Today on my blog I have the A Guide To The Other Side tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, guest post, and giveaway.
A boy and his ghostly twin sister work together to pass messages from the beyond in this funny paranormal debut.
There are a few things you should know about Baylor Bosco: He’s thirteen-years-old, he has a twin sister, and he really does NOT like ghosts…which is problematic because he’s a medium and sees ghosts everywhere.
Oh, and his twin sister, Kristina? She’s a ghost too.
They’ve been working as a pair for years, expertly relaying messages from ghosts to their still-living loved ones. Baylor’s even managed to come up with an introductory phrase—one that he has to use far too often.
But when a strange ghost shows up close to Halloween, a grown man, covered in a sheet, with only his black leather shoes showing from the bottom, Baylor starts to wonder if something else has taken notice of him. And when his sister goes missing, somehow ghost-napped, he’s forced to figure out the truth about the Sheet Man and his sister’s disappearance, all without his usual ghostly ambassador.
When I saw the synopsis for this book I jumped at the chance to read it and I am so glad I did as I really enjoyed this book. I've read other ghost books before but not like this one where the hero's dead twin is his spirit guide. I really liked both main characters. At times I found myself forgetting that Kristina was actually dead. She has such personality that it is easy to forget that Baylor is the only that can see or hear her. Some of my favorite scenes are with her when she is giving her opinion on Baylor's friends when they are at school together. This was definitely a great read right around Halloween. I highly recommend this book to anyone. I can't wait to read more of Baylor and Kristina. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
Robert Imfeld grew up in Orlando, FL, and, like any self-respecting Floridian, evenly split his free time between the beach and Disney World. After graduating from the University of Florida, he put his journalism degree to good use by saving lives at a luxury resort (some call this “lifeguarding”) in Orlando, interning/brewing coffee at a production company in L.A., and managing finances for country songwriters in Nashville. He now lives in New York City, where he works on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid marketing team by day and writes kids' books by night. Follow him on Twitter @robbyimfeld.
Favorite Books Read This Year
I’m cheating for this topic. Even though I’ve read more than 10 books this year, it’s been a year of total chaos for me and I didn’t get nearly as much reading done as I should have – and definitely not nearly enough to responsibly put together a list of my favorites for the year. So, instead, I’m going to list ten different books I own that have beautiful covers I’ve so enjoyed staring at for the past year and which I very much look forward to reading one day…very soon…hopefully.
1. Pax (Such a great cover. Give Jon Klassen all the awards.)
2. Big Magic
3. Live from New York: The Complete, Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live
4. Anna and the Swallow Man
5. All the Light We Cannot See (I know….I know.)
6. The Rest of Us Just Live Here (I scored a signed copy when I was visiting New Hampshire.)
7. The Underground Railroad (actually, I’m on page 4 of this one…so, I’m doing pretty well…)
8. Shadow Scale (the sequel to Serafina, a delightful dragon-filled fantasy.)
9. The Inquisitor’s Tale (I got my copy at a panel I did with Adam, and I got a signed, personalized copy like a true fan.)
10. Six of Crows (Those black paper edges!)
