Chira Kelly thought she didn't need anyone...until she met Ben.

Because of the one ugly rumor, Chira lives as an outcast at he school. Which is fine with her, because she works better alone. Always has, always will. And at least she has her one and only true friend, Tasha. When Tasha insist that they join a group to visit a possible haunted abandoned old schoolhouse, she's wary, but joins her friend. Because of that decision, their lives are in jeopardy as malevolent spirit targets the group. Tragedies and accidents pick them off one by one, and Chira finds herself drawn to the one person who can see the truth. But can he protect her?


I honestly loved the cover, it's so cute!

First Impression was a good book, that I enjoyed reading. It's very down to earth, even though paranormal is one of the genres. The main character Chira is funny and smart, even though she also suffers from the disease "love at first sight".
The book is unique in it's own way, I loved the ghost idea and how lovable all of the characters where. Seriously, I don't think there were many characters I didn't like. Tasha has to be my favorite character though, since I love her spontaneous and carefree personality. Honestly, I wish she was my friend!

Creeden's writing style is funny and good, easy to understand and this is coming from someone with English as a secondary language.

The plot was really fun and even though I think it had a slow start, then it suddenly really got exciting and it was almost impossible to lay down. So I would say the book was a fast read!.

I really recommend this book to everyone that likes romance, a little fantasy and action. I also recommend it to those who aren't used to reading English yet, this book was very easy and a nice start for those who want to read more English and get better.
I give it 5 stars!.
