Keely Allison has spent years trying to prove that her home town of Pembleton Arizona is haunted. She's let her grades slip, upset her mother by avoiding anything remotely close to the normal high school experience, and utterly ignored a love life. She's the leader of two person paranormal society, along with her polar opposite Tad Buckley. Tad's an honors student, the apple of his folks' eyes and totally in love with Keely (he has been for years and he really, really, really thinks this will be the year he finally tells her just that). When Sean Cage moves to town everyone's life gets thrown into a violent upheaval. He joins the society, challenges their methods, becomes the first crush of Keely's life, and forces Tad into a put up or shut up position with his feelings for Keely. As the three find their paranormal and romantic lives suddenly in fast forward, they too find the already well documented spookiness of Pembleton Arizona doing the same. Sean finds sleep nearly impossible as he's taunted by a monstrous black mass at the foot of his bed. Tad is forced to choose between sneaking out the back door like the rest of the honors kids or going out the front and potentially facing hazing at the hands of a demon possessed jock-bully. As for Keely she just may find the proof she's always wanted so badly to find, the question is will she believe it when it's standing right in front of her?

When three teenagers embark to find out if the paranormal exists they have no idea what they are in for. So many twists take you and them on a real journey and it's a very good thought out story.
This book is clearly not written for me and is definitely more for the Young Adult audience which it would be absolutely ideal for but I did really like the story. It's nice to come back to a more easier read and this definitely fits that bill. The story flowed very well and I'd have no problem recommending this to the teenage market. I really loved the characters and couldn't wait to read the next book.
Volume 2 will be reviewed next week with a little extra ;-)
