Chloe Saunders had a normal life . Until she starts seeing ghosts. she goes to the Lyle house which isn't all what it seems. With the help of her new friends and her enemies she finds out she is a necromancer. Her alies vary from werewolves to witches. When they make an escape they go for help. Someone secretly betrays them now they don't know who to trust... Gory and a tiny bit creepy makes you want more. I'm probably younger than most people who read this but it ends on a cliff hanger.

This entire series is AMAZING! I'll admit, I was a bit confused in the beginning, but just stick with it. The series just gets better.

Following the worst five beginning chapters I ever read, a thrilling mystery unraveled. I'm glad I pressed on through the beginning. The ending was a little more like the end of an episode than the end of a novel, but I really got attached to the characters and am excited to see what's going to happen.

Best book ever!!! I love Chloe and Derek!!!!!!

Awesome read! I love Chloe and Derek they are awesome!!

I loved this book. My favorite series of all time! The characters are very different and interesting, as well as the story. If you are a ''vampire lover'', well, i'm warning you: there are absolutely no vampires in this book.

Just finished reading this and it was hard to put down. Took me two days and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. It has a different take on the 'I see dead people' story lines in other books. I really like the characters - especially Chloe and Derek. Great plot and twists.

Chloe Saunders sees dead people. At 15 chloe only wants to fit in and enjoy high school maybe find love somewhere but after a ghost starts haunting her crazy behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for disturbed teens.

Its the best book ever. That's all you need to know.

Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for disturbed teens.

At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems…? Chloe realizes that if she doesn’t uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse…? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

Chloe Saunders is your average teenage girl. She lives in Buffalo, with her aunt and attends an art school. She spends time with her friends, talks to boys, that kind of thing. Then she meets a ghost. This ghost is terrifying and grotesque. The interaction sends her into a breakdown, which gets her sent to a group home, Lyle House.

Lyle House is for mentally-ill teens who must work through their problems, or at least that is what it is advertised to be. Bizarre situations are occurring at this house, not only with herself, but also with other residents of the house. And no matter how much she tries not to believe it, Chloe sees more ghosts. Through strange events, the secrets everyone is hiding spills out, connections are made, and soon nothing is as it was thought to be. But with secrets.... there are always people who want to keep them quiet.

Derek: "Sure. Go ahead. Take it easy. I'm sure Dad will walk in that door any minute and rescue us. And if he's in trouble? If he needs help? Well, too bad, 'cause that would require effort and you're too busy...chilling."

If I was crazy, I'd be doing more than seeing and hearing people who weren't there. I'd be acting crazy, and I wasn't.
Was I?
