Book Trailer:

Now for Provex City, here is the super pretty cover and the blurb.
Fifteen-year-old Oliver Grain begins his school year fighting off bullies, learning about the boy who committed suicide in his room, and trying to understand why his history teacher, Mr. Gordon, has taken such a personal interest in him.

Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe you can make bullies simply disappear? Do you believe you can walk through walls?

Mr. Gordon tells Oliver: "When you truly believe anything is possible, you will be able to open doors where there were only walls." And one of those doors leads Oliver to Provex City, which puts him in far greater danger than he can possibly fathom.
This book was an interesting read from beginning to end.  I always enjoy a YA book with a male narrator.  Oliver is a really endearing narrator too, which was great.  The characters really make this book because they just draw you into the story and bring it to life.  It feels more like you are there with them than just reading a book.  This book is so unique!  There is nothing like it that I have read.  It has ghosts but more than that it involved belief and planes of consciousness.   I don't even want to try and describe it because you just need to experience it for yourself.  I sincerely can not wait to read more!  I highly recommend this book!  I will say that there are some possible trigger issues in this book.  There are instances of bullying, smoking, drinking and blood.  If those are triggers of yours, then be warned, but overall this book is a wonderful example of YA literature.

There is a tour wide giveaway going on as well! You can find the giveaway below and you can check out the rest of the tour here.
