The Seventh (Book 1) by SD Wasley

About the Book:

This is a Young Adult Paranormal and the first novel written by SD Wasley.  It is written with the young teen in mind but let me just say, as a 40+ year old, I could not put it down.

“Sixteen year old Mimi Alston has company. No less than three ghosts follow her around, and only she can see them. At her last school, she was known as the girl with imaginary friends. Now Mimi’s starting fresh in a new town, where she’s determined to make some real friends and fit in for once. She’s ready for a normal life…except Mimi never counted on her fascination with troubled goth-boy, Drew.   When she’s invited to join the elite Gifted Program, Mimi discovers she’s not the only one at the school with an unusual talent. Maybe being normal isn’t even an option anymore.”

My Five Star Review:

I first stumbled across SD Wasley in Summer Crush the Young Adult Anthology, which I read and reviewed here back in August 2015.  Since I enjoyed her story, I searched around and found her first novel, The Seventh.  This was a fast paced, action packed and an extremely well detailed story revolving around 7 young adults.  So much happened throughout the story it kept me engaged and I really didn’t want to put it down.  Mimi, who narrates the story, and Drew are the main characters but the other 5 kids play a huge role.  Mimi may be living with seeing ghosts but this was much more than just a ghost story.  There was a crush or two, a lot of paranormal activity, first love and the start of some great friendships.  This book definitely left me wanting more and I’m extremely glad book two, The Rift, came out today, November 6, 2015.  I would highly recommend this book for readers 13+.
