Review: Gift by Andrea Buchanan

* I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review from NetGalley. *

Daisy is a typical high school sophomore...with a secret. She struggles to fit in amongst her peers and has more high school transfers than she cares to count. She thinks that life can't get any weirder. However, once she crosses paths with Vivi, the school loner, things will never be the same.

I really enjoyed this book. Ghost stories are kind of a hit or miss deal with me. Either they are well done or they lack a sensible plot. Gift, however, is a hit with me. The plot is strong; the characters have a lot of growth and change; and the paranormal element is handled beautifully. While ghost stories have a tendency to be slightly cheesy, Ms. Buchanan crafted a tale that was both believable and at times truly frightening.

I highly recommend this book to those who love paranormal books.

5/5 Stars


  1. I so agree with you on ghost stories. When they're done well, they're so good!! Glad you enjoyed this.

    1. Yes indeed!
      After reading a few bad ghost stories, I was so nervous to give this one a shot but I'm so glad that I did :)
