Actually I had purchased the book for my daughter and read it for myself. I could not put the book down. It is packed with suspense, supernatural, family issues and lots of secrets! Great book and can't wait to read the next book that follows!

Amongst the slums of Gypsum, Missouri, sixteen-year-old Hailey Tarbell is counting the days to her 18th birthday. Hailey's life is hard. Between her abusive drug dealing guardian grandmother, and her complete loser status her only light is her foster bother Chub. Oddly even in her tight knit Trashtown community she's considered an outcast by the the outcasts, the absolute lowest rank of her small town cast system. Hailey has always been freakishly super healthy and athletic and works extra hard to hide it. But something else is happening to Hailey. She can heal others. The storyline starts to develop when Hailey has an overwhelming compulsion to heal a fellow classmate, plus the ability to accomplish it. The strangest thing is everyone else seems to know whats going on but her, and no ones sharing. Things starts to pick up when Hailey's long lost aunt Prairie comes to the rescue. As Hailey digs deeper into her families' past to understand what's happening to her she starts to unravel secrets and lies that will lead to danger and death. Banished is a unique twist of folklore and fairytale. Unfortunately I found the story a bit slow in the beginning and the love interest entering too late within this installment causing the building tension of a budding relationship to fall short This book was really all about the setup and backstory. It's a good start. I am however looking forward to a sequel that will spend more time exploring the Hailey's hinted love affair to be.

This book is an exciting page turner full of mystery and suspense. It is a book to be enjoyed by any mystery lover regardless of age. I hope there are more like this in the future. Sophie Littlefield is an excellent author.

What can I say about this book other than I love it. The plot was very intriguing and held me from page to page. Hailey is not your average kid. She is always being picked on and teased by the other kids. She has been told lies about her past and know nothing. One day after saying a student from death does she start to question things. She begins to get closer to the answer when her long lost aunt comes looking for her. There are other people, dangerous people looking for her too. Let me tell you that this is one unique book. The plot and paranormal parts is great. It is nothing that I have seen before. What I like the most about it was how Ms. Littlefield wrote the book with her characters coming to life literally from the page. You can feel the emotions just dripping off the page. I felt for Hailey and loved her strong, endless devotion to her brother. Even with everything that she has been through, she stays strong and overcomes. Her family is mess up. They talked down to her and don't let her know anything. Her aunt is just a crazy old mean bat who is bitter and she deserve what she got. (Sorry, had to say it) Hailey's fought for what she believed in and let no one stand in her way. I love this girl! The paranormal part is good. I am intrigued by the Banished and I am hoping to learn more about them in the second book.

With a unique storyline (at leat unique to me) Banished put a twist in the average folklore/modern day/decended family line story and had just the right taste of adventure and small town.
