(A Young Adult Paranormal Thriller)
The Ghost Junkies: A Young Adult Paranormal Thriller by Elizabeth J. Rekab Scream, Blockbuster Video and an ouija board sure, do bring back memories. An escape like no other. Can Mel discover the truth of her abilities before the ghosts claim her as their own? Melissa Lowery is failing physics, shunned by the cheerleading squad, and crushing on her best friend, Aaron, who has an annoyingly beautiful girlfriend. Oh yeah, and she sees the ghost of her dead father. Talk about screwed up. Soon, a fellow ghost seer named Seth convinces Mel to test her abilities in a haunted cabin where he introduces her to a whole new world. Literally. He teaches Mel how to slip into the realm the ghosts come from—a vivid, euphoric place called "The Veil" that sure as hell beats Jaxonville. But when the living in town start going crazy and the dead whisper about a mysterious Shadow Man, Mel realizes that the Veil may hide more secrets than she realizes... secrets that she must uncover before the whole town is consumed by darkness. Set in 1997, The Ghost Junkies is a nostalgia-filled, paranormal thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. A coming-of-age story based around a young woman coming into her powers of seeing ghosts. I love it love it love it! What can I say except it is a well written story with achingly pleasant characters that are so relatable and fun. The friendship of Mel and Aaron is strong and full of trust. The idea for the story was fresh and enticing. The thought of seeing ghosts is quiet chilling. It was easy and fast paced with a twist at the end. It was a superbly entertaining read. Multiple 5 stars. She has turned into my newest favorite author. I will be buying all her books no matter what they are about.
