Darkwater by Catherine Fisher*

Darkwater is about Sarah, girl who has lived for over 100 years. Here family's pride has always gotten in the way. To save her father, she must repent. At only 16 years old, she made a deal with an evil being who has existed since the beginning of time. But there's a catch--she has to apologize to him for all of her family's prideful boasts (sometime in the next 100 years). When she starts her apologies, she meets a boy who almost makes her same mistake. He tries to make a deal with the evil being. Can she save Tom from making the same mistake she had made?

This book wasn't good, it wasn't good at all. The books that I've read over the past few days have horribly under-developed plots. At least this book was a super short read. The author needs to build upon Sarah's grandfather losing the house because that's what is interesting about this story. It was not a good read for me, but I hope it is for you.
