My favorite people (a.k.a. Our Readers),
Hello there, loves! This week has been a crazy one for me, watching a house, four dogs, and my grandparents each day. I'm definitely not complaining though; we've been having a fun time! However, I can't concentrate enough to read. Anybody else have this problem? I've been writer's blocked (only for my fiction) for so long, and now reading (for fun) is getting a bit difficult to focus on. Weirdness, right??? If you feel/have ever felt the same way, please comment. It'd be nice to know that I'm not alone on this one.
Anywho, today's book is Damage by Anya Parrish.
Summary: "There was a time when I prayed for Rachel to be real--it ended the night she tried to kill me.
When Dani was eight, she fell from a building. No one believed her claim that she was pushed by Rachel, her imaginary friend. It took years of therapy to convince Dani that Rachel was a product of her own mind. Now fifteen, Dani wants to make it as a dancer. But a deadly freak accident sends her a terrifying message: Rachel is back, she's real, and she'll stop at nothing to kill Dani. Complicating matters is Jesse, the school bad boy who's being stalked by his own invisible childhood monster. When Dani and Jesse join forces to learn why their tormenters are back, their investigation leads to a horrifying discovery--and the secret that binds them to each other."

This is one creepy book here. No lie. I never get creeped out, really, but just imagining "Rachel" is insanely creepy. You would not want to be Dani in this book. But this book is very imaginative and it's an idea that hasn't been put out there before, so even if you're easily creeped out, read it anyways. The mystery is a fun one, and the book has perfect pace! The characters are interesting as well, and the bits of their pasts were so fun to dive into and piece together when revealed; it helped me get to know the characters better.
In Conclusion: Go for it if you like weirdness! It's imaginative and fun!
