Do you believe in spirits that transcend the Ouija board? This story starts off with a simple game on a Ouija board with Amy and her closest friends to reveal the fate of a first date with the most popular boy in school, Alex Decker. They ask all the important questions: if the date will be fun, if he will fall head over heels for her, and most importantly, if he will give her a goodnight kiss.
Amy Love is too old to believe in ghosts and zombies; at least she thought she was until she ruins her first date with Alex by feeling spooked because of the Ouija board. She can’t even lean into her goodnight kiss without the spirits bothering her.
A few days go by, but the constant feeling of being watched doesn’t fade away. It isn’t until Amy accidentally slips and bumps her head when she starts to see things that no one else could fathom. In that moment Amy feels free and trapped all at once, and when she opens her eyes again she realizes that she has lost total control of her body. It is like her soul has been trapped in the belly of her stomach and some boy seems to be taking her place. She tries everything in her power to get out and take control of her body but it is no use.
Jonathan is a sixteen-year-old boy who seems to have found himself trapped inside of a sixteen-year-old girl’s body with very little memory of the last moments of his life. All he knows is that he only has a few moments before he is invisible and voiceless again and he needs to use each second wisely to figure out what is going on with him.
See Me by Susan Hatler is about two teenagers, one who feels invisible to her parents, peers, and teachers, and the other who is literally invisible to everyone except Amy. They only have a few days to figure out what is really going on and they only have a handful of people who will even believe in what Amy is trying to say. There is a part of me that wants to go back and re-read this book because I feel like I might have missed a few things, but I think that is one of the things that makes a book great!
