The Promises she keeps by Erin Healy

Promise had a lung disease that was going to kill her sooner then later. She was waiting for Zack to show up. She was standing close to the cliffs that looked out onto the ocean. What she didn't know was that her life was going to change in only a few minutes.

Chase and his sister Chelsea were twins but, Chase had Autism. He loved to draw pictures of trees and spent most of his days doing that. They would take only a few hours or so and walk to get ice cream. He liked to keep the to the same way of doing things.

Porta Cerreto is Zacks much older mother, she was also a witch and was in search of immortality. Which would become the death of her or others that would get in her way. When she heard about Promises accidents and that she survived. Porta thought that she had found what she was looking for. Things end up becoming quite dangerous.

Chase had a good heart and seemed to care about people a lot. He started to give his pictures away. It confused his sister to why he was doing that.

The book started out a little slow but, it picked up the farther you read. Its a good story and I'm not going to spoil the ending.

Spirit walk by Richie Tankerslry Cusick

This is a two in one book. Walk of the spirits and Shadow mirror. They tell the story of Miranda Barnes and her mom moving to St. Yvette's. She meets Ashley, Gage, Parker, Roo and Etienne. She also meets her Aunt Teeta. Finds out a little bit about her grandfather who dies not long after they moved there.

She finds out that she has a special gift for hearing and seeing spirits. She also starts to feel really close to Etienne and he has a habit of showing up in her room. When they are close to each other she feels really hot all over.

She need to solve the mystery of the spirits that were visiting her and her friends wanted to help her solve it. Gage loved to do the research on about anything and the rest just liked to talk and bring up ideas to help Miranda.

By the time you get to the second book you start to wonder what's going to happen to Miranda. Is she going to get together with Etienne or Gage who also seems to like her. But in this book the spirits are a lot more difficult to figure out what they want and how she can help them.

The book is fast paced and will worth the read. There are some surprises in store and the ending is great.
