Book Review: May Haunting Love
Calista Rose is a sixteen year old deaf girl that knows something is amiss inside her home. When things start moving on their own, and her favorite ASL book mysteriously gets highlighted, she knows for sure she is in trouble. Soon she meets a ghost named John and gets smitten. His classic looks, gentlemanly ways, and boy next door charm claim her heart. But little does she know falling in love with John will wake up the true evil inside her home and threaten her life, and the lives of her family. Unless she can find a way for John to expose the truth behind his father's and sister's deaths.
This multi layered book had me captivated from the first page. Not only is it a sweet teenage love story, but it is a murder mystery complete with a "Clue" like who done it spin. The story seamlessly flows, and the backstory is cleanly integrated. The fact that Clista is deaf only adds to the books imagery. We see everything more clearly, as Clarista relies on her sense of sight, the descriptions clearly portray this.
My Haunting Love is a clever and sweet read. Wilsoncroft clearly has grown as a writer. This book showcases her ability to build suspense, as well as her ability to make you feel for her characters. This is her first YA novel and clearly she hits the mark. I will even go so far as to say this book is YA Gold. Perfect for middle to upper grade kids, but adults will appreciate the action and suspense as well. Great summer read that won't weigh you down and will leave you feeling satisfied.
My Haunting Love is just one of the new books coming out from Write More Publications. WMP is dedicated to bringing you great books at affordable prices. They are an up and coming publisher growing by the day.
