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.
"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
"All the ups and downs are portrayed with honesty and wonderful humor. Middle school girls are sure to relate and will probably see themselves somewhere in this story. Purchase is recommended. Look for the next title from this talented first-time author, as it is sure to be eagerly awaited by readers." Reviewer: Sylvia Firth - Children's Literature
"[SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE] is tightly-written and fast-paced, the dialogue is clever and funny, and the story flows well. While there are some discussions of kissing and dating, there is nothing in it to make it inappropriate for a fifth-or sixth grade girl, and Small Medium at Large is a perfect read for every girl who is struggling or has ever struggled to fit in. Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine
