The Luminaries by Susan Dennard

In this intriguing first book in a YA fantasy series, sixteen year old Winnie, who has wanted to be a Luminary hunter, hunting and killing the nightmares that plague the forest of her town of Hemlock Falls, must face the monsters as well as the people who have rejected her and her family since her father was exposed as a witch four years ago causing her family to be shunned.  Together with Jay, hot guy, bass player, hunter and an old friend, she sets out to make her dream of being a hunter come true.  However, she encounters more than she had bargained for.  This is a good book and I look forward to the next one in the series.
