Publisher Description

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.

Quotes

  • “New York Times bestseller Armstrong turns her skill and focus toward a new teen-based supernatural trilogy. Readers are taken on an intense and scary ride. The story’s pace is brisk, but it is the feelings of alienation and betrayal that give this launch book its knife-like edge.”

    - RT Book Reviews
  • “Suspenseful, well-written, and engaging.” 

    - VOYA
  • “Terrifying ghosts, smatterings of gore, and diverse teen voices will prompt young adults to pick up the next in this series…Teen readers might scream loud enough to raise the dead.” 

    - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 
  • “This suspenseful novel sets up a secret underworld where some people support and help supernaturals, while others persecute them. Armstrong combines bits of horror, teen relationships, and a dash of mystery to create a page-turner. Readers will look forward to the next installment.

    " I was very pleasantly surprised by this book! I wasn't too sure about the first couple of chapters but it only got better from there on, and by the end of the third chapter I was completely sucked in. I really liked the plot, setting and general "feel" of the book, although I felt the characters could have been a little better developed. The narration is spot on and really adds to the whole listening experience. I would recommend this book to adults who enjoy reading young adult fiction, as well as to younger teens (although I have seen some people saying it might be too scary for some younger kids). "

About the Author

Kelley Armstrong is the author of young adult fiction, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and mysteries in stand-alone novels and over fifteen series.

She sucks at all of them. She has also crawled through very shallow cave systems and climbed half a mountain before chickening out.
