Review - Whisper by Stacey R. Campbell

Hey y'all,

Today I'm reviewing Whisper (#2 in the Lakeview Series) by Stacey R. Campbell.

Summary From Goodreads: Henry’s first year at Lakeview Academy . . .

On a snowy January night, just days after a fire that nearly destroyed the school’s library, Elsie Stewart, daughter of the headmaster and founder of Lakeview Academy, dies slipping beneath the ice of frozen Clearwater Lake. Unable to right the wrongs she committed before her tragic death, Elsie’s spirit walks the halls of her father’s school, waiting for someone who can.

One hundred years later, while joining her sister’s friend Leigh to help clean out the school’s administration building before the big remodel, Halle stumbles upon Elsie’s hidden journal.
Obsessed with what she finds, Halle searches the school for clues that may lead to solving a century-old mystery. The only problem is that Halle also talks Calum Stewart, Leigh’s worst nightmare, into helping them.

Once Leigh and Calum are forced work together, sparks fly and no one around them, alive or dead, is left unaffected.

Review after the jump!

Review: Whisper is the second in the Lakeview Academy series by Stacey R. Campbell, the first being Hush which as it happens was one of my first ARCs I ever received through Netgalley. I loved the first book so I eagerly anticipated Whisper, and it does not disappoint! The Lakeview Academy series is perfect for ages 12 to 16, it has a nice mystery, this time featuring Halle the younger sister of Blakely from Hush, some romance, and a wonderful setting that leaps off the pages and reminds me of Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall series, except that Lakeview Academy is somewhere I wouldn't mind going while Hex Hall is a bit on the creepy side! I would definitely recommend this book.

Stars:4/5 Stars
