YA short story. Magic, a really bad date, a neighborhood thug (with your family pressuring you to date said thug in the interest of the family business), and a pig. And it's great. The thing with shorts, they need to grab you by the first couple of paragraphs or its done. Loved every minute of this one - a strong heroine, that you are just thrown into the magic of this world, and a wonderful twist.I recently re-read this one and had to up the rating. The rare Ilona Andrews YA story and I loved it.
