Title: The Changeling
Genre: YA Paranormal
I came home from the hospital on the anniversary of my sister’s death. Mom kept chatting away with nervous energy, fingers tapping on the wheel of the car as she drove. I didn’t recognize the way she took. Then again, this would be the first time I saw the new house, bought 3 years ago.
“I got you registered for school last week,” she said bringing me out of my thoughts.
“I got you registered for school. Eleventh grade.”
“Are you sure that’s a good idea?” I asked.
“You have another week before school starts, so you’ll have time to prepare.” She cast a quick glance my way. “Besides, Dr. Morris said you should get used to a normal routine and what’s more normal for a sixteen year old than high school?”
I shook my head and turned to look out of the window again.
for me was very different than most teenagers my age. I knew as soon as I stepped foot in the school everyone would know me as the crazy girl who spent four and a half years in the nut house. Normal
“So you talked to Dr. Morris about this?”
“Of course I did, honey,” she said to me, not a little exasperated. “I’m not going to do anything that would-”
“Send me to Nutsville again,” I finished for her.
“Hey, Dr. Morris has said time and time again that the emotional trauma you went through would have left it’s mark on any young girl.”
