It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed and it's the worst day of her life.
Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit.
She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again. Everyone thinks she's crazy. Everyone except Lydia, that is. Another patient with some special abilities....
I know a lot of people said to read this after My Soul to Take, but I must read things in order if at all possible, so I read it first. And I'm glad I did! This was a great preview of the series, and it made me even more excited to get started on the first book. It's like an awesome movie trailer getting you pumped up for the actual movie. I enjoyed getting to know the main character, Kaylee, a bit before diving into the series. And what better way to get to know someone than following them around the psych ward of a hospital!
