"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."
I had seen this book everywhere but never read it because I thought it was about vampires, and I've had enough of them for now. Finally we went to Barnes and Noble one day and it was just there and I decided to read it, I'm glad I did lol :) I started reading this book and I was hooked on the first chapter. It was amazing! I loved the whole paranormal aspect of it. I really recommend that you guys read this if you haven't already.
It was kind of a mystery with a lot of paranormal creatures! They brought up a lot that I had heard about but forgot about with the vampires and werewolves being popular right now. That's one of things I liked about this book, that it wasn't just about vampires and werewolves. Another thing I liked is the heroine, Chloe. She made fun of those heroines that I don't like throughout the book and I found that really funny =] She also doesn't just wait for guys to do things for her, she stands up for herself and I like that.
There wasn't real a romance in this one but I think that she likes some guy and he likes her, but I don't know for sure :P This one was basically all adventure and it was really interesting. I really liked this book and I am dying to read the second book!
Live, Love, Laugh....Read!
