This is a blog to focus on books I am currently reading - both new/fresh reads and to re-visit the books I loved as a child and young adult. (FYI: "Ketab" means book in Persian/Farsi)

Dying to Tell Me by Sherryl Clark
Once I started reading this book, I had trouble putting it down. I received this book (in .pdf format) for LT's Early Reviewers. This story, which would be perfect for tweens/young teens, starts off rather cliched in a way. . . a family whose dynamics and circumstances have changed are moving to a new town to start a new life. However, there is more at play here, particularly for the main character Sasha. She has a lot more going on than is on the surface, and one of her issues is that she doesn't want to be the embodiment of one of those "weird" shows on tv where the main characters can see dead people. Oh, and she finds out she can mentally speak with her dog. (That's my favorite part.) I love the mysteries in this book, and how they are resolved.
