THE SUMMONING [Book 1] by Kelley Armstrong


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?

    Not so bad of a read. Defiantly a teen read, but it was ok. It took me awhile to really sit down and read it. Im not sure if it was due to my crazy life between Cos school and work... (I hate going to school there now, all the stress is going to kill me) But the last two days here I finally just grabbed it and read. I was pleasantly surprised at how the characters developed into their "powers". I think this book was more like a intro to the next. Like the real story is going to start now.. but we just had to read the prologue first.. so now Im off to start the "next chapter" in this story..
