(Review) The Awakening by Marley Gibson

Ghost Huntress: The Awakening by Marley Gibson
Review by: Lauren
Site: http://www.ghosthuntress.com/home.htm

Kendall never really thought much about ghosts and spirits inhabiting our world after they die...that is until she moves to Radisson, Georgia and is confronted by one in her own home. Living in a town full of ghost tales leads Kendall to discovering just what exactly is happening to her and her senses. An adult, Loreen, teaches her the basics and offers her help, but it's some peers that lend the most to Kendall as the psychic in her awakens: Celia, the nerd of the school, who knows all about technology and Taylor, a cute and preppy girl who is a whiz behind a camera.

During her first year in Radisson, Kendall discovers ghosts in her house and at her dad's work...though one might be a bit more trouble than the other, starts her own ghost hunting team, and begins to fall for Taylor's twin brother, Jason with the pretty blue eyes.

Overall, the first Ghost Huntress book was a ton of fun. As someone who watches some of the ghost hunting shows on TV, it was great to see a book that deals with the same (and makes it easy for everyone to understand). I love books that are a series because it's often hard to let characters go, but I also know that it's hard to keep up with them and you might only read the first one. However, when it comes to this new batch of books, I'm most definitely going to read the next one. I have to know more and I'm sure others will feel the same!

I loved the Breakfast Club, so two competition entries for you!

But what was the second film you were talking about cos I think you said Breakfast Club again for that by mistake cos I'm pretty sure those characters weren't in it, lol!

I've always loved ghosts and ghost stories. Thankfully I've never met one! I may just have to try this though, it sounds really neat!
