Devoured by Amanda Marrone

Marissa, 12   
Amanda Marrone   

        Megan can see ghosts. Well technically only her twin sister, Remy, who died when they were in second grade in a car accident. After this accident, her dad survived, but never woke up. For the past 10 years he has been surviving in a nursing home with a feeding tube. Since the accident, Remy started showing up every once in a while, maybe once every two months. However, recently Remy has been showing up a lot with scary words like “she is going to die” and “hurry Meggy!” Remy shows Megan the future, and once Megan pieces all the clues together, will it be too late? Will there be time for a budding new romance? Will taking away her father’s feeding tube help Remy move on? Find out in this paranormal fiction book by Amanda Marrone.  My rating is 9/10 because it was very unpredictable. Amanda takes a Disney fairy tale and turns it into something scary; you never know how things will piece together until the very end.  

Rating: 4 Better than most
