The below review and background summary are compliments of my sister Cecilia. She is in 6th grade and love to read. She is also her school's president and an awesome little sister. Please enjoy her just as amazing review of Small Medium at Large.
Background: This book is about a 12 year old girl named Lilah Bloom. In the story Lilah is struck by lightning and when struck develops a strange talent, she can speak to and hear the dead. When she receives the gift she immediately gets to speak to her dead grandmother Bubby Dora and some other interesting ghosts help Lilah through some tough times like producing a fashion show. Along with her extraordinary talent she also has to deal with her everyday middle school life including her love life and that definitely puts a lot of pressure on Lilah’s hands. 

Review: I thought Small Medium at Large was a really entertaining book. I enjoyed the character’s fascinating personalities. I loved how all the characters had distinct and unique traits. Though I think the author should have added a certain town, state, or country just to be a bit more specific. Also, I enjoyed the different types of conflict that were placed in the story, like the relationship between Lilah and her soon to be friend Dolly Madison.*SPOILER ALERT*  One more thing, I enjoyed the twist at the end with Lilah’s dad and Andrew’s mom, I thought it was a clever and creative thing to do at the end of the book and it was a smart way to give Lilah’s single dad a date that he enjoys.  

Copy was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
