My Thoughts on Abnormally Abbey by Allan Evans
Abbey is a fourteen year old who, whether she likes it or not, attracts ghosts. She calls herself a spook magnet.
When Abbey is sent to a summer camp, her father thinks he is sending her to a nice, easy bible camp for her to spend her time. But he messed up and accidentally sent her to Camp ToughLove, a bootcamp. At first Abbey tries to get out of the camp as she struggles with the training, but when a cute boy arrives, she decides to stay.
But there are strange things happening at this camp and soon Abbey and her friends are forced to band together in a life or death situations that changes things forever.
This was such a cute tale! I loved that the main character was obsessed with songs from the 80’s. She had a song for every situation she found herself in, no matter if that was an upbeat and light situation, or the more harrowing.
My Favorite Passages from Abnormally Abbey
The third step let out a slow creak as I eased my full weight onto it. The fourth step didn’t do me any favors either, not that it made a difference. Someone — or something —was waiting for me.
“The thing is, Abbey, there will always be falling cows. Life isn’t always going to be smooth and predictable. In your life, cows will drop. You won’t see them coming, and you won’t know what happened until it’s over. The only thing you can do is accept it and roll with whatever life throws your way —or drops on you. Having the ability to cope and change directions at a moment’s notice might just be the think that keeps you alive.”
