Clare's world is pretty messed up. Her dad smokes, her grandparents are dead, and the pastor's wife is deathly ill. A talking dog named Horus, whom she has always considered a friend, is showing an evil side. Then the pastor's wife, Millie, dies, and Judy - Clare's sister - gets sick! It's not a great life. However, at Millie's funeral, Clare meets a man named Change. After that her life starts to...well, change! She learns that she is a supernatural link, a person who still has enough imagination to see spirits. Together, she and Change get rid of Horus and heal Judy, but can they save the pastor too?


I was not expecting this to be a religious book. It starts kind of slow, but then it gets better. I like the idea of Change being another name for the Holy Spirit because that's what he does - changes things! I thought it was funny that Horus the dog shared some characteristics with the Egyptian god Horus from Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles. Arrogance, greed, selfishness - all shared traits. This was a really good book. I think that if an Atheist read this, they would start believing in God.
