I'm not sure if this is the place to put this, so I apologize if it's in the wrong place.

Anyway, what I'm looking for are names of books that have skeptical characters who find out they have magical abilities and/or have paranormal/supernatural experiences.

The MC in my manuscript has a really hard time accepting things she can't explain like ghosts, psychics, magical powers, etc. It takes her a long time to figure it out and come to terms with it.

The problem is that most books I've read start with the character already knowing what they are. That doesn't help me much.

I'm having difficulty balancing her skepticism with the need to move forward in the story. To make her accept it too fast seems unnatural, but I'm worried that a reader might want to slap her in the face and say "Get over yourself. It's real."

I thought if I read some other books like mine I'd be able to see how they made overcame the character's skepticism.

Specifically, my character displayed abilities as a child and was forced by her mother to repress them. Now they are coming back but she doesn't remember anything from childhood. She communicates with a woman whom others presume is a ghost (but is really an astral projection from the past) and she has her own out-of-body experiences. She also has very real dreams and visions. Instead of seeing these things for what they are, she believes she is hallucinating and losing her mind.
Anyone know any books like this?
Thanks in advance.
