 Sixteen year old Mimi Alston has company. No less than three ghosts follow her around, and only she can see them. At her last school, she was known as the girl with imaginary friends. Now Mimi’s starting fresh in a new town, where she’s determined to make some real friends and fit in for once. She’s ready for a normal life...except Mimi never counted on her fascination with troubled goth-boy, Drew.

When she’s invited to join the elite Gifted Program, Mimi discovers she’s not the only one at the school with an unusual talent. Maybe being normal isn’t even an option anymore.

 The Seventh by S.D. Wasley

The SeventhHer parents thought she had emotional problems, her classmates taunted her for her imaginary friends. Her doctor said she was fine, but recommended a special school for children “like her.” Mimi and the ghosts who protect her are about to start on a new chapter in her life in a new school and just maybe she can make some friends. Invited to join a Gifted Program, Mimi discovers what she always believed in her heart, she is not crazy, she has a special gift and so does everyone in the program. Not everyone looked at their talents as gifts, Drew, with the striking green eyes finds his gift to be a curse and he keeps people at a distance by going all goth and carrying a chip the size of Montana on his shoulder. Of course, he is the one that captures Mimi’s heart, but why? In a tale filled with secrets upon secrets, covering secrets, there is danger lurking nearby and together these seven teens must stand together, against the odds, learning the true meaning of trust and friendship along the way!

The Seventh by S.D. Wasley is pure reading entertainment directed at teens, but able to quench any reader’s thirst for intrigue, sweet romance and a wonderful fantasy escape! S.D. Wasley has written an age appropriate fantasy with just enough mental confusion about romance and life to bring back memories for adults and to hit a bullseye for most young teens on up! Well written with great details, emotional hooks and a few unexpected twists, I was completely invested in these kids and how difficult it was for them to master/live with their abilities! A coming of age story in a world full of secrets! Settle in for a tale that brings heartbreak, happiness and understanding to a wonderful group of kids as Mimi finds a place where she finally fits in and it is a place where everyone is uniquely different in their own way!

I received this copy from S.D. Wasley in exchange for my honest review.
