Dysfunctional: Dark Imagination (Book 2)

By McKenzie Rae All Rights Reserved ©

Fantasy / Adventure

Blurb

Senior year is stressful for everyone, but Reuben, Sally, and Theo have more to worry about than the average senior. Peculiar things start happening. Odd strangers appear in Coon Falls. Some of these strangers are listless and zombie-like, while others seem to have superpowers just like the unlikely trio at Coon Falls High. And by the looks of things, these people aren't interested in making friends. To make matters more complicated, Jane's imagination is growing steadily out of control.

Prologue

PHILIP Darning knew he would be tested. He just didn’t realize it would happen on the very first day of the school year.

He sat at his new desk facing a male student. Philip rubbed the back of his hand where the student’s fingers had gripped it in a handshake. The boy had pale blonde hair and sharp blue eyes. His name was Reuben Skinner. He was a senior this year, and over the course of his high school career he had accumulated an impressive list of misdeeds and strange behavior. He even spent the majority of the previous year institutionalized.

Philip was not entirely sure why Reuben Skinner came to see him. He tried asking the boy a few probing questions to see if he could weed out the reason for this visit, but Reuben just continued to study the new guidance counselor without making a peep.

After an awkward fifteen-minute conversation—one-sided on Philip’s part—Reuben smiled and stood up. “Yep, I think you’ll do.”

Given Reuben’s scrutiny, Philip suspected the boy was sizing him up. He wasn’t terribly surprised by this. Based on his history, Philip had expected Reuben Skinner to test his boundaries and see what he could get away with. He just hadn’t expected him to remain silent the whole time. All the same, he smiled pleasantly at the boy.

“Wanted to make sure I was good enough to work here?”

“Something like that,” said Reuben. At Philip’s office door, he paused. “Oh, but you might want to keep a lid on those swinger parties you and your wife attend. I’m not judging your lifestyle, but you do work with impressionable high schoolers. The PTA doesn’t look very kindly on those types of extracurricular activities.” Philip blanched. Reuben grinned at him and winked. “Welcome to Coon Falls, Mr. Darning.”

noah_yeonya: I really didn't expect the ending to be that way, but I figured this story wouldn't have a happy ending. It just seems too sad and miserable for Anna because she only felt and experienced a love from her other half for only a short period of time, but it's still okay for me.But I definitely think...

Rachel Wollaston: This story definitely deserves all its positive reviews--I devoured the whole thing in one sitting!

turtles_101: I love the book but they way the author did the ending was a little to abrupt almost as if they were trying to end it as fast a they could. Other than that I did enjoy the book.

Rose: The book is great I actually read it more than once. It's so great

Shaun: The story is great and I would like to continue reading but I can't do that if you're not gonna continue writing. Even though Mason and Amooti doesn't interact that much I could already feel the chemisty.

lavendercotton: When I first started this book I was hooked I knew I had to finish this book, I'm not big on reading. Because it's hard for me to find a book I can be hooked on to, but the first five minutes of reading I was hooked. After that, I knew I had to read more.

speedangel1973: Twists and turns all over the place, definitely keeps you interested and on your toes!!!
