When Chloe finally breaks down, she's admitted to a group home for disturbed kids.

At first Lyle House seems okay, but as she gets to know the other patients - charming Simon and his ominous, unsmiling brother Derek; obnoxious Tori; and Rae, who has a 'thing' for fire - Chloe begins to realise that something strange and sinister binds them all together, and it isn't your usual 'problem kid' behaviour.And they're about to discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home, either . . .

Review by

kelley Armstrong's "The Summoning" hypnotized me with its creative and mysterious characters. Every book needs a good set of characters. But the characters in this book are incredibly unique and original. I loved that a lot of the characters have superhuman abilities. But this isn't just your average super hero / werewolf / vampire type book. The characters are who make this book are so unique. And it's not just because they are "supernaturals", but also because of their strange and relatable personalities. Each character is different. And I love that. Also you can relate to some of the characters and how they feel. I'm not talking about you being sent to a physco home, but the stuff some characters have to deal with, like fitting in and coping with their parents. Anyway, The Summoning is a fantastic book and I recommend this book to teenagers of all ages.
