What I'm Waiting On...
Title: A Curious Tale of the In-Between
Author: Lauren DeStefano
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Publication Date: September 1, 2015
Pram Bellamy is special—she can talk to ghosts. She doesn’t have too many friends amongst the living, but that’s all right. She has her books, she has her aunts, and she has her best friend, the ghostly Felix.
Then Pram meets Clarence, a boy from school who has also lost a parent and is looking for answers. Together they arrive at the door of the mysterious Lady Savant, who promises to help. But this spiritualist knows the true nature of Pram’s power, and what she has planned is more terrifying than any ghost.
Lauren DeStefano is beloved by critics and readers alike, and her middle grade debut is lyrical, evocative and not to be missed.
Why I'm Waiting...
Ms. DeStefano has a serious online presence. I followed her on Twitter way before I even knew she had two book series published just because she promoted books all the time. I definitely think she's one cool person.
Aside from Lauren's online presence, I was really interested in this book, even though I haven't read any of Lauren's previous books. This one just really caught me because I talked to ghosts when I was a kid. In our first house, there was a ghost named Tony who I befriended, and he would even turn on music boxes when my baby sister cried. In our second house, there was a lady who roamed the top apartment of our duplex building that I'd talk to.
Needless to say, I believe in ghosts, so I'm really interested to see how this book (and series) goes. I have an ARC, so be sure to look out for a review soon!
