This, apparently is the first in a new series from Derek Landy. I enjoyed the first of the Skulduggery Pleasant series, but this one is aimed for a bit older audience.
When Amber becomes 16, she realises why her parents haven't really been bothered with her for all her life. Until now, when she becomes interesting to them and their friends. And so starts a mad road trip across America with her new found minder, Milo, and Glen the annoying side-kick, trying to stay one step ahead of her parents.
Following the "Demon Road" Amber and the gang meet all sorts of unsavoury characters and usually have to fight it out.
This is quite a violent story and I don't think Amber has as many good one-liners as Stephanie in the Skulduggery Pleasant series. It was a good read, however and I did enjoy it.
