"Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister...more Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude.

When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior. Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in.

Alexis wants to think that it's all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening--to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the class president. Alexis knows she's the only person who can stop Kasey -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?"

This book was how can I say......CREEPY! But a good creepy. Like almost like Steven King creepy but for kids.

Alexis notices weird things going on with her sister Kasey. All of the sudden Kasey is losing time. Alexia claims she saw her somewhere and Kasey doesn't remember. Then Alexis starts to see what is really inside of Kasey. A evil little girl bent out for revenge.

Now this book I would LOVE to see in a movie. The whole story in general was great. It did start off slow, but boy did it pick up. After that, you were sucked into everything. Some parts even gave me goosebumps. This is one book that I would not read at night. I love paranormal and all, but messing with the whole possession stuff is umm.. something I would not read before I go to bed.  I was glad that I read this during broad daylight, with my husband right next to me. At times I was even glancing up to make sure he hadn't left.

 Plus, I don't like dolls.

If you want a good thrill, read this book! It is a great written story with great detail. Even the romance touch to it was just right. Nothing was too much and the way if all fit in, in the end was superb!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!
