Becca is a new girl in high school which is never easy. Luckily, the popular girls take her in and while they expect some things of her that she isn’t quite comfortable with, she goes along with it. Until it turns out there’s a reason the girls run this high school, and it’s not pleasant. Squad is a story that talks about the struggles of being out of place. It shows how conforming isn’t always the best idea and can lead to issues. It addresses themes such as patriarchal issues, LGBTQ+ representation, being different, and not being complacent. I rate Squad 4 out of 5 stars.

Evie’s life may not be normal, but she likes to think it is, even if she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her former boyfriend is a faerie, she can’t help but fall for an incarcerated shape-shifter, and she is the only one who can see through the glamours worn by paranormals. But when she learns that she is at the heart of an age-old prophecy that foretells the destruction of all paranormal creatures, she realizes her life may not be what she thought it was. So much for normal.
