The Summoning (Darkest Powers, Book 1) by Kelley Armstrong

Chloe Sanders sees ghosts. She has a major break down in school the very first day she gets her first period. She runs through the halls screaming. That seals her fate of being admitted to a home for teens with mental illnesses.

She is sent to Lyle House. There she meets her room mates. They are a funky bunch of kids. She makes friends with Simon and his weirdly intimidating brother Derek. She makes very good friends with Rae. They all work together to determine that Lyle House is a conspiracy theory because they all have some sort of "power", as in X-Men like powers.

That's about all I should explain because the rest you'll want to find out yourself. The book is well written and the characters are likable. However, this book doesn't have an ending either!!! Geesh.

The Awakening is planned to be released May 2009. I'm not 100% sure if I'll pick up the sequel. It was a little to YA for me.

P.S. This was one of the books I put off reading because it wasn't available for the Kindle. It was released July 1 but not for the Kindle until September 9th.

Thanks, Jess. I think I'll wait on this one until I can get it from the library. I've got the latest House of Night book to read and that should satisfy my YA for awhile.
