The Nightmare Dilemma by Mindee Arnett

Girly, badass, and full of trouble!
 (sequel to The Nightmare Affair)
Dusty and Eli are back! Be prepared for more mystery and more whodunnit fun! Tensions are rising in Arkwell Academy with the magical restrictions being gone, and a student found assaulted with fingers pointing every which way. Telling apart friend and foe becomes difficult, and magic kind starts taking sides against each other. Drama arises for our duo when they find out Dusty's ex is being released and is returning to the Academy.

While the book was fun and the mystery good, we sisters cannot help but have raised eyebrows (and not in a good way) at the part where the adults entrusted the super secret, ultra-important mission to the teenaged girl. “It’s all on you now. We can’t trust anybody else, young teenaged girl with impulse control issues.”

Not to mention the super cliched cop-out that Arnett pulled near the end. It made one of us want to vomit, it made the other want to put a bullet in one's head, it made both of us want to punch someone in the face...the point is it was terrible. It was a PUH-LEASSSE moment and we can't help but wonder why, oh why, Arnett does this to her poor readers.This hexy twist lowered our ratings. 
(P.S. It's getting harder to forgive you of these cruelities. *sniff*)
