I am not a big fan of the horror genre. That's why I had this book on my shelf for a really long time before I decided to read it on my holiday. And yes it gives me the creeps but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I must say I have yet to encounter an Asian female main character in a YA book so this is kind of new for me although Bridget Liu is half Caucasian. Interestingly, she have three close guy friends and her best friend is gay. Surprise..suprise.
The book is very fast paced and there's not a boring moment at all. I just wished that it's longer and there's more character development for Bridget. The funny bits also made me smile. Especially during the parts where Bridget is supposed to help the priests exorcist a creepy doll shop but tried so hard to hide her fear.
It's creepy as hell! Well in a good way. I have images of Linda Blair's hideous head in my brain while reading this. So this one is certainly not for the faint of heart. And the clues are so obvious that I can't help but throw my hands in the air and wished the writer made it a bit more challenging for us to discover who the real villain is. I mean yes the ghosts/demons had help apparently.
