Rachel Hawkin's Rebel Belle
Harper Price is the perfect student, the perfect daughter, the perfect girlfriend. She has everything planned out and is in complete control. Until a regular trip to the bathroom turns fatal--her school janitor has been stabbed and before he bleeds to death on her he manages to strangely kiss her and the teacher who stabbed the janitor goes after Harper but she manages to defend herself with inhuman strength she didn't have before. Harper has no idea what is going on and when she discovers she's been given super powers to protect her one "enemy" in the whole school, she officially loses control of her life. Harper is a Paladin now and sworn to protect the Oracle, even if he's been annoying her since kindergarten.

Rebel Belle reminded me so much of Buffy--the reluctant chosen one who is just as concerned about what to wear to prom as much as getting out of it alive. Harper is funny and interesting and Rebel Belle is great for readers who want an apocalypse story without a big apocalypse. Just like Buffy saved the world a lot without most people ever knowing, Harper has to do the same all while perfecting her walk for the Cotillion.
