Ghost Hand by Ripley Patton

Ghost Hand by Ripley PattonOlivia’s ghost hand started causing problems during her Calculus test, with the new guy in school staring in fascination. Irritated with his scrutiny, Olivia tried to distract him, but suddenly her hand began pulsating and growing larger, stretching out towards Passion’s back, who was sitting in front of her. The new guy quickly grabbed Olivia’s wrist until her hand cooled down, and once it returned to its abnormal normal, she noticed a baggie with some shiny gray sharp objects on her lap.

The new guy—Marcus—somehow understood about Olivia’s ghost hand and seemed to take it in stride. Still, the shock of discovering that Passion, the preacher’s daughter, was a cutter, was enough to upset Olivia so that she did not think to ask Marcus how he knew what to do to reel her hand back in. As Olivia walked through the cemetery to visit her father’s grave, the razor blades began to chatter as if they were trying to tell her something.

I can only imagine Olivia’s difficulties with her ghost hand, a condition called Psyche Sans Soma, which is described as a rare birth defect. Olivia has recently lost her father, and her mother seems to be less than nurturing, so she feels quite alone except for her friend Emma. For some reason, she begins to trust Marcus, and when he tells her she is being followed, Olivia believes him, and the two of them sneak out of the cemetery unnoticed by the man following them. Ghost Hand is an interesting story, with some unexpected twists, and showed Olivia’s inner strength and determination to find out why she was being targeted.

About Mary

My name is Mary, and I’m a serious book junkie, with a large personal collection of reading material. I’m fascinated by ghosts, the paranormal, and true crime stories. I love discovering the possibilities in the next world and am curious about the reasons people do what they do in this one. I’ve been reading since the age of 3, and always have a book or two or three going. I’m an elementary school substitute teacher, and I always have a book or two in my “bag of tricks”. My new favorite is “Frog in a Bog”. My husband and daughter do not share my passion for books, and secretly think I’ve gone over the top with my collecting and reading habits, but I firmly believe there are worse habits I could have!
