Review: Freaksville (ARC) by Kitty Keswick


where I got my copy: Princess Bookie's Around the World Tours
where to buy: Amazon, B&N
release date: January 08, 2010

Every woman in the Maxwell family has the gift of sight. A talent sixteen year old Kasey would gladly give up. Until Kasey has a vision about Josh Johnstone, the foreign exchange student from England. The vision leads her into deep waters, a lead in a play, and into the arms of Josh. But Josh, too, has a secret. Something that could put them all in danger. To solve a mystery of a supernatural haunting, they must uncover the secrets of the haunted theater when they are trapped on the night of the full moon.

It was an interesting book. It was written as a blog style, complete with comments and screen names that are easy to guess whom it belongs to and little drawings. It was very cute. Kasey has this power of seeing the future by touching an object or a person. She always wear gloves, her best friend knows about it and her parents are some type of a supernatural too. So it is safe to say that she does not carry a lot of burden since she can talk to people about her "gift". Kasey loves Jensen Ackles and got this amazing relationship with her best friend Gillie, so I liked her almost instantly. Her love interest's name is Josh, a foreign exchange student from England who apparently lives in her street with the snooty popular girl Petra. He is mysterious, yet he did not quite hold my interest very much, despite Kasey's obvious swooning for this boy, the only thing I find sexy about him was his accent and that he is "supernatural".

It all started when Kasey saw a vision that Josh was all sprawled out in the ground. She can't exactly warn him a that time so she did the best that she could do. Stalk him just to make sure that if anything happen someone will be there for him. (or I think that's how she played it out) So he was stalking him right? the next thing she know she was trying out for a play. Reading lines for Romeo & Juliet. The shocking part, she actually got the part with Josh being the Romeo. Then her first kiss interrupted by a ghost. But the ghost is just a part of the story. The events that happened next was even more interesting than that. Major points in the story are the Maxwell-Johnston feud, Kasey's family gift, the best friend relationship of Kasey & Gillie and the other paranormal creatures that lurks at night.
