Love Falling Boy! Woo!

Also love Justina, but have yet to read Girl, Overboard. Woo anyway!

Alison McGhee is an amazing author. Falling Boy was impressive.

Justina is fantastic. If you loved Nothing but the Truth (and a few little white lies), you will love Girl Overboard.

I live not far from Lily Dale and so have been interested in the Wendy Corsi Staub book. What did you think?

I liked it well enough. If you liked Jude Watson's two psychic mysteries and/or Wendy's adult mysteries, you'll like this.
