The Summoning Review

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 read this a long time ago but I thought I'd do a review on it anyway. I remember I wasn't sure if I'd like this series, but I bought this book (#1) and the 2nd one at the same time. As soon as I started reading the first page of this book, I was immediately drawn in and i couldn't stop reading it! I finished it in two days, it is one of the best books in this genre I have ever read! Chloe is an awesome character and very relate-able. She gets sent to this house for troubled kids, even though it's actually for "special" kids with powers and special abilities. Her two best friends end up being 2 brothers, and they find a way to escape Lyle House. It's at the Lyle House where Chloe first discovers her real abilities, not just being able to see ghosts. Right away in the first chapter things start happening. There are a couple slow parts but none that make you want to fall asleep because they drag out so long. I devoured this book and had to read the 2nd one as soon as I finished this one!
