Review: The Summoning - By Kelly Armstrong


Summary
After years of frequent moves following her mother’s death, Chloe Saunders’s life is finally settling down. She is attending art school, pursuing her dreams of becoming a director, making friends, meeting boys. Her biggest concern is that she’s not developing as fast as her friends are. But when puberty does hit, it brings more than hormone surges. Chloe starts seeing ghosts–everywhere, demanding her attention. After she suffers a breakdown, her devoted aunt Lauren gets her into a highly recommended group home.

At first, Lyle House seems a pretty okay place, except for Chloe’s small problem of fearing she might be facing a lifetime of mental illness. But as she gradually gets to know the other kids at the home–charming Simon and his ominous, unsmiling brother Derek, obnoxious Tori, and Rae, who has a “thing” for fire–Chloe begins to realize that there is something that binds them all together, and it isn’t your usual “problem kid” behaviour. And together they discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home either…

Review
I was back and forth with this book. There were parts I really liked and parts I didn't like so much. The story itself had it's thrills and mystery that definitely kept me guessing most of the way through. Some of the revelations at the end... Yup never saw them coming! That's always a good thing when your reading a book... We readers wanna be surprised! I sure was. As for the characters... I'm still waiting for Chloe to impress me. I'm sensing a possible love triangle coming up (perhaps in the next books) although I do wish it had made itself present a little more in this one. That might have boosted my rating a bit. I'm not so sure about Simon and Derek though. I usually picture my love interests as cute guys that shower you with sweet words. Not some big creepy dude with pimples and BO problems : / Yeah..... Besides that... Four stars from me... I really enjoyed this book. Might have to read the next one. It's a little closer to the top of my "to read" pile now. I'll get to it. Eventually : )
