First Impressions - Review

First Impressions (A Shadow Maven Paranormal)
by Pauline Creeden
Genre: YA Paranormal, Coming of Age, Teen Sci Fi

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

Because of one ugly rumor, Chira lives as an outcast at her 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 insists that they join a group to visit a possibly haunted abandoned old schoolhouse, she's wary, but joins her friend. Because of that decision, their lives are in jeopardy as a 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 received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This is a great YA book. I love the Paranormal aspect without it being over the top. The characters (for the most part) act their age. They are realistic without being too mature. The plot is mysterious. It's like a ghost story, murder mystery and demon book wrapped into one. It's a good clean read for younger readers, but enjoyable enough for older readers. I couldn't put this story down. I liked the character of Chira. I like Ben and Matt. I'm anxious to read more of this series. It was a well written tale by a creative author.
