Ghost Hand, The PSS Chronicles Volume 1, by Ripley Patton is a young adult urban paranormal novel about Olivia who was born with a hand that not only glows occasionally, but it also can morph into other shapes. And then Olivia wonders why people think she’s weird. It couldn’t be the glowing hand.
The upside to all of this is that there’s a nice group of patriotic citizens who are looking for Olivia and others like her. And oh yea, they really don’t want Olivia, they just want the hand for themselves. When the hand starts to have a mind of its own and do things that she doesn’t want, her classmate Marcus and some friends come in to save the day! But really, it’s probably going to be our protagonist that saves the day.
This book has a lot of great characters in it, and is fast paced to keep readers turning the pages to the end. It does a good job of handling the topics of prejudice and trust issues, and gives us a glimpse into a paranormal world that we really haven’t seen before. It has a 4.3 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon, and books two, three and four are also available.
