Summary from GoodReads:
Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls Novel)
Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams,  Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.”  Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either.  Or does she?  They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason.  As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas.  Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.  Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…
My Thoughts:

I abso-FREAKING-lutely  LOVED this book!! From the first chapter I was hooked, literally I couldn't put the book down! 
Kylie is your "normal" teenager, dealing with normal teenager things. Her boyfriend Trey and her broke up, her parents are getting a divorce, and her best friend is changing right before her eyes. Then you enter the fact that Kylie has a stalker; though her stalker is a ghost that only she can see!  
Kylie ends up at a party with her friend Sara, and while there she spots her ex Trey with another girl; that in itself is heartbreaking to anyone. Long story short, the party gets busted up by the cops and all the kids that didn't run end up in jail ( Kylie included). After her mom shows up ( even though she called her dad), Kylie finds out that her mom is going to send her to a camp for kids with "problems". After getting on the bus to the camp, Kylie starts to notice that everyone is a little strange.
After Kylie arrives at the camp, she starts getting weird looks and it really freaks her out. When she learns that she is at a camp for Supernatural teens and that she is surrounded by shapeshifters, vampires, werewolves, witches and all sort of Fae; she realistically freaks out. She doesn't believe that she belongs at the camp and trys to come up with ways to get out. Understandably she doesn't believe that she is special like the rest of the campers and is determined not to admit that she has a gift. 
There is of course the love triangle with Kylie, Derek( who is half fae), Lucas; whom used to live next door to her when they were younger and is also a werewolf.  
There are some great parts to the book, and I feel as though I could write for hours about it, but I don't want to spoil anymore than I already have!!! 
I can't wait for Awake at Dawn, the next book in the series to come out!!! And i will be heading to my bookstore this weekend to pick up my own copy of Born at Midnight, because this is one book that REALLY needs to be on my bookshelf:) 
And check out how hot Derek and Lucas are:
