Annette Labelle’s debut novel ‘The Unknown Truth’ has everything you would expect from a paranormal mystery young adult story. Misunderstood teenager, unexpected love and…ghosts.
Tina is a normal teenage girl like any other; she is studying for exams, wondering about prom and if her friend Jack will ask her to be his date. However, her life has an unexpected twist when an evil spirit starts haunting their house, taking a particular interest in her. Unable to get her parents to see what’s happening, Tina knows that for the sake of her family she needs to stop it all, before things get really out of hand.
The eeriness and suspense grabs you straight from the beginning, making this book a real page turner. Labelle beautifully captures the life of a well adjusted teenager and adds a chilling paranormal twist, turning Tina’s life completely upside down. Relationships are tested, trust is broken and Tina has to find strength in herself to overcome it all as she is the key to save her family.
If like me, you have a taste for paranormal young adult stories (even though you’re way pass the young adult status!) make sure to give this one a read. I promise you won’t regret it, even though you will sleep with the lights on for a week.
