Review: "Exorcising Aaron Nguyen" by Lauren Harris #Millroadacademy

Exorcising Aaron Nguyen by Lauren Harris is a paranormal mystery novella and the first in a series, The Millroad Academy Exorcists:


What's a little murder between friends?

The murder of Millroad Catholic Academy's resident genius, Aaron Nguyen, shuts down student life at the boarding school in rural North Carolina...for about a week. With the resilience of youth, the student body bounces back, and the memory of murder is nothing but a streamer of caution tape fluttering in the breeze. Unfortunately for them, Aaron's spirit has some resilience as well. 

Hoping for spontaneous romantic combustion with her ghost-seeing best friend Hiroki, school gossip journalist Georgia Collins agrees to help bring Aaron's murderers to justice and set the vengeful spirit free...but it's not quite the close encounter she's hoping for. 


First off, Exorcising Aaron Nguyen is both dramatic and funny. Even the chapter titles are hilarious. Harris portrays the the frivolity of high school existence through the eyes of large-as-life characters with big hearts and big mouths. Throw in the ghosts of dead students and a little murder mystery and you have the entertaining adventure that is Exorcising Aaron Nguyen.

Exorcising Aaron Nguyen is also available as an audiobook. Lauren Harris narrates with a pleasant, emotive voice that matches perfectly with this first-person novella. Her intonation, measured pace, and clear accent carry the story along through its exciting ending. Lauren Harris is an accomplished narrator who had voiced many stories on EscapePod, Drabblecast, The Dunesteef, and Walk the Fire.

You can pick up Exorcising Aaron Nguyen at [Amazon] or [Audible]. Give it some love on [Goodreads].

I'm excited to read the next installment, The Girl in Acid Park, available now for pre-order at [Amazon].
