the Summoning (Darkest Powers Trilogy #1) REVIEW

The Summoning (Darkest Powers, #1)By: Kelley Armstrong
My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.

All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost - and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? it's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House...before its skeletons come back to haunt me.

this book was very depressing. the set was depressing, because everything seemed grey and dull, the characters where poorly detailed, at first i thought it was a joke, because the first chapter is about bonding with the main character, too get to know the character at least a bit, just so that you get that "hey this might be a good book" thought up in your head. 
I didn't like Chloe because i didn't no much about her, at all, but i kept reading. and reading. and reading. until i came to page 200 something, i just couldn't do it any longer. the book was OK, it had a storyline, but even I could have done a better job. when you write about a story that takes place in a mental home it's important to give the story some shine, at least if you goal is not to make your readers feel like crap, but Armstrong didn't manage to do that.
