Demonic Dora by Claire Chilton

Title - Demonic Dora
Author - Claire Chilton
Genre - Paranormal, Young Adult, Humour, Wiccan
Source - NetGalley
UK Release Date - 30th June 2013
Synopsis - She's finally managed to summon her first demon...
Dora Carridine is trying to summon a demon, but she's not very good at Latin and nothing ever works out the way she plans.
Her life is fraught with weekly exorcisms and having to watch her father’s fire and brimstone TV show every Sunday. So, when Dora finally succeeds in summoning an incompetent demon lord, she’s absolutely delighted when all hell breaks loose.
She thought summoning a sexy demon lord would be the answer to all of her problems, but her problems are only just beginning when her zealot parents try to burn her at the stake, and Dora is left with only one option—to escape and follow her demon straight into Hell.
I have never met a character like Dora. She is all types of crazy. Attitude problems, punk-ass-crazy, sassy. I loved her. 
I didn't always understand where she was coming from but she always entertained. The mouth on her...
The plot itself was pretty much the same. One thing I found really hard to comprehend was her lack of fear when summoning a Demon or even travelling to Hell. Absolutely fearless. You definitely can't take this book too seriously. 
And I adored Pooey. He's just a hilarious little ninja. I really think he made the book for me. As for the rest of the characters... I liked them. But I can't honestly say I always understood where they were coming from half the time. 
This was a great fun read. I'd recommend it to all young readers.
4/5 for Demonic Dora. I'll definitely look out for Book 2.
