    2. She goes by Mimi—never Miette, which means “crumb” in French. At age 16, she’s moving to a new home in Etherall Valley and rebooting her life at a fancy prep school for unusual kids. She’s got a knack for art, two parents who don’t know what to make of her, and three ghosts for company. Ah, teenagers.In spite of her attempts at social invisibility, within a week Mimi is elevated above the other unusual students and invited into their exclusive “gifted” program, which—until she [...]

    3. Starting the book your thrown into Mimi's world. She's scared and has no idea why these Ghosts have come to her. They've made her the "weird" one of her school.

Understanding that she does have a gift and that she isn't the "weird" one anymore.Mimi grows throughout the entire book. You see a weak girl break the mold and become one that is confident.

    4. Excellent character development, which is quite a feat in the fantasy genre. The main characters' supernatural gifts are well woven into their personalities, making them interesting and quite realistic. The storyline offers plenty of suspense and leaves some intriguing questions for the sequel.

    5. I really enjoyed reading this book! The plot was great and the character dynamic was fun to read about. I was left with one question: will there be more? I hope so!!

    6. I really enjoyed this book. The romance was kind of quick but the story was unique. I already picked up the next book.

    7. Her parents thought she had emotional problems, her classmates taunted her for her imaginary friends. Her doctor said she was fine, but recommended a special school for children “like her.” Mimi and the ghosts who protect her are about to start on a new chapter in her life in a new school and just maybe she can make some friends. Invited to join a Gifted Program, Mimi discovers what she always believed in her heart, she is not crazy, she has a special gift and so does everyone in the program [...]

    8. The SeventhSixteen year old Mimi Alston is a part of the gifted program at her new high school. This program doesn’t resemble the mainstream classes you might find in today’s school however. It’s filled with kids who have special talents or powers. I don’t want to give away too much about these talents because it was fun to discover them as the story went along. I was reminded of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and I kept finding myself wondering what it might feel like to possess [...]

    9. I usually like to take notes whilst reviewing a book but I got so into reading The Seventh I completely forgot to write anything down until I was a quarter of the way.To go through life being ridiculed by your peers only to find out at 16yo that you are actually ‘gifted’ and not the only one with this type of talent was very cleansing.The minute Drew and Mimi locked eyes they were both startled at the recognition they felt yet they had never met. As I progressed through the book I became mor [...]

    10. I first stumbled across SD Wasley in Summer Crush the Young Adult Anthology, which I read and reviewed in August 2015. Since I enjoyed her story, I searched around and found her first novel, The Seventh. This was a fast paced, action packed and an extremely well detailed story revolving around 7 young adults. So much happened throughout the story it kept me engaged and I really didn’t want to put it down. Mimi, who narrates the story, and Drew are the main characters but the other 5 kids play [...]

    11. I absolutely loved this book!I love reading YA as it takes you back to those teenage years where everything is both uncertain and exciting. The Seventh transported me effortlessly back to that place, with characters who felt like real people and a plot that made we wish I was a part of the gifted program.This is a genuinely good coming of age tale and I can't wait for the sequel.

    12. I'm not the target audience for this book aimed at teens, but loved it anyway! It was fun to watch Mimi blossom as she discovered her true self and to unravel with her the book's central mystery. I look forward to the sequel.

    13. I loved this book. Mimi and her friends are well written and beautiful characters, I can't wait to hear more from.The author packs a lot into 270 pages but gets the pace just right. I'm really looking forward to the sequel.An enthralling debut from SD Wasley.

    14. Wasley pulled me in from the get-go. A teen girl with ghosts who follow her around? Uh, what? Give me more?!?! Great tension--action, friend, romance, and otherwise. Looking forward to book 2!

    15. This is a fascinating story about a girl who's not really crazyeven if all her life people have been telling her she is. She sees and communicates with ghosts. As if that wasn't hard enough for Mimi, she transfers to a new school that specialises in dealing with children who have "problems" like hers. It's not a school entirely for exceptional children, though - a significant point of difference. There are plenty of students who don't see ghosts.Though it's a complete book with a distinct ending [...]

    16. The seventh by S.D Wasley5*****Review by LindaThis book has got to be the best YA paranormal book I've ever read. It has a fantastic storyline, brilliant young characters who all fit together like a glove. You get to see each character evolve into themselves. They have realistic gifts that fit which each individual. Yes it has all your usual teenager dramas but with unique twists. It keeps you on the edge with the suspense, wanting to find out what's coming next I just couldn't put it down. I ma [...]

    17. 4 Stars!I chose to review this book because the premise and blurb of the book was so interesting, I just knew I had to read it!If you're looking for something fun, unique with a different concept, then book is for you!The writing was flowy and I connected to the style immediately.The plot, characters and setting were absolutely riveting and I was hooked.Would I recommend? Yep! Also, I really like the cover.

    18. This books was a great read. The characters where believable and relatable despite being 'gifted'. The storyline was engaging and had me rushing to get the rift when I finished. Highly recommend!

    19. Mimi Alston is a seventeen year old girl who always has company. By company she has 3 ghosts who follow her around, but only she knows they are there. People in general think she is a little off, kids in school say she's the girl with imaginary friends. Her parents don't fully understand her . They move to a new town and she goes to a new school . On the advise of Doctor Mayor. Mimi desperately wants to have a normal life with friends. On her first day at school ,they placed her in a special pro [...]

    20. I was a put put off right at the beginning by the insta-love between Mimi and Drew, but I persevered and finished the book. I'm glad I did, because I enjoyed the story line; it is different than a lot of the paranormal young adult books out there.However, I really did roll my eyes and gag a bit everyone there was a lust scene between the two.I think that pre-teens and teens that read too many books like this (instant attraction, predetermined soul mates, electric shock every time they touch) get [...]

    21. How would you handle being a child and having ghosts as your friends? Mimi's friends have caused her nothing but problems throughout her life. Institutionalized and then sent to special school, Mimi learns a secret.e isn't weird! Such a great YA story about growing up and discovering you are special and not average! Paranormal phenomenons happen daily once her family relocates. Six others possess different abilities and Mimi soon realizes the town has secrets too. You will sit on the edge of you [...]

    22. There is a definite teen vibe to the "romantic" elements of the book, but the overall premise kept my interest. It was a good easy read. Not something deep or thought provoking, but an enjoyable "I don't want to have to think too hard about it" book.

    23. This wasn't my typical read, but I really enjoyed it. The author really nailed the typical teenage angst, but what really impressed me was the creative 'gifts' of the seven and how things tied together.Would definitely recommend.
