The Summoning (Darkest Powers #1) by Kelley Armstrong


My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.

All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost - and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? it's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House...before its skeletons come back to haunt me.

My Thoughts:

Creepy yet amazing! For 13+ readers but I definitely wouldn't recommend this book to anyone under the age of 13 that is terrified of ghosts and things that go bump in the night. Though it's not a scary book, it did give me chills. Overall the book was amazing, well written, and thoroughly edited.

Chloe Saunders finds herself in a group home for troubled teens. Everything seems to be normal but really...things are what they seem. Who are the other kids that are in the home, and why are they in there? And the ghost in the basement will not leave her alone until she discovers all those dark hidden secrets.
