Bright teeth flashed; I fought the instinct to recoil. Perfectly white, perfectly even, possibly once human. Coral pink lips pulled back all the way to the gums, giving the smile an unfortunate equine quality. “Soooo . . . ?” The owner of the teeth and lips drew out the word and flipped it up at the end in a question. “What’s your major?”

“English.” An untruth. I don’t tell them, as a rule, but I’d been asked this question five times in the last hour, and the lie rolled off my tongue now with ease.

“Gosh, you must have to read a lot, huh?” Another blinding smile; I hoped my squint passed for an answer. “So, Maggie. What made you decide to go through Rush?”

She pronounced it with a capital R. Five rounds of the cattle call officially known as Sorority Formal Recruitment had run together in my banality-numbed brain, and I couldn’t remember where I was. I glanced around the crowded room for a clue. The noise was formidable, the chatter of a hundred or more coiffed and groomed girls like purebred dogs at a show, their yelping echoing from the walls.

Just like every other sorority house I’d been to in this first series of parties. Here, though, the décor was Cotton Candy Pink and Tampax Box Blue. Verily, I had reached the lair of the Delta Delta Gammas.

“Well, Ashley . . .” My slightly breathless drawl mim- icked hers. “I thought Rush would be fun. Get to know people, you know.”

She laughed, her eyes squinched up in two half-moons of insincerity. “Soooo? Which dorm are you in, Maggie?”

She kept checking my name tag. At every house, the girls had used my name exhaustively, making me feel as though I’d wandered onto a used car lot.

“I’m living at home.” This much was certainly true. “I grew up here in Avalon.”

“Oh.” Her smile, and I use the word loosely, was forced. “Well, at least you know your way around. You probably have a car, too. What kind is it?”

Her segues could really use a little polish. “It’s vintage.”

“Oh, really?” She raised her brows with renewed interest.

“Yeah. A Ford Pinto.”

“Really.” Beneath her carefully applied self-tanner, the corners of her mouth were white with strain. “Your parents live here in Avalon?”

It would be hard to live at home and go to school here if they didn’t. But smart-ass wasn’t my persona here at the International House of Snobcakes, so I merely answered enthusiastically, “My dad works here at Bedivere University. He’s an engineer.”

“Is he really? Mechanical or civil?”

“Custodial.”

“O-kay.” She glanced at her watch, then searched the room for rescue, or maybe just an avenue of escape. “Well, it’s been real nice meeting you, Maggie. I need to go . . . um . . . talk to these girls over here.”

She took off; I knew from my research that leaving a rushee standing alone was a big fat no-no. Unless, of course, you’d rather invite a chimpanzee to join your sisterhood. And no one in the Delta Delta Gamma house looked like Jane Goodall to me.

But since I’d been deserted, I reached into my purse and turned off my microrecorder. No sense in wasting megabytes.

Format: Hardcover
Maggie wants to be a reporter for the college newspaper. When the professor turns her down because she's just a lowly freshman, she goes undercover for a behind-the-scenes look at sororities and Rush.

Soon, she's making friends and enemies among the other pledges and asking questions that could seem suspicious. When Maggie finally decides on one house, she comes to realize that there's more to the sisterhood than meets the eye.

When the leaders of the sorority make it clear that they like her power, Maggie realizes that there's something supernatural going on behind closed doors. Maggie's curiosity leads her into trouble time and time again, especially now that there are secrets spilling.

Can Maggie figure out what's going on and stop it before people get hurt, or will her undercover act be blown wide open?

HELL WEEK picks up shortly after PROM DATES FROM HELL. Maggie gets her Nancy Drew on and the suspense adds great tension to the novel. Add in a dash of romance and it's the perfect teen book.

Another awesome adventure of Maggie Quinn, a girl with a special talent for sensing evil. Maggie is now a freshman in college and looking to score herself a spot on the newspaper. She decides to write a series of exposes on what really goes down when you pledge a sorority. But, of course, she discovers a sinister plot brewing at the Sigma Alpha Xi house so she pledges them and tries to find out what kind of evil they are stirring up. This book is a bit more serious than the last- people die and Maggie finds herself in more mature situations, but her wit and humor still take center stage. I love this series of books and recommend it to pretty much any girl 14 and older, especially those who like the paranormal and mysteries.

In HELL WEEK, the second book in Ms. Clement-Moore's Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil series, Maggie's now a freshman at Bedivere University and doing her best to get a job on the school paper, The Ranger Report, even though they don't usually allow freshman on the paper. Hence, The Phantom Pledge is born. The sorority rush isn't her biggest problem, yet, it seems her sight is gaining in strength as she's getting visions while wide awake. Now she's being recruited by the SAXis', a bit of a mysterious sorority on campus, if she pledges, she could get her biggest story so far, that is, if her cover as the Phantom Pledge isn't blown...

HELL WEEK is a great follow up to Prom Dates From Hell. Maggie is still the same enjoyable character, still dealing with accepting her newfound abilities and struggling to deal with the latest addition as well, the visions that aren't just sticking to dreams anymore. Things at school are going well, except for the fact she's pledged herself into a sorority that if she wasn't the Phantom Pledge, wouldn't have been her first choice. But there's something odd, almost - about the SAXis' and Maggie's determined to get to the bottom of it, even if it means bringing a whole new definition to `Hell Week'. Maggie's a really great character, with a Buffy-like wit that makes her fun to follow as she tries to unravel the mystery that is the SAXis and keep up with her schoolwork as her social life goes on an unexpected upturn, Justin might even have a little competition in the potential boyfriend department.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hell Week is an excellent sequel to Prom Dates from Hell. Heroine Maggie Quinn has graduated high school and moved on to college. She's trying to navigate the social maze of college and explore her psychic abilities while keeping the world safe from evil.

Hoping to score a spot on the college newspaper, Maggie goes undercover for sorority rush. It's just for a series of articles at first, and she has no intention of actually pledging a sorority, but when she starts to believe there's something very strange going on at one of the houses, she decides to continue her charade as a pledge.

Hell Week is a bit darker than its predecessor, but it has all the humor that made the first book so enjoyable. The stakes are a bit higher this time. Maggie is learning once again just how dangerous the world of demons and evil can be. She's got some personal issues as well. She's living at home so she can be near her parents, who are unexpectedly expecting another child. And Justin, her love interest from the last book, has been gone for the summer and now that he's back, he seems uninterested in picking up where they left off.

Maggie is a smart, funny, likable heroine, and Hell Week is an engaging, fast-paced read. I highly recommend it. You may want to read Prom Dates from Hell first, but it's not strictly necessary.

This is the first book in the series I have read although it's book #2 in the story. I saw it several times, but never got it because it's a hard-cover and I didn't know if I'd like it. (My copy came from the library)
This is one of the best books I've read in a long time, while compared to "Buffy", I thought it was more like Veronica Mars fights demons.
Maggie is a reporter in her first year of college and looking for someone to give her an anonymous column on the expose of sorority life from the inside, and therefore must go undercover to get the dirt. She also happens to have some psychic powers, which draws a particularly dangerous sorority to her, and she needs to survive long enough to expose the ridiculousness of it all. Helping her is her "almost" boyfriend and her best friend who is away at college in another state learning witchcraft.
Very well written, comparisons are modern but not trying to hard.
Highly recommended. I'll edit this and write a better review soon.
