The Extra Large Medium
2007. A paperback copy in very good condition.
Ever since she was a kid, Annie Colville has been talking to the Dead. She knows they're dead because they're always dressed in chocolate brown. And they're hanging around where Annie can see them because they're worried about the things they left undone. Their crucial unfinished business. Like where they left the key to the shed, or who should get the Crown Derby tea set. But Annie's grown up now, and things are getting serious. Especially after she falls for Evan Bees. It's hard enough to lose someone you love; but what if you know they could come back to you? And they just...don't? With this wonderful debut novel, Helen Slavin has taken the ghost story into a new dimension. Quirky, irreverent, moving and a little bit spooky, The Extra Large Mediumwill charm you completely-even as it's raising the hairs on the back of your neck.
