Synopsis: When Dani was eight, she fell from a building. No one believed her claim that she was pushed by Rachel, her imaginary friend. It took years of therapy to convince Dani that Rachel was a product of her own mind.
Now fifteen, Dani wants to make it as a dancer. But a deadly freak accident sends her a terrifying message: Rachel is back, she's real, and she'll stop at nothing to kill Dani. Complicating matters is Jesse, the school bad boy who's being stalked by his own invisible childhood monster.
When Dani and Jesse join forces to learn why their tormentors are back, their investigation leads to a horrifying discovery - and the secret that binds them to each other.
Review: Damage is a wonderful debut novel by Ms. Parrish. Make sure to leave the lights on when you read this. It really intrigued me because I work in the research field. I enjoy good stories that incorporate research (for good or evil) into the plot - and Damage is an excellent book!! I was able to solidly connect with the characters and their emotions. Very high-paced and able to easily capture the imagination, Damage is a book you definitely want to pick up! I don't always wish for a sequel, but I really do hope that there is one this time!!
