Alexis is a typical loner, who lives in a creepy, old home, with her mother, father and thirteen year old sister Kasey. She loves to take photographs and develop them in her very own dark room. When she takes a picture of her house in the middle of the night, she can’t help but notice that there is a glow that seems to get bigger in one of the windows. Then her sister starts to act very strangely. Before long, her dad is in a car accident and what’s stranger is that it doesn’t seem to be an accident. And Kasey is really acting stranger as the days go on. Alexis has even noticed that at times it seems as if her eye color has changed. What is going on?

From falling for a boy who she never thought was her type, to suddenly becoming friends with one of the cheerleaders who drove her best friend out of town, this book is as strange and it is long.

I watched a book trailer for this one and knew that I absolutely had to read it. But after taking over a month to read, I feel that the author could’ve taken fewer pages to actually get to the good stuff in the book. Of course, it deals with the paranormal, which a lot of young adult novels are doing nowadays. I feel that they author had a very good idea but was scared of which direction to turn. With that said, I only gave it three stars.

In between reading this book, I read four other titles. I could’ve easily returned this one to the library, but it did keep me interested though at times I just wanted to toss it across the room. From what I’m gathering, this is the first book in a series and I’m sort of stuck on whether or not I should pick up the second book. I’m curious to see what else happens, but at the same time I have lots of other books on my to-read list. I’ll still have to think about it.
