Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I needed books with a word that started with an "E" for the Monthly Mix-Up Mania 2013. I searched my library catalog and found this one.  I really liked this story.  Don't be put off because it's teen fiction. Kali is in a new school.  For three weeks she's alone.  Then one day someone talks to her.  She makes a friend and weird things start to happen!

For an excerpt, click here.
From the author's site:
Every other day, Kali D'Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies. She's human.

And then every day in between...She's something else entirely.

Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.

When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her and, unfortunately, she'll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive...and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.
