City of Bones - Cassandra Clare

reading this one for my teens.  not really enjoying it (some of that is made worse by having watching the movie and being aware of the love pentacle).

 

but seriously, her best friend simon (aka "nice guy love interest") is a jerk.  he's kind of 'nice guying' her... when he's just not flat out being a dick.

 

can i count this as YA Horror?  it's not a horror book, but it's kind of horrifying to me.
