Possessed Rating: 5


Author: Kate Cann

In Possessed by Kate Cann, sixteen year old Rayne needs to get away—away from the crowds of London, from her demanding mother, and from her controlling boyfriend. She finds the perfect job to take her away from it all—a live-in waitress at a quiet country estate called Morton’s Keep. The estate offers her the peace and quiet she’s always wanted. But, of course, no place is perfect. And Morton’s Keep has its fair share of haunting secrets.


A Spooky Place to Stay

When she arrives, Rayne is given the choice between a spooky attic bedroom inside the estate, or a secluded cabin called the Old Sty right next to the woods. Rayne chooses the lesser of two evils: the Sty. But nighttime on the estate is dangerous, and Rayne’s boss, Mrs. Driver, warns her never to leave her door unlocked.


Unusual Friends

Soon Rayne sees the eeriness surrounding the estate, and hears rumors about its haunting past. People say that the walls once ran with blood. Lonely, Rayne makes a new group of friends in town. But they’re an unusual crowd, obsessed with Morton’s Keep’s secrets. She even falls for a boy named St. John, despite the bad things her co-worker says about him.


A Life-altering Decision

Rayne must decide whether to stay at Morton’s Keep and challenge the evils that are resurfacing from the past, or return to the life she happily left behind.


The Bottom Line

Possessed by Kate Cann is impossible to put down. It’s eerie, exciting and suspenseful. You’ll easily relate to Rayne’s need to escape, especially if you’ve experienced big city life and controlling relationships. So if you’re into vampire books, ghost stories or teen paranormal fiction of any sort, you’ll definitely enjoy Possessed.

At this age you've just hit puberty and sure some of you might be more mentally matured, but you're thirteen, you're now being exposed to those kinds of things and your hormones might start kicking in and you'll maybe feel different ways to different genders and people but i really do think that thirteen is a much too young age to decide, and to "come out". I respectfully disagree. this is how I think of it. Being gay happens it's not like you wake up one day and you want to be gay. It justs happens, some people come out when there younger like around 13 ish others come out sometime later. It is a confusing subject and because it's only relitvaly new concept. I think personally people should just accept the fact because for many people it's hard for people to come out because of how people look at them. People should leave an open mind because with that at least you can help and give support to those who are struggling to figure this out. Not to take this personally everyone is entitled to their own opinions this is just an explication to hopefully make it somewhat clearer. I am not gay myself but i have many friends who are so I opinion will be different than yours which is perfectly acceptable.
