The Seventh

I felt bad for Mimi because I know what it’s like to be an outcast and have people judge you, even when they don’t truly know you. In Mimi’s case her situation is ghosts, as in she sees them. Since she was thirteen she has collected ghosts and she currently has three with her. She’s been transferred to a new school and realizes that she’s not a freak, she’s just special. Not only that but she’s the seventh person and completes the circle, hence the title of the book.

I was so proud of her and it was so great to see her bloom, her little attraction to Drew was just adorable and it was made better because they were each other’s first. Not only that but she gets some cool friends too. I think it’s interesting and maybe a little scary to do the things they do, who wouldn’t want to control animals, see the future, conjure things out of thin air, feel people’s emotions, be the protector, and heal someone? Every person in the group has a purpose and as a whole, when they work together they can do some amazing things.

I’m hoping that this will be an ongoing series, it was an easy read and I finished it in a couple hours. It had mystery, terror and romance all thrown in and made a nice read.

Book Blurb for The Seventh

Sixteen year old Mimi Alston has company. No less than three ghosts follow her around, and only she can see them. At her last school, she was known as the girl with imaginary friends. Now Mimi’s starting fresh in a new town, where she’s determined to make some real friends and fit in for once. She’s ready for a normal life...except Mimi never counted on her fascination with troubled goth-boy, Drew.

When she’s invited to join the elite Gifted Program, Mimi discovers she’s not the only one at the school with an unusual talent. Maybe being normal isn’t even an option anymore.
