PS. Read her 2 other books too. Fun will ensue.
Four young adults are gathered by a pseudo-government official to explore the merits of paranormal gifts and their practical uses. They are to live together for a month as experiments are conducted that might better define their gifts and perhaps discover practical applications of those gifts. At least, that is the idea. In reality, the house is haunted--meaning, the house, itself, is haunted--even as it hosts haunts that make themselves known in one fashion or another to Jess and Allison, who see ghosts and demons where others do not. Two young girls were killed on the grounds, and they haunt the home along with Riley, their murderer. The four young people gathered to conduct experiments soon find they must apply their skills if they want to live, and they have to figure out how to do this even as their supervisor seems to be deteriorating from his original position and advancing into the same strange attitude that the house seems to eventually share with all its tenants, except, perhaps, Mrs. Hirsch.
A good book for young adults, with good paranormal action and some romance, for the more experienced reader, the actions don't flow as smoothly as one would want, often with simple words trying to explain complicated actions, and vice versa. The author also seems to assume that the reader will understand that there are elements at work that should be scary and assumes an understanding of the frightening experiences. For instance, Jess practices each day in the music room and everyone understands this--but, after what should really be a couple days (considering they are intending to be in the home for just one month), the author seems to imply that Jess' actions are traditional and expected such as when a person has adopted a routine over several weeks or months. The time frames for the thoughts and actions just don't seem to add up, but unless you are paying attention, this is not detrimental to the story.
A good story for young adults in the paranormal genre, it is setting itself up for a good sequel. Perhaps with the experience provided through this first writing, the sequel will be something that experienced readers might enjoy as much as the younger reader.
