As a child, Angelina spent years in counseling learning that Josie, her imaginary friend, wasn't real, but it turns out her childhood friend wasn't imaginary after all.Now Angelina has to accept she's either (A) crazy or (B) able to see ghosts. Wanting to believe in her sanity, she chooses (B) and welcomes Josie back into her life. But even Josie can't help her deal with Shelly, the spirit of a confused teenager, and things go very, very wrong.When Angelina finds herself in a psychiatric hospital, she faces a choice: she can spend the rest of her life pretending to be someone she isn't, or she can embrace who she is and take a chance that she may never get to go home.

I was expecting a scary story and I found myself involved in a very emotional one. I loved it!

I admire Angelina’s strength. Where she tried to figure out what was going on with all the ghost stuff, I personally would have freaked out. She was stunned, of course, but at the same time she kept a great calm that helped her dealing with her gift. And I loved that she would always stand out and tell the truth, even if this keeps her away from her home and her family.

About family, Angelina’s mother, Patty, was kinda disturbing . . . I can understand she worries about her daughter, but I think her jealousy for Josie and Angelina’s relationship made her completely blind and she wasn’t helping Angelina at all, she was simply avoiding her ‘problem’ and trying to get her daughter back, to build that mother and daughter relationship she was desperate to have. I had an imaginary friendโ€”she wasn’t a ghost, but stillโ€”and I had her for several years so, if Patty would have been my mom, she would have put me in a mental health care facility way earlier and I have chills only at the thought!

Angelina’s Secret is an emotional reading, but also funny one thanks to Josie and some of the other ghosts who make this story unique and very entertaining!
