BR: Deception By: Lee Nichols

Let's learn alittle about the book:

When Emma Vaile's parents leave on mysterious business trip, it gives her the perfect excuse to be a rebellious teen. Throw some parties, get a tattoo (or maybe just a piercing), and enjoy the first few weeks of her junior year. Then her best friend stops talking to her, the cops crash her party, and Emma finds herself in the hands of a new guardian—her college-age "knight in J.Crew armor," Bennett Stern—and on a plane to his museum-like mansion in New England. After enrolling at Thatcher Academy, Emma settles in by making friends with the popular legacy crowd. But she can't shake the strange visions that are haunting her. She has memories of Thatcher she can't explain, as if she's returning home to a place she's never been. Emma doesn't trust anyone anymore—except maybe Bennett. But he's about to reveal a ghostly secret to Emma. One that will explain the visions . . . and make Emma fear for her life.

Note: there may be a spoil or two
Cover: Okay, the cover is awesome it drew me in on first site. Also, the title and A Haunting Emma Novel, did the job. Also, also, i love how its part of the story and it has the ghost- y mist/ fog thing goin on really helped me love it. But did the book make me stay?
Book: Alright, the book was perfect it had me on the first sentence! But, what kept me flipping pages was the the sarcasm, emotion, and the weird supernatural funkys Emma kept getting. It was the perfect read that I was wanting, because a) the romance with the boy's' b) the visions and meetings with the ghost and c) the action bits thrown in here and there, are pretty cool. Plus, they have really hot guys in Deception. Over all Nichols has made a great YA book, that you'll be dying to get a hold of the sequel Betrayal in March 2011.
