Convince us to read the book:  I loved Rosemary Clement-Moore's characters. Daisy is very smart and snarky. I love how she's always determined to do the right thing. She always had a sense of humor, even in stressful situations.This is a very suspenseful book and I really got into it. One thing that I wasn't a big fan of was the whole "save the world" thing that was going on.
Memorable or Forgettable: It was very well written but kind of cliche.
Cover: The cover could be more unique. It's almost like every other book cover. It's just another a girl looking dramatic.
Age Range: 14 through 15
Quality: 3Q Readable
Popularity: 3P Some teen appeal
Annotation: Daisy Goodnight is a teenage girl that can talk to the dead. SHe's been able to do this since birth. She's so good at it that she assists the police with homicide cases. This book takes place in Minnesota where Daisy is helping the FBI solve a murder/kidnapping.
