The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee
- Pub. Date: July 17, 2012
- Publisher: Bloomsbury
- Pages: 368
For the first 50 or so pages the book was mainly concentrating on Rinn, her settling in to her new place of residence and background on her bipolar disorder. But when the hauntings started and the possessions, deaths, and unfortunate accidents this book got creepy fast. Especially when like me you choose to read it in the middle of the night. What really made me find The Unquiet an enjoyable read was as much as I was loving reading about Rinn and the things that came out of her mouth which by the way the girl doesn't hold back for anyone which was a breath of fresh air, I found the story of Annelise just as intriguing if not more. I was curious about her, who was she, what happened to her that turned her into such an evil spirit, and why was she only attacking a select few of the kids, all these questions kept me engrossed in the book till the very last page.
As for her friends I was not a fan of them, they were so horrible I don't understand how anyone can be friends with girls like that. I did like Nate which is why I found myself hoping nothing bad happens to him since it seemed like everyone who was close to Rinn came to meet some form of tragedy.
Overall Garsee created a spine-chilling ghost story that readers will devour.
