Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where book bloggers get to showcase the upcoming titles they’re excited about. I love this meme because it helps me know what soon to be released books to add to my To Read List!
The book I’m highlighting this week is Small Medium at Large by Joanne Levy. A few months ago I saw this book get some notice on a few other blogs so I’ve had my eye on it for a little while now and it is scheduled to be released July 3, 2012 (my husband’s birthday!!).
After she’s hit by lightning at a wedding, twelve-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: she can hear dead people. Among them, there’s her over opinionated Bubby Dora; a prissy fashion designer; and an approval-seeking clown who livens up a séance. With Bubby Dora leading the way, these and other sweetly imperfect ghosts haunt Lilah through seventh grade, and help her face her one big fear: talking to—and possibly going to the seventh-grade dance with—her crush, Andrew Finkel.
Doesn’t this sound like a cute middle grades read? I love the idea of gaining a supernatural gift a lightning strike – it sounds so superhero-esque!
Now, I do have a review Advanced Reader Copy that the lovely Joanne Levy sent my way (THANKS SO MUCH!) so keep your eye posted in July for a Small Medium at Large Giveaway and interview with the author! I can’t wait to get started reading this one!
In the mean time, check out Joanne Levy’s blog and website for more news on Small Medium at Large!
