 Mia's ordinary life is disrupted in the most horrifying way possible when she is possessed by a hungry and powerful demon--and only saved by the arrival of relatives from Italy, the country her grandfather fled many decades ago. Now her cousins Emilio and Giuliano say the only way to keep her safe is for her to come back with them to Milan, to live, to learn Italian, to fall in and out of love, and to master the family trade: fighting all demons with the lore of bell, book, and candle. Milan is not what Mia expected, but it will change her forever, in this stunningly well-written novel about an American girl who, fleeing an ancient evil, finds her only salvation in her ancestral home.

Mia, the main character, is just you'r average American teenager.

When something happens to Mia in the beginning of the book and she is sent to live with her relatives in Italy.

I liked the dark and creepy aspect of the book. But I found myself getting lost a lot of the time while reading the book. One minute I was into the story then I had no clue what was happening. The ending felt unfinished to me, I did not like that. 

The crush on her cousin was a little weird, more than a little, a lot weird. 

Thanks to Egmont USA and NetGalley for this eARC!
