The secret life of Sparrow Delaney by Suzanne Harper
Sparrow Delaney is the seventh daugter of a seventh daughter, and there are seven girls in her family (six sisters) and her mom and Grandma Bee. They live in a bit of a messy household, and they are all very spiritual. Sparrow can see ghosts since she was five. At the first schoolday of tenth grade, she meets her new classmate Jack Dawson. And a ghost, wich she is not sure of who he was in his former live.
When Jack tells her about his brother Luke who suddenly dissapeared years ago, Sparrow discovers that the ghost who is following her is no one else than Luke.
He won't leave till Sparrow helps him to move along to the 'other side'. And that means she has to tell Jack that she can see Luke's ghost, but will he believe her and can she tell Jack who she is going to like more and more that his brother is dead?
Once you start reading in The Secret Life of Sparrow Delaney, you can't stop.
I thought this was a real good and very original novel. Mostly I find books that have a story about a ghost and a spiritual side confusing, but this one wasn't at all. It was really funny and very entertaining, and Sparrow is just fabulous to read about. Fun and light read about a teenage medium, hilarious! Suzanne Harper also wrote The Juliet Club, wich I have reviewed here and two Hannah Montana books, wich I hope to review someday too!
