    AWESOME!!!

    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.

    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!

    Fun!

    I enjoyed this book. It's for young adults and I'm a little older, but it was fun. I enjoyed Kait's inner monologue. I laughed a bunch. It's a murder mystery too, but it's more fun than dark. I'm definitely on board for the second book!

    Great book!!!!!!

    This is a fantastic book with sad parts, and humorous parts. But overall, it is an amazing story about a girl who is the wierd one in high school. Yes, she has some strange sides. But in this book, you can definetley see that Kait has a good heart.

    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.

    Very entertaining abd delightful read. The main charaters were well thought out and fun to get to know. Loved the inner dialogue of Kait. Had some funny moments and some serious moments. Really liked how she dealt with everyday high school social problems. I would definately recommend this book for young adults up to whatever age!

    Well... Precious

    It was a wonderful book, turning from a fictional book to a mystery. Popular guy sovling the mystery of his sisters death with an unpopular girl! I truly couldnt put this book down. Now i would say this, it does have some words like make out,sex, sexuality and stuff like that but this book doesnt really talk about or get into detail. Its a teen book about a teens life. Really relatible. It had a very sweet and romantic ending , i could read this again. Im getting more books like this. I would give it the highest number i could think of. I highly recommend this book to everyone (watch out for those words ;) ). To be honest I dont get why in the world this is free. This book is way to good. But im glad i read it! Hoped i helped!

    Fun, Quirky Mystery

    A very enjoyable book not limited to young adults. I am a senior citizen and loved the rememberances of high school. First love emotions have not changed. The bonus was the references to other books. Thanks to the author, I will be reading Anne of Green Gables soon.

    AMAZING

    This book is a great murder mystery. Details are plentiful and the characters are great. Scary but not too scary. Don't try to figure out the murderer because you will not get it. Ending is... surprising. Any teen or adult will love it! I absolutely recommend this Milda Harris murder mystery. Overall, great job. Very enjoyable!

    Kritters Ramblings

    Every now and then a YA book review is sent my way and I accept because with each read, I enjoy the YA genre more and more. This is another example of a highly entertaining YA read that us adults can also enjoy. From the beginning the reader is introduced to Kait, a high schooler who has lost her mom to cancer and finds a connection with her when she crashes funerals. This may sound crazy, but when she attends a funeral she ends up in the middle of a murder mystery that makes her confront all sorts of fears.

    I absolutely love books that have twists and turns and the reader is kept in the loop throughout. Nothing like the killer being a character that shows up in the end - no good. Not the case with this one, this author had the ability to give out facts, but let the reader take their imagination to find out who our killer is in the end. This is worth reading to the very last page.

    A book that is perfect for the high school reader who loves a little mystery, a little romance and may even be a reluctant reader. A warning to the the young readers, there is mention of heroin overdoses and through the reading, these are proved wrong. I in no way condone the use of any illegal substances, but I think that the topic is covered well in this book.
