Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon

Synopsis (from goodreads.com):
Harper Madison isn't like other girls. She has extraordinary powers, but her inability to control them has gotten her kicked from so many foster homes she's lost count. Shadowford Home is her last chance, and she hopes Peachville High will be the fresh start she needs. But when evidence ties her to the gruesome murder of a Demons cheerleader, Harper discovers this small town has a big secret.

Jillian’s Reivew:
I was happily surprised to discover that this free Kindle download was actually fairly well-written with an interesting storyline. It's about witches, one in particular, who grows up destroying things with her mind and she doesn't know how or why. Harper is a pretty decent character who doesn't say every annoying that comes to her mind and who is brave when she needs to be.

The romance between her and her love interest was pretty great... the one time they actually kiss. Other than that there's nothing. Yet, there is so much to this story that captures the reader that the lack of romance is forgivable. :)

This reminded me of the Darkest Powers series, though not as well written and with less swearing.
