Three Quarters Dead by Richard Peck, 193 pages, read by Leslie, on 01/05/2012

“Sophomore loner Kerry is overjoyed when three popular senior girls pick her to be in their clique, until a shocking accident sets off a string of supernatural occurrences that become more and more threatening.”

Not the type of book I’ve come to expect from the author of Fair Weather and The Librarian Lies Here.  To say it departs from his usual fare does not quite cover it.  Usually I can see the twist coming several chapters before the author reveals it and I did not see this one coming at all.  A very good book from an author who shows he can keep up with topics that teens will enjoy.
