from beyond

Small Medium at Large by Joanne Levy 
is a book I know I would have loved when I was 11 or 12.

It's about 12 year-old Lilah Bloom, who right in chapter one gets struck by lightning. By chapter two, she realizes that because of this, she can hear dead people; she can talk to ghosts.

Lilah isn't so sure about this. She thought it was very weird. She asked her dead grandmother:
"What's it like to be dead?...
There was a long pause. So long, I began to think she was gone, when she suddenly said, "I'm sorry but I can't tell you."
This book made me think... What would I do if I could hear dead people? What would you do? What would you ask them? Who would come looking for you to give you a message from 'beyond'?
