Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Meet Nick. A fourteen year old who knows it all. Living with only his mom (who happens to be a stripper) in a run down condo, Nick isn't Mr. Popular. He would love to be just like everyone else - who has money. His father is in prison and doesn't want anything to with him, and vice-versa.
Three of Nick's friends offer him a "look-out" job worth some major money. All he has to do is keep an eye out for cops. Nick figures it's easy cash (especially since his mom's not shaking her ass to make it) and since he's not technically doing anything illegal it'll be alright. Soon enough he realizes he's made a mistake. Nick saves the "Targets" from his friends only to wind up shot in the shoulder and beaten bad enough he has to stay in the hospital a while. He wouldn't have survived if wasn't for a stranger who has ninja moves. Pretty soon Nick learns a little about his rescuer and finds out the world isn't as easy going as he thought. Zombies, werewolf football captains, demon bodyguards and immortal vampire slayers who would do anything to save humanity. Hmmm....oh yeah, and LOVE....kind of.
