A Spooky Read

Paige's life is turned upside down when her mother makes them move from California to Idaho. Her wanted a new life away from her ex husband. Paige isn't happy with this move at all. She's stuck in an old house with lots of nasty spiders and flies.

As this is a horror novel, weird things begin to happen. There's a buzzing noise in her little bother's room. There also a guy she meets along the way who helps her out and then she ends up killing him. It's so painfully obvious that the house is haunted and her mother doesn't age. She's one of those new age types. Her mother thinks they have the same right to live there too.

Paige doesn't like it. She feels something is wrong and the closer she gets to the truth, she sees that that she was right. They weren't friendly spirits but what she doesn't know is that it's far worse than she could ever imagine.

I actually liked this book, it was spooky and even had me looking over my shoulder a few times. I will say I think it was silly to make the only guy in this story around Paige's age gay. I mean I get that the author wanted no romance in this book but still. Straight guys and girls can be friends. It happens.

I will say that I totally saw the ending coming and it's wasn't much of a surprise but none the less I enjoyed this spooky read.
