This. Was. Awesome. I've been a fan of E.J.'s poetry for a while because she writes really cool stuff but she's got a knack for Young Adult books!
She Smells The Dead was new and different and certainly not a premise that I'm familiar with in the world of mediums. I thought it was unique!
I adored the main character Yuki, and her drive to be herself no matter what others thought. I also adored the other "main" character, Calvin. He was a dynamic character and what I would have wanted as a boyfriend at that age.
The story itself was fast paced and never boring. It's a great book in my opinion and I recommend that you check it out.
About The Book:
It's the beginning of senior year and Yuki's psychic awareness of ghostly spirits is threatening to ruin her life. Her ability to sense spirits of the dead isn't glamorous like the ghost hunting on television.
SHE SMELLS THE DEAD.
The smell impressions are becoming stronger. Yuki is being visited in her dreams, and she suspects that her friend Calvin is involved in something strange. To make matters worse her crush on Garrett is going unrequited, Yuki's friend Emma is on a rampage against bee oppression, and annoying Calvin Miller mysteriously disappears.
Will Yuki be able to focus her powers in time to save the lost soul who is haunting her? Meanwhile, who will save Yuki from following the spirits into the light?
