Angelina’s Secret by Lisa Rogers
Format: Paperback
Source: Personal Library

Summary: 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. – via GoodReads

What I Liked: I love reading books about people seeing ghosts and about ghosts. I thought Angelina was a very strong character. She was tired of pretending not to see the ghosts when she knew she was seeing them. Angelina was very tough and did what was necessary to prove that she wasn’t crazy to her family. I was very impressed with her strength and in the end all her hard work and strength paid off. Lisa has a way of pulling you into the book and into the character’s life. you felt everything Angelina felt as if you were her and you were going through the same thing. I love Rogers’s writing and I can’t wait to read more of her books.

What I Didn’t Like: I would have liked to learn more about the history of the house and if her mother saw ghosts when she was younger.

Recommended For: Any reader who likes a good ghost story.

Avoid If: You don’t like ghost stories.
