This book camp that I'm at this week is having Kelley Armstrong as the last speaker and I'm really excited to meet her! I read her first book, The Summoning, in preparation.
The Summoning is about Chloe Saunders, a fifteen year old girl in an art school who lost her mother and adores movies. When Chloe starts seeing ghosts, her dad and aunt take her to Lyle House, a group home for mentally ill teenagers. But Chloe starts to think the patients aren't what they seem...
This book was very well done. I adored the writing, the characters and though it took a while for the suspense to start, when it did, I was sucked in. I loved the fantastical aspect and mental illness has always really interested me. Ms. Armstrong always kept me guessing. I would have this idea of a person, then it would change, and then go back again. The Summoning is more of an introduction book then anything else, but I thought it fit.
