This YA take on Faust in a Catholic girls' high school is clever, fun, and full of tasty surprises.
Jane and Allison are best friends. Jane doesn't care about what everyone thinks, while Allison is the exact opposite. When Big-Little day comes along, Allison is determined to get a Little. Only disaster strikes and she's left committing the most embarrassing moment of her life. And she has no Little. The next day Allison comes to school beautiful and smarta changed girl with a whole new attitude. And what's Jane left doing? Trying to save Allison from the devil. With the help of a strangely cute (and wise) boy named Owen.
The interesting concept of this book really drawls you in. I found this book to be interesting, and funny with some action and romance. It's easy to read so the chapters fly by and before you know it you've finished the book.
Senior year just isn't what Jane Jarvis thought it would be. First, her best friend Allison manages to mess up the big-little ceremony, and embarrass herself by throwing up. In the end, Jane and Ally are left little-less, until Lanalee Tremone steps in to be Ally's little.
The next day, Ally's got a new haircut, new clothes and a new attitude. Ally claims the demon gave it all to her, but Jane has a hard time believing, until she trades places with Ally, and has to fight for a way out.
I loved Devilish, it was so fresh, and exciting. Watching Jane try to understand something she doesn't believe in, it was hilarious. Lanalee is the perfect antagonist, with her apparent "sweetness". It was fun to watch Jane outsmart the demon, and save them all.

I haven't read many books like this, it's so different but in a good way. Two girls, Jane and Allison, have been school outcasts and best friends for a long time. So it's obvious that Jane would notice when her best friend sells her soul to the devil. The devil comes in the form of Lanalee, a smart, worldly girl with a love for cupcakes. She is sinister and wants as many souls as she can get. Jane plans to save Allison but gets betrayed and needs help from someone else. The author takes a simple, common theme such as high-school popularity and changes it completely when she puts blatant evil on the scene.
Jane and her best friend, ALly, are not the most popular girls in thier school, and they had usually never minded. But after a terrible, embarrising accident and the appearence of a mysterious girl named lanalee, A strange chain of events occurs. Janemust realize the strange fact that Ally has sold her soul to the devil.
I loved this book. It was hilarious, it made you think, and you could never be sure of what was going to happen next. I ended up reading it twice because it was just so good.
After too-smart-for-her-own-good Jane's best friend Allison humiliates herself at their all-girl school's Big-Little event, the Allison Jane knows disappears. All of a sudden Allison has cute clothes, a new hairstyle, and a trendy cell phone. She's also hanging out with a new sophomore, Lanalee. With their friendship teetering, Jane finds out, with the help of a freshman boy, that Allison has sold her soul to the devil, who is masquerading as a--you guessed it--sophomore at Saint Teresa's.
Now, Jane's not one to believe in ridiculous things like devils. She jokingly enters into a contract with Lanalee to get Allison's soul back. However, strange things begin to happen: her history book bursts into flames, and her freshman friend, Owen, kills himself...and lives. Jane is forced to realize that her soul is in danger. And now the only way she can reclaim it is if she gets a kiss from her ex-boyfriend, Elton, by midnight at the very mysterious Poodle Prom.
DEVILISH is fast-paced and slight out there at times, but I loved reading it. Jane, with her wit and semi-acerbic commentary on everything, makes for a wonderful protagonist. I found myself laughing out loud many times. Anyone who has enjoyed Maureen Johnson's previous books or anyone who loves a fast and wacky read will not regret reading DEVILISH.
