Angelina's Secret - Lisa Rogers

"As a child, Angelina spent years in counseling learning that Josie, her imaginary friend, wasn't real, but it turns out her childhood friend wasn't imaginary after all.Now Angelina has to accept she's either (A) crazy or (B) able to see ghosts. Wanting to believe in her sanity, she chooses (B) and welcomes Josie back into her life. But even Josie can't help her deal with Shelly, the spirit of a confused teenager, and things go very, very wrong.When Angelina finds herself in a psychiatric hospital, she faces a choice: she can spend the rest of her life pretending to be someone she isn't, or she can embrace who she is and take a chance that she may never get to go home."

I must admit that I don't read a lot of ghost books. It's not that I don't like them, I just haven't found any that are overly talked about. This book, however, will be a book that I have to share with the world.

Angelina, or Angel as she is more commonly called, can see ghosts. But no-one else believes her. After trying to tell her family the truth, she end's up in a Mental Health Care Facility, where she meets Rebecca, another patient who can also see ghosts. Now she has a choice - either pretend she was lying all along, or try and convince her family once again that she isn't crazy.

I have to say, I really enjoyed this book. Angel is such a strong character. She chooses to believe and embrace the paranormal around her, rather than call herself crazy. She know's that she could end up stuck in the Mental Health Care Facility forever, but still she continues again and again to convince her family she is telling the truth.

What I love about this book is that is has such a realistic view about it. In a lot of paranormal books, life just continues to go on as normal. But Lisa Rogers has chosen to skip that path and take the one of reality. For a while, I was actually wondering if Angelina was crazy all along.

I really loved all the supporting character's in the novel. Most of them are ghosts yet they still have their wit about them. Then there is Rebecca, her fellow patient and Kobi, Rebecca's daughter, both who have the ability to see ghosts. Together, the character's make this a very enjoyable read.

Another point I found refreshing, was that there wasn't really any romance involved in this story. The focus was all on Angelina and I liked it that way.

The only thing I didn't like was that I found that it ended too suddenly. Apart from that, I really enjoyed this story!
