Overview

She plays for Team Spirit.

High school senior Tara Luna's got all the usual teen problems: a new school, her attraction to a hunky guy, feuds with the Mean Girls, being regarded as an oddball outsider-PLUS she has psychic powers, a duo of protective, meddlesome ghosts AND an angry, threatening teen girl ghost who wants Tara to solve her murder-or else.

Now you know why she calls this "my lunatic life."

Sharon Sala's books repeatedly make the big lists, including The New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher's Weekly lists, and she's been nominated for a RITA seven times, which is the romance writer's equivalent of having an Oscar or an Emmy nomination. MY LUNATIC LIFE is the first book in her Lunatic Life series for teen readers. Coming soon: THE LUNATIC DETECTIVE.

I find anything that is written by Sharon Sala is a 'must read'. She is a fantastic story teller. Looking forward to the follow-up story, Lunatic Detective. Happy to be sharing this with my daughters and grand daughters......

Review by Jen: My Lunatic Life is the first in Sharon Sala's new YA paranormal mystery series. Sala is a well-known romantic suspense author with 85 novels under her belt. And now she's trying her hand with YA fiction. As I read this book, I had to keep reminding myself that I was reading an uncorrected proof, review copy because there were some small things that should be caught during the final editing. But I found the premise of this series intriguing and this first book solid. Sala keeps the mystery in this book pretty simple since she's spending a lot of time introducing characters and world building. Tara's new in town, so it's perfect for us to meet people as she is, but we also get glimpses into her past and how her unusual upbringing has shaped who she is... a teenage psychic whose two best friends are ghosts. My only real issue with this book, as YA fiction, is the dialog. Keeping in mind that I'm in my mid-thirties, I found the dialog between the teenage characters to feel rather fake or forced. In one moment, the characters seemed to be quite mature and the next it's almost as if a "valley girl" possessed them. There was also some minor "head-hopping" (a particular pet peeve of mine) that jumped out at me. And I got overly tired with Tara's repetitious proving herself as physic (although probably not at frustrated as Tara gets). But I did enjoy the book, which was a quick read, and look forward to the next book to see what happens to Tara next.

I thought this was an excellent read. I love the way that Sharon shows how things are seen through a teenager. I have read several of her books and keep coming back for more!

I really like the way the characters were described...easy to relate to and real. Wish I could be psychic as well. Definitely recommended for a vacation read or something to just take you away for a few hours. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

Great teen book to adult. Fun to read likable characters. Alot of action in a short book. I enjoyed the other 2 in the series also. Plan to get any more if Ms Sala expands the series.
