The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Friday, July 10, 2009 Edit This 1 Comment »
I finished The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong almost a week ago, I just haven't had the time to post anything about it. This is my first time doing something like this, soo not so sure how it's gonna turn out! :)

From Kelley Armstrong's site:
Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for 'disturbed teens'. At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems...? Chloe realizes that if she doesn't uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse...? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

I would highly recommend reading this book. Especially if you're into teen paranormals. I honestly didn't want to put it down. If I didn't have to sleep, I wouldn't have. It wasn't just about a girl that found out one day she could see and communicate with the dead, it was about her finding out who she really was and what people have been trying to keep from her all her life. Along her way, she meets more "troubled" teenagers and uncovers horrible secrets.

I'm very excited to read the next book in the trilogy; The Awakening. Sadly the last one, The Reckoning, comes out sometime next year. :(
