Excerpt and Review: haunted U by Jessica Gibson!

Book Description

 October 10, 2013
Ezzie Lovegreen lives in a world where witches and ghosts are real. That doesn’t mean she’s not surprised when she’s suddenly being haunted by one at school.

With the help of her best friend Stella, her boyfriend Beau, and her grandmother Winifred, Ezzie must find out what happened to the ghost and set her free.

Secrets will be revealed that could change Ezzie’s life forever. Will Ezzie be strong enough to face the challenges set in her path?

Winifred carried a large bowl and a small glass and set them on the table. Each was filled with the potion she had just brewed. “Okay, are we ready?” Stella nodded nervously. “Yeah, I’m ready.” “You totally sure?” “I’m very sure. I’m ready for this,” Stella responded with certainty. “Please sit down at the table then, everyone. Stella, you need to drink the potion in the glass.” Stella picked up the small glass and smelled its contents. She wrinkled her nose. “Well, down the hatch.” She knocked it back like a shot of whiskey and coughed. “Oh, that is revolting.” She made a face. Winifred smiled and snapped her fingers, turning off all the lights in the room. The candles and the flame bathed the room in flickering light. “Ezzie, Beau, Grady, please join hands with Stella and chant the spell.” They all linked hands, and the three began to chant the spell over and over. For a moment, nothing happened, and then a grayish mist began to erupt from the bowl of potion. It curled and rippled its way across the table to where Stella sat. As the chanting continued, the mist wrapped itself around Stella, covering her like a cloak, obscuring her from view. “Good, keep going, just a little longer.” Winifred instructed as she moved around the table, checking the progress of the spell. Stella was now a mass of swirling mist, no part of her left uncovered. “Stop!” Winifred ordered as she slid the bowl in front of Stella. In one motion, she flicked her wrist and brought the flame down into the bowl of liquid, extinguishing it with a loud hissing sound. She blew the smoke and mist, and it sucked back into the bowl, leaving Stella once again uncovered. “Did it work?” Stella asked excitedly. “I don’t know. Let’s test it out.” Winifred smiled. “Charlie, would you come in here?” Charlie popped into view and Stella gasped. “Oh, my gosh, I can see her! I can see Charlie!” she squealed. “Nice to finally be able to talk to you after all this time.” Charlie laughed. “Wow, this is so crazy.” Stella giggled. “I guess it worked then.” Grady put an arm around Stella’s shoulders. “Welcome to club crazy. We see dead people.” Stella punched him in the arm playfully. “Happy to join.” They spent the rest of the night calling all of the ghosts they knew so Stella could get a feel for what it was going to be like from now on. Ezzie and Stella spent the night, and Beau and Grady went home. “Thank you,” Stella whispered just as they were falling asleep. “For what?” “For this, for not telling me no. For letting me be a part of your world.” “You were always a part of it. Now you just get to see all the weird stuff.” Ezzie squeezed Stella’s hand, and they fell asleep.
