Summary:
Lenny Petrakas is worried about her skin. Not the way you're thinking. Not like that at all. While most people spend time concerned about dirt and elasticity, temperature and moisture, Lenny had a more pressing problem. Something is after her. Something evil that won't stop until it has peeled every last inch of skin the teen's body. And the, it may end her misery quickly, or it may dump her body in the woods. let infection and dehydration run its course.

Review:
The confusion hit me when I first heard the name Boo Hag, I have never heard about a boo hag. My curiosity came afterwards and I knew I had to read this book. 

The Boo Hag revolves around Lenny, a 16 year old girl with good grades and normal life. She's like a normal teenager, also worried about her skin. But difference is that she has real reasons to be afraid for her skin, as a boo hag wants to eat it. How can she fight this monster?

The book have a great plot, the story is wonderful. It's exciting and David drags you into the book. Sometimes I got this creepy feeling that someone was watching me, so it's a very great book, that manages to bring the feelings from the character to you.

Lenny is very cute, she has a super personality and is really strong. She has great friends, like Anna (that are very likable) Anna may be my favorite character, she is strong and I absolutelyadore the love between her and Brian. I wish it was some more of it.

I'm not the biggest fan of paranormal books, but this book was really great! It separates itself from other paranormal books, especially because this does not contain  zombies, werewolves or fairies. This is special in many ways, even though David could have changed some parts.

But I think David have done a great job and I will absolutely read the next!

I give this book 5 stars!
