Summary of the Book:

A car accident shattered sixteen-year-old Morgan’s family. Now her brother’s dead, her mom’s paralyzed in more ways than one, her dad lives at work and her seven-year-old sister Amy tries too freaking hard to salvage everything. What’s more, high school is its own special kind of hell, where her ex-boyfriend delights in spreading rumors that shred her reputation and make her feel like a loser.

When she finds an old camera in a creepy abandoned hospital, it seems like her luck is finally changing. And it is changing–from bad to worse. Because of course it is. Each time Morgan photographs one of her classmates they become corrupted versions of themselves. It’s like the camera steals their goodness, their essence, and leaves them hollow.

Then her sister uses the camera to take a selfie.

No matter what the cost, Morgan will find a way to reverse the effects of the cursed camera and save Amy, before her already-fractured family completely self-destructs.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I read the blurb for this book and that was something that was just so creepy. It had me thinking of old tv shows I watched with my mother about cursed objects. It in this case it was a camera. It would leave the people photographed feeling empty or hollow. Everything is already wrong in Morgan’s life and she is trying to keep it together and her life is already hell. It is only when her sister takes a selfie with the camera does she knows she has to find a way to fix what is happening. It is a chilling story.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
