bookshelves: dnf-award, gag-worthy-book

Damage has an amazing premise but fails to deliver with one-dimensional characters and clichéd situations.

Dani lives in fear that Rachel, her invisible friend she invented when she was eight will appear again and kill her. As long as she keeps her emotions in control, she should be okay. Now as a teenager she barely reacts to anything that is until the bus she’s riding on is hit by a truck and everyone board is killed. She’s saved by Jesse, a fellow student also on the bus who survives and was also a victim of an imaginary being that stalked him as a child. Now on the run because of the invisible forces that once harassed them are back, they have nowhere to turn for help. As they get closer to the truth about their situations, the find out they were subjects of a scientific experiment gone wrong.

Damage should have been an on the edge of the seat thriller that leaves the reader breathless with anticipation. Instead it fails to excite and will have readers turning elsewhere for something better.

Half way through I gave up and DNFed this very "meh" book.
