Radical Readalong: Hallowed Discussion Day 4

**Spoilers up to Chapter 16**

Prom was definitely interesting...Christian and Tucker argued with one another until Clara stepped in and reminded them it was her choice about who she would dance with. 

  "Before I moved here, I never got the whole love-triangle thing. You know, in movies or romance novels or whatnot, where there's one chick that all the guys are drooling over, even though you can't see anything particularly special about her. But oh, no, they both must have her. And she's like, oh dear, however will I choose? William is so sensitive, he understands me, he swept me off my feet, oh misery, blubber, blubber, but how can I go on living without Rafe and his devil-may-care ways and his dark and only-a-little-abusive love? Upchuck. So unrealistic, I always thought. 
  Joke's on me, I guess." - page 167

Clara had to fight off Samjeeza again, and luckily Mr. Phibbs came to assist. Then they had a close call at the school when Samjeeza shows up in the form of a dog and Jeffrey almost takes him home...yikes!

Finally, Clara's mom revealed something she's been keeping from the kids--their dad is an angel. Whoa! Yet another plot twist that I didn't see coming. And that means that Clara and Jeffrey are actually Triplare, three-quarters angel. 

  "It gets quiet while Jeffrey and I try to absorb this news. Triplare. Three-quarter angel. Not Quartarius, after all. And there's something Dad said that burns like a live coal in my mind. 
  More angel than human." - page 205

I can't wait to find out what other plot twists are awaiting us in the final chapters!
