The Secret Life of Sparrow Delaney

by Suzanne Harper

Sparrow Delaney is perfectly normal—at least on the outside. What she doesn’t want her new high school peers to know is that she lives in a house cluttered with old and bizarre objects with her large family of mediums, and that she herself, the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, has been talking to ghosts since she was five. Oh yeah, and she has not one, not two, but three bossy spirit guides who are always meddling with her life.
But Sparrow is hard-pressed to keep her secrets when a new ghost shows up at school and won’t leave her alone, and her cute-but-moody partner, Jack, wants to write about Lily Dale, New York for their history project.
Soon, though, Sparrow begins to think that Jack has his own secrets he’s trying to forget by attending a new school. They might just be more alike than Sparrow first thought.

The Secret Life of Sparrow Delaney was a light, enjoyable read that had enough humorous observations, over-the-top characters, and depth to keep the fluff at bay.
