Freaksville by Kitty Keswick



High school is hard enough when you’re normal. There’s peer pressure, book reports, the in crowd and the enormous zit that has a life of its own. Having a family whose skeletons in the closet lean toward the paranormal is not a topper on anyone’s list. Sophomore Kasey Maxwell is busy juggling the typical teen angst. Add visions, ghosts and hairy four-legged monsters into the mix and you get FREAKSVILLE. It’s a wonder Kasey has survived.

Every woman in the Maxwell family has the gift of sight. A talent sixteen-year-old Kasey would gladly give up. All she wants is a normal life. Shopping and talking about boys with her best friend and long-time sidekick Gillie Godshall consume her days. Until Kasey has a vision about Josh Johnstone, the foreign exchange student from England. The vision leads her into new waters, a lead in a play, a haunted theater…and into the arms of the Josh. Yet, both Kasey and Josh have secrets lurking in dark corners. Can Kasey’s new romance survive FREAKSVILLE?

This was an interesting book. It kept my attention, but you could tell it was the author's first book. I'm not saying it was bad, but there were a lot of supernatural elements that I felt were just thrown into the book. I especially felt this at the end of the book when they revealed the big secret. I'm not sure what else to say about this book! lol I would recommend it to someone who likes YA Paranormal books though. I will be reading the next book in the series, but I may not be pre-ordering it.
