My First Book Review! Dead Spell.

Ok. This is my first official review. 
I'd like to start off by saying I would have never seen this book had my husband not put it on his "to read" list on Goodreads. This is an awesome read and I highly recommend it.
 Here we go.

TITLE: Dead Spell
AUTHOR: Belinda Frisch


Harmony is very outspoken and what you could consider "a wild child" due to a bad home life. She is tormented by a mysterious spirit named Tom. Only her best friend Brea, a much more quiet and reserved teen, knows, and believes Harmony about the ominous ghost. But when the haunting of Harmony ultimately leads to her death, it's up to Brea to find out who or what this "Tom" character actually is, before she becomes the next victim. 


    From the moment I picked up Dead Spell I was completely hooked! I could not put it down. I read this book on my Kindle and it took me maybe two hours.  I read it straight through.  Belinda Frisch tells a wonderful story that makes you understand the true meaning of friendship.  The relationship between Brea and Harmony made me laugh, cry, and even get angry as I followed their journey in this novel. It is very interesting to see the effects on all of the characters based upon  the decisions each girl makes.  
    Belinda paints a wonderful picture of Harmony and her declining mental state as well as Brea's transformation from the meek girl that gets pushed around, to the girl that is standing up for herself and becoming more independent. You support her every step of the way, as she's fighting for the truth. 
    Again. I say I highly recommend this book. It will make you happy and sad. It will make you laugh and even make you afraid of those bumps in the night.


I consider this book as one of My Top 5 of 2011.
