Two different YA's for two different types of readers!
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (Dark Powers Book 1)
Chloe Saunders is a quiet and smart high school girl being raised by her aunt and nannies while her father is abroad. She lost her mother as a young girl. She has had experiences in the past of seeing the dead and now, at school, there is a dead and mangled janitor chasing her. Chloe freaks out and is sent to a "residential home" to get better. While there, Chloe's powers seem to heat up and she meets more kids with paranormal powers.
This was a great read. Fast paced and exciting. I can'[t wait to read books 2 and 3. This will be great for some of my older Twilight loving readers.
43 Old Cemetery Road: Dying to Meet You (Book 1) by Kate Klise, Illustrated by M. Sarah Klise
Such a fun book!! Ignatius Grumpley is an old children's book author who hasn't had a hit in decades. He is paid to complete one more book in his popular old series and rents an Old Victorian house in Ghastly, Illinois hoping to beat his writer's block. But once the contract has been signed, Old Iggy soon find outs out the house is already inhabited by a young boy named Seymour, his cat, and a 190 year old ghost named Olive.
This book is written in letter format and has great illustrations, It was a lot of fun and I think some of my reluctant readers will enjoy it.
