After she's hit by lightning at a wedding, twelve-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: she can hear dead people. Among them, there's her overopinionated Bubby Dora; a prissy fashion designer; and an approval-seeking clown who livens up a séance. With Bubby Dora leading the way, these and other sweetly imperfect ghosts haunt Lilah through seventh grade, and help her face her one big fear: talking to-and possibly going to the seventh-grade dance with-her crush, Andrew Finkel.
Joanne Levy can usually be found at her computer, channeling her younger self into her books, or at the park, throwing a ball for her black Labrador Retriever, Zoe. She also shares her home with two cats, an African Grey parrot, her amazing husband, and a very large supply of chocolate. This is her debut novel. www.joannelevy.com
