Angelina's Secret

by Lisa Rogers

As a child, Angelina spent years in counseling learning that Josie, her imaginary friend, wasn't real, but it turns out her childhood friend wasn't imaginary after all.

Now Angelina has to accept she's either (A) crazy or (B) able to see ghosts. Wanting to believe in her sanity, she chooses (B) and welcomes Josie back into her life. But even Josie can't help her deal with Shelly, the spirit of a confused teenager, and things go very, very wrong.

When Angelina finds herself in a psychiatric hospital, she faces a choice: she can spend the rest of her life pretending to be someone she isn't, or she can embrace who she is and take a chance that she may never get to go home.

Praise for Angelina's Secret

"I finished this in one sitting!" -- Blkosiner's Book Blog

"The premonitions Angelina experiences felt surprisingly real and the author described them quite vividly. The events were fast-paced, especially Angelina's time in the psychiatric hospital, and the ending could not have ended any other way." -- Live to Read

Angelina's Secret is a ghost story, but it is also a story about family and friends (both old and new, alive and dead). It is also a story about one girl's determination to honor the truth, even at the risk of being locked away forever.”  --  Darby Karchut

“What I love about this book is that is has such a realistic view about it. In a lot of paranormal books, life just continues to go on as normal. But Lisa Rogers has chosen to skip that path and take the one of reality. For a while, I was actually wondering if Angelina was crazy all along.” – Claire Reads http://clairelouisereads.blogspot.com/2012/06/angelinas-secret-lisa-rogers.html

“…if you looking for an energetic ghost story you may want to pick this one up. It’s sure to keep you glued to the pages till the end.” – A Book-lover’s Review

“Angelina's Secret tears at the reader's heart and emotions. The deep drama entices the reader to read more. Angelina's Secret is a great book!”  -- Savannah (Books With Bite)

“I loved this book and read it straight through. The characters are so well developed in story. You can really feel the emotions of everyone involved. I highly recommend this book.” – Books Complete Me

“The characters in this book are what truly made it a good read-- Josie, Angelina's childhood imaginary friend and now current ghost had many conversations with Angelina that were funny, sarcastic, helpful, sentimental... you never really knew what was going to come out of Josie's mouth!” – Dark-Readers

"The most enjoyable and fun characters in the book, however, were the ghosts themselves, who helped to make this a lighthearted story, even in the midst of some serious situations." -- Always YA at Heart


"Angelina’s Secret is the paranormal twist to the teenage mother drama. Using a background of ghosts to stir the pot between mother and daughter gives this book a unique twist."
