Banished by Sophie Littlefield

Hailey has never fit in at her high school. Her grandma is a drug dealer with mental problems; at least she has her foster brother, Chub. Then shortly after a girl is injured in gym and Hailey's aunt Prairie shows up. Aunt Prairie tells Hailey that she is a healer, and that their lifes are in danger. As Prairie's past starts to show up, Hailey realizes that there is a lot more to this adventure than she thought.

From the first page the author draws you in. You can easily feel Hailey's pain and confusion throughout the book. The setting and plot are believable. Since this book is written in first person, it takes the story to another level. It was wonderfully written and I could easily see a sequel. I recommend this book to people who liked Double Identify, the Mortal Instruments series and anyone who loves the supernatural or is just looking for a great book.
