A boy and his ghostly twin sister work together to pass messages from the beyond in this funny paranormal debut.
There are a few things you should know about Baylor Bosco: He’s thirteen-years-old, he has a twin sister, and he really does NOT like ghosts…which is problematic because he’s a medium and sees ghosts everywhere.
Oh, and his twin sister, Kristina? She’s a ghost too.
They’ve been working as a pair for years, expertly relaying messages from ghosts to their still-living loved ones. Baylor’s even managed to come up with an introductory phrase—one that he has to use far too often.
But when a strange ghost shows up close to Halloween, a grown man, covered in a sheet, with only his black leather shoes showing from the bottom, Baylor starts to wonder if something else has taken notice of him. And when his sister goes missing, somehow ghost-napped, he’s forced to figure out the truth about the Sheet Man and his sister’s disappearance, all without his usual ghostly ambassador.

The Most Random, Spontaneous Thing Robert Imfeld Has Ever Done...
Oh, this topic is easy since it just happened. I recently got a new job and had a week off between my last day and my first day, and I wanted to take a trip somewhere. A responsible person would have used the weeks before their last day to plan out a trip and book tickets, but sadly, I am not a responsible person. Instead, I wound up hunting for airfare at 1 a.m. on the day before my last day, trying to piece together an itinerary that 1) made sense and 2) did not cost one million dollars.
I booked four separate flights (the first of which took off the very next night!) to Sweden, Scotland, and Denmark, and then had to find accommodations, which was a delirious process that finally concluded at 4 a.m. I got three hours of sleep before work and then woke up in a panic that I’d made a terrible mistake because holy crap I was leaving for Europe tomorrow and had nothing ready and I was going alone since it’s hard to find an international travel buddy on less than 24 hours’ notice and I was visiting three cities in six days?!?! Cue a rush of errands – doing laundry, getting a haircut, shopping for travel necessities, and, most importantly, researching the cities. I was truly going in blind since I’d picked everything based on the cheapest airfare. Seriously, the most I knew about Sweden was that it gifted the world ABBA and IKEA. Looking back now, though, I’m so glad I went and didn’t cancel everything when I woke in that panicky haze. Edinburgh, Scotland now ranks in one of my top 10 favorite cities, and Stockholm and Copenhagen were two amazing gems that I look forward to exploring more in the future.
