The Summoning

My First Book for the R.I.P. Book Challenge

Drum Roll Please........

The Summoning
by Kelley Armstrong
July 2008
Young Adult

Chloe Saunders just had a really bad day. On her way to class she suddenly develops the ability to see and hear dead people. After one ghost chases her through the halls she freaks out. She is sedated, sent to a hospital, and enrolled in a group home for troubled teens.
Soon Chloe realizes that nothing is as it seems at the Lyle House, where the dead continue to try to speak to her and her room mates have special talents of their own.
But as her housemates each reveal the powers they possess(Super strength, spell casting, starting fires and moving things) Chloe must figure out who she can trust and who has an agenda of their own.
This fast paced thriller is filled with horror, suspense, mystery, conspiracy and a little romance.
The paranormal plot kept me turning the pages as quickly as possible and the little twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat.
The book leaves the door wide open for the sequel called The Awakening which I will definitely read.
I recommend this book for readers 12 and up. This book is not available at the Salmon Public Library but I would be more than happy to get it for you through an Inter Library Loan.
