Blog Tour Review and Giveaway!: AFTER OBSESSION by Carrie Jones and Steven E Wedel

by Carrie Jones and Seven E Wedel
Hardcover, 320 pages
Published September 13th 2011 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Placement in the Pile: Reaching New Heights

Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can't stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They're wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it's neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It's Alan's cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.

Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love-and introducing an exciting new YA voice, Steven Wedel-this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.

I am a big fan of Carrie Jones' previous work and I was really excited for this new book. I have to be honest that I haven't read a novel written by two authors yet, and I didn't know how it would work out. But the seamlessness of the story telling between Carrie's writing of Aimee's voice and Steven's writing of Alan's character was perfect. I was never pulled out of the story and thought, oh this is a different author, or that didn't flow well.

AFTER OBSESSION tells a bone chilling story of good vs. evil, paranormal powers, coming of age and even a bit of romance. What's not to love?

I fell in love with the voices of both Aimee and Alan. I could relate to both of them. They were very complex and real. Aimee is strong, yet insecure in many ways. And was dealing with growing up and figuring out her inner strength. Alan was thrown into a new world where he was the outsider but the key to saving the whole town.

If you are a fan of paranormal stories this is worth reading. It sucessfully creeped me out to the point where I coudln't sleep, but that just kept me reading. I enjoyed everything about this book!

And lucky you the publisher is giving away one of our readers an ARC copy of this book! Just fill out your info below! Open until 11:59 pm Sunday Sept 18th. for US residents with street addresses only (no P.O. boxes).
