{my thoughts} – This book was right up my alley in terms of paranormal. It’s also young adult and has an interesting plot.

Daisy is a high school student that has an unusual ability that allows her to control electricity. She has a close friend named Danielle that is the only person aside from here mother that is aware of what she is capable of doing.

She lives in what one could call the stone age, she has to be away from most modern electronics or she ruins them with bad power surges. Eventually she becomes friends with a girl named Vivi that she learns talks to a ghost named Patrick.

When Danielle freezes her out because of Patrick and Vivi she turns to a boy named Kevin to speak with about what is going on and he has insight that she hadn’t thought of and he is also unique in a sense like she is but not like she is.

This whole book is based on Patrick and his life before he became a ghost and after etc. If you want to know what happens with Patrick and Daisy you should read the book. It’s a nice fairly short book.

At the end of the book there is an account of the story in Kevin, Daisy and Danielle’s perspective. I was not thrilled when I discovered these things at the end of the book. They basically retell the entire story but in rather creative ways. If I had known that all I needed to do was read the last 30 pages and I would have understood the entire story. I think that the way the book ended should have been the way it was written. Creativity in a book is what makes a book stand out and had the author written it in all the different perspectives of the characters I think It could have been a delightful read.

I do recommend this book to others. I can’t wait to read more by this particular author.

A detailed memoir of illness, orphan illness, and the helplessness and hopelessness that come when your body is incapacitated, and doctors can’t figure out why. My favorite parts were the ones detailing CSF Leak (spontaneous intracranial hypotension—where fluid leaks from the spine and causes constant fluid shortage in the brain) is a rare disorder that occurs in only 1 out of every 20,000 people, and so it often goes undiagnosed and misdiagnosed for years while patients worsen, are accused of malingering, and the disease progresses, causing severe headache, confusion, cognitive impairment, dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, and inability to be upright for more than a few minutes. This memoir is very detailed at times, and painful to read, but an accurate depiction. A great book for "Leakers" in all of its detail and the reminder that there are others out there experiencing the same thing.

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.
