Read full description of the books Whispers from the Dead:Sarah has just moved to Houston thanks to her father's new promotion. She's leaving behind friends who think she's a freak since she claims that a shadow has been following her. A shadow that only she can see. After almost drowning, Sarah has a connection with the dead which proves to be detrimental in helping her make sense of the murder that occurred in her new home two years ago.
Like all of Joan Lowery Nixon's leads, Sarah is a strong female who's battling her own inner demons and fears. She suffers from panic attacks near water thanks to her near-death experience and she's hurt after her friends abandoning her. Nixon crafts a short murder mystery with the twist of Sarah's ability to communicate with the dead. This book goes fast, right up to the ending.
Unlike most murder mysteries, Sarah is quick on the uptake, figuring things out almost as quickly as I did--a refreshing change. She's joined by her new friend Dee Dee, a relentless gossip, and mysterious boy named Tony whom she likes.
A nice light story to fill in the gaps in your lazy summer days. Nixon delivers an enjoyable who-done-it. I read this as a way to transition from one long book to another--which is probably the best way to read a novel like this.
Read information about the authorAuthor of more than one hundred books, Joan Lowery Nixon is the only writer to have won four Edgar Allan Poe Awards for Juvenile Mysteries (and been nominated several other times) from the Mystery Writers of America. Creating contemporary teenage characters who have both a personal problem and a mystery to solve, Nixon captured the attention of legions of teenage readers since the publication of her first YA novel more than twenty years ago. In addition to mystery/suspense novels, she wrote nonfiction and fiction for children and middle graders, as well as several short stories. Nixon was the first person to write novels for teens about the orphan trains of the nineteenth century. She followed those with historical novels about Ellis Island and, more recently for younger readers, Colonial Williamsburg. Joan Lowery Nixon died on June 28, 2003—a great loss for all of us.
