As a child, Angelina spent years in counseling learning that Josie, her imaginary friend, wasn't real, but it turns out her childhood friend wasn't imaginary after all.Now Angelina has to accept she's either (A) crazy or (B) able to see ghosts. Wanting to believe in her sanity, she chooses (B) and welcomes Josie back into her life. But even Josie can't help her deal with Shelly, the spirit of a confused teenager, and things go very, very wrong.When Angelina finds herself in a psychiatric hospital, she faces a choice: she can spend the rest of her life pretending to be someone she isn't, or she can embrace who she is and take a chance that she may never get to go home.
BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :
Angelina gets premonitions. She has dreams. Unfortunately a cheerleading routine winds her in hot water and she ends up in a mental hospital.
Angelina sees ghosts. Her imaginary friend from her childhood, Josie ,has resurfaced and this sets of more ghosts finding their way into Angelina’s path. Rosie was handy, she knew what was good off the menu...lol!!
On a more serious note, I could not stand Patty, Angelina’s mum. I thought her behaviour to be too excessive and down right unsupportive, to the extent her daughter was hospitalised. I thought Patty thought more about herself than her daughter.
Dr Bowman I found a little annoying as well. She convinced Patty to not believe in her daughter.
I liked Kobi and the forming of their friendship under unusual circumstances.
Josie was cute with her misunderstanding of the modern day lingo. If Josie had stayed out of Angelina’s life, then she may have continued with her mantra ‘Josies not real’, like she was taught when she was a little girl. It may have saved her a whole lot of tears.
So what if you believe in ghosts or you see them. John Edwards is not in a mental facility. People pay to see him and hear what he has to say. I think Patty’s own fears made a whole lot of mess for Angelina.
I loved Sam. He knew his sister wasn’t crazy. He was even willing to find a reason for what she saw. I loved he was open minded.
I did enjoy this book , no matter how angry I got with Patty. I think it has to do with being a mum, and believing I will support whatever my kids tell me. I thought it was a great ending to this story.
