Flashback Monday: The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

To Goodreads

My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.

All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don’t even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost – and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won’t leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a “special home” for troubled teens. Yet the home isn’t what it seems. Don’t tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? It’s up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House… before its skeletons come back to haunt me.


I read this book like over ten years ago. I think I read two pages then put it down. It was so, so creepy. It takes “I see dead people” to a whole new level.

Chloe sees ghosts, but everyone else thinks she’s having a mental breakdown, so she gets sent to Lyle House, a “special” house for troubled teens.

Lyle House is nuts and things are definitely not what they seem, from the staff to the patients, everybody’s got an agenda.

This book has some pretty intense/creepy moments, so I think it’s a perfect book to read leading up to Halloween!
