Adventures in Funeral Crashing is the perfect YA novel! It's extremely funny and it has the perfect amount of mystery, suspense and romance. I loved the main character Kait Lennox. She's witty and the perfect example of a high school girl. Kait is an outcast in school who finds herself side by side with the most popular boy in school, Ethan. Both are searching for his sister's murderer. I really loved the narrative voice throughout the book. It made it highly entertaining. Ethan is definitely a cutie and the perfect love interest for sixteen year old Kait. The storyline is unique and it keeps you guessing until the very end! Harris is a fantastic writer and her characters are wonderful. I look forward to reading more from Milda Harris.

I was fortunate enough to make the cut for reviewing this book for R2R and in no way does this affects my review¿

Adventures in Funeral Crashing¿ Mother verses Daughter, the skirmish for control of the book pursues¿ need I say much more.

It has certainly been a challenge keeping this book in my possession, as my 11- year old daughter Macy would snatch it away every time I turned my back.

We both were drawn to the book; by what you might ask. Why the cover art of course. No it not some out of this world work of art but, a basic child like sketch of a girl in a skirt wearing tennis shoes. Macy thought it was just cute and it reminded me of a girl stuck in the awkward stage of not a child and not a young woman who has discovered¿ lawd help us¿ b.o.y.s.

Not having first read a description of the book the title alone lead me to think it was a paranormal zombie story or a twisted retelling of The Dead Zone¿ Macy on the other hand thought it was going it was going book version to television¿s The Ghost Whisper or Medium. As our guess would have it, we were wrong.

It was defiantly not a paranormal read yet it held not only my attention but that of Macy as well. It was packed full of creepy energetic mystery that was just so downright eatable. Which is why I found myself battling with 11-year old for the right to read.

Milda Harris did an excellent job at bring the teenage character to life. Kids today are just too jaded and are missing out just being kids and experiencing just what that means. Yes, some Macy included may think the kids are immature at time but in my humble opinion¿ kids need more time being kids and MH delivers that option in Adventures in Funeral Crashing.

Both Macy and I cannot wait to see if the story continues and we expect more from this talented author.

    Great Teen Read! Very Fun!

    I liked this book, it was very cute and a quick read. Definitively worth it.

    The Ms. Harris did a great job keeping the dialog modern and events current. This was not my typical Paranormal YA book, in fact there are no paranormal elements to it but I still enjoyed it. I think the characters seemed a bit immature for high School students but it would be a perfect book for junior high school kids and teens. They would enjoy reading something with the older kids in it but also would not me exposed to any situations suited for the older crowd.

    It had a mystery surprise at the end and would recommend for anyone looking to share a book with their teen either to read with or give as a gift.

    As always thank you to the author and Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! read to review program!

    Not a spoiler

    Very good book overall, the only bad thing was the suttle foreshadowing.it was a predictable ending once all of it came together.other than that,it had everything else you would want in a book: adventure (hence the name), romance, humor, mystery,suspense and developed characters.
