Crossed Out - by Kim Baccellia

Teen Book Reviewer, NYIA from blog: Thoughts Of Someone Who Actually Cares

Amazon Blurb: (Buy Here)
Following the light can't be that hard, right? So why don't the dead just do it and leave Stephanie Stewart alone? However nothing is ever as simple as it should be, as Stephanie learns when her hidden 'gift' becomes more than a nuisance, quickly turning into a liability. If she can't learn to trust someone with her secret, the world as she knows it will go to hell. Literally. But if she doesn't choose wisely, she might just end up learning firsthand how hard it is to follow that light. Because she's next on the list to be crossed out.

TEEN Book REVIEWER, NYIA's comments:

Stephanie is a character I'd like for a friend. She is sassy, a little pessimistic and determined to do what she thinks is right - most of the time. I have always wondered about the people who made the crosses on the sides of the road. Now after reading this book I do think of them and look at them a whole lot differently then before. Of the male characters I can't really say I liked one more than the other. I pretty much connected with Stephanie the most. The air of tension and mystery had me turning the pages and I finished this book feeling satisfied. I give it a 4 out of 5 crosses.

Sounds great! I'm just now reading Kim's other book, Earrings of Ixtumea and enjoying it.

Thanks for posting about this one.
