Review:The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Review of the Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Publisher's Summary:
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.

Best. Book. This. Year.

From the first page, The Summoning sucks you in, only to let you go at the end wishing that the next book was published already.

Ms. Armstrong's writing is very detailed. She keeps the story moving and maintains an easy to follow plot.

Chloe is our main character. She's entertaining and interesting. and well..... You know when you like a book better because you feel like you are the main character. Well, that would be this. Chloe is me in almost every aspect, with a different name. And she can see ghosts........I can't do that. Yet. :) I'll let you all know when I can.

Okay, so it's a good book, but why are you like it's the best book this year?

Excellent Question. Us reviewers just get that feeling, when somethings just that good. Yes, I'm about to make that comparision. Think Twilight before it was Twilight. For those of you who read Twilight and got that "OMG, this is going to be so big!" feeling, that would be this feeling. Checking in at 400 Pages-The Summoning has everything needed to be the book of the summer.

So in Conclusion:Don't be surprised when this is HUGE. I reccomend it to every single one of my readers. Even if you hate scary- you will love this book

The Summoning is released July 1st
