It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed and it’s the worst day of her life.

Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit.

She tries to convince everyone she’s fine—despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again. Everyone thinks she’s crazy. Everyone except Lydia, that is. Another patient with some special abilities …

This was a short, enjoyable read chronicling Kaylee’s trip to the psychiatric ward after her episode. I think it captures a teenager’s confusion at waking up in a psych unit accurately, and I found Kaylee’s story heart warming.

The story adds little to my experience of My Soul to Take (#1 in the Soul Screamers series), but augments it well and conveys Kaylee’s tenacity.

My copy of My Soul to Lose is in Soul Screamers Volume One:
