Having a “mental breakdown” is bad enough. Having one in high school is not good for one’s social life . Sadly the dead don’t care, and Chloe Saunders can see them. Chloe has an episode in school and is sent to a house for troubled teens. She’s told she can go home in two weeks as long as she follows the rules. The house for troubled teens isn’t what it seems to be, and the people that work there are keeping secrets. During her stay at the home she finds out that there’s a name for her ability to see the dead, and the kids in the house all seem to be supernaturally gifted as well.
The ending was suspenseful, I was basically holding my breath. There’s a cliffhanger, which is a good way of ensuring people go and read the second book. Great first book in the series.
