Review: Deception by Lee Nichols

Released: June 8, 2010
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Rated: YA
Buy Deception

When Emma Vaile's parents leave on mysterious business trip, it gives her the perfect excuse to be a rebellious teen. Throw some parties, get a tattoo (or maybe just a piercing), and enjoy the first few weeks of her junior year. Then her best friend stops talking to her, the cops crash her party, and Emma finds herself in the hands of a new guardian—her college-age "knight in J.Crew armor," Bennett Stern—and on a plane to his museum-like mansion in New England. After enrolling at Thatcher Academy, Emma settles in by making friends with the popular legacy crowd. But she can't shake the strange visions that are haunting her. She has memories of Thatcher she can't explain, as if she's returning home to a place she's never been. Emma doesn't trust anyone anymore—except maybe Bennett. But he's about to reveal a ghostly secret to Emma. One that will explain the visions . . . and make Emma fear for her life.

What I thought:

I haven't read too many books based on ghosts but I'm thinking I need to correct that. I enjoyed this book, I liked how it was different from other paranormal books I'm used to reading. Makes for a nice change of pace when mostly you read about vampires.

The story was interesting. I like the ghast plot. There were times I wanted to smack Bennett upside the head for being a jerk and I was happy that Emma found some new friends to hang with. I really liked Coby, Sarah and Harry. I really liked the heckling ghosts in fencing class. I really got a nice laugh out of those kids.

I really felt for Emma when her parents go missing and the things that were plotted to get her to Boston. On top of her parents disappearing, she doesn't seem to have an easy time of discovering just what her parents had hid from her and what her future just might hold, Lee Nichols made her character feel real with all the things she was dealing with.

This is a well written young adult novel. It is definitely worth a read.

My Rating:
