After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel

Source: Publisher
Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can't stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They're wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it's neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It's Alan's cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.
Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love-and introducing an exciting new YA voice, Steven Wedel-this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.

Aimee is a really interesting character, but she shared several traits of Jone's other characters and that annoyed me at times. I found Alan to be entertaining and interesting. There instant love was annoying and a bit unrealistic. I didn't think that either characters were like that. I did like how well developed their family life was and that they weren't secretive about it either. The plot was rather suspenseful and made me wonder what was happening next. The possession was very frightening at times and other times, it was very cheesy. I also felt that parts of the book seemed rushed. The story is original and I liked the Native American aspect to it. If you want a quick and creepy story that is full of suspense, I suggest this book.
