out of control enough for Kenzie, her relationship with her boyfriend Adam began to turn sour because he started to notice that Levi had feelings for her. Try as she might, Kenzie just wasn’t seeing what Adam was seeing.
What was this sixteen year old, non-experienced demon slayer supposed to do to get her life back on track again? How was she supposed to go about doing this demon slaying when she didn’t even know she was a demon slayer to begin with?  Do more portals open up and wreck havoc in Kenzie’s life? Can she find a way to single handedly close the portals if they were to open up?
This story was a fun and entertaining read for me. I loved how the author wrote in a comfortable language that was so benefitting to the teenage characters involved. There were numerous times I found myself laughing so hard at Kenzie’s dialog and actions that my sides were hurting. I loved the story concept and I could even see the story being turned into a comical movie. I would most definitely recommend this story to teenagers and adults alike. This one is a keeper in my library and I eagerly look forward to reading more stories written by this talented author.

Book Blurb for Speed Demon

Kenzie's on the fast track— to trouble.
Guys can be annoying, but the demonic kind are the worst...
That is how Kenzie Sutcliffe felt about Levi. He shot out of Kenzie's shower, a.k.a. the demon hole, not too long ago. It was hard for Kenzie to close the portal—it involved her driving the family's minivan into the kitchen. And what thanks does she get for that? She's grounded, not allowed to drive, and getting chauffeured around by a demon whose driver's license is dubious at best. Plus, the demon tells her, when one portal closes—another one opens...
Even though Levi can be a pain, Kenzie just can't let the other demons drag him back to hell. Guess that means it's up to her to save the day...again!
