Summary

After she's hit by lightning at a wedding, 12-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: She can hear dead people. Among them, there's the 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.

"In a fresh, frank, and funny first-person voice, Lilah tells of her ghostly encounters from the perspective of a normal Jewish girl coping with abnormal powers. Droll middle school drama." (Kirkus)
