In the Middle is centered around Lucy (Lucille Torres) who is forced to move in with her Aunt Perdita after she loses her parents in a car crash. Aside from the physical injuries, she also suffers emotional injuries as she was the one behind the wheel when it happened. Lucy discovers another kind of life in Mitte (her aunt's town). In this creepy town full of mysteries, she meets Oliver, her "knight in shining armour," always helping a damsel in distress. Oliver cautions her of a looming danger which makes her fearful of the unknown. With Oliver, she slowly discovers the answers to some mysteries, but one still remains. Will she make it out alive?

In the Middle is a YA paranormal fiction that possesses its own unique style. Author S.J. Henderson knows exactly how to use the right words without giving too much away, and this leaves you wanting more. I really enjoyed the storyline with its twists and turns. The words "....while I decide if she's planning to eat my soul or something" show that S.J. Henderson knows the right time to infuse humor, which places the book somewhere in the middle, not a stand-up comedy though, and not too serious or scary. S.J. Henderson has a vivid imagination and keeps unfolding mysteries bit by bit with every chapter, which makes In the Middle a great narrative full of suspense and intrigue .
