Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence: dysfunctional like her parents marriage; her doll-crazy thirteen-year-old sisiter, Kasey;and even her own antisocial anti-cheerleading attitude. When a family argument results in tearful sisterly bonding. Alexis realizes her life is creeping from dysfunctional to dangerous. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go to green; she uses odd old-fashioned language-and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing of her weird behaviour. Their old house is changing too. Doors open and close by themselves mater boils on an unlit stove, and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough for the girls to see their breath. Alexis wants to believe it's all in her head, until these seemingly harmless occurrences become life threatening-to her, to her family, and to her budding relationship with the student council vice president. Alexis knows she's the onky person who can stop Kasey; but what if that green eyed girl isn't evn Kasey anymore?
An awesome book, it was a quick read for me because i just couldn't put it down. Alexis is an awesome character, a girl who doesn't fit in but doesn't care that she doesn't. I love her sarcastic humour she had me smiling the whole time. The book reminded me of when i was a kid and i'd get all caught up in an R.L.Stine novel and stay up all night with my flash light reading......it's a big kid ghost story. It was fun to try and piece the clues together and figure out what was going on. My only complaint is I wish Carter was around more, he was so charming and when him and Alexis were together their banter was a good laugh. I can't wait to read the next in the series. All in all i'm giving this book 4 out of 5.
