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 devoured this book. It was good and I just kept wanting to read.

The story development was good and I liked learning about Chloe’s powers when she did, it just added to the story. It made me feel like I was more a part of it then just a reader.

The character development was good. Chloe starts off by being this annoying baby character to someone who takes no crap. And that’s what her character needed otherwise I was going to start hating on her.

The character relationships that develop throughout the book are good and I was surprised about a few things. The ‘OMG’ moments that you should just see coming and I didn’t.

Overall, this was a quick book and very enjoyable but damn that cliffhanger.
