If you’ve ever been a member of a complicated family, this book is for you (yeah, so that’s everybody). Ellen Hopkins, famous for books such as Crank, which deals with complex and mature topics for teens, gives us a middle grade book that’s not easy to forget.
Hilarious and off-the-wall moments abound in this fun novel. It does talk about middle school “liking” and the drama that goes with that, which makes it a good fit for both boys and girls.
I had heard about the book Ghost and seen it during my weekly trips to the bookstore. However, when two fictional kids in The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise (another great middle grade read) discussed it in the story, I checked it out at the library.
