Dying To Tell Me

Dying to Tell MeDying to Tell Me by Sherryl Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This crossover YR/ YA novel is a well-written mystery. Moving to a new (country) town after their mother leaves the family, Sasha, her dad and brother become embroiled in a local mystery involving art, dope and deadbeats.
There are some cliches in this story, but there is a lot to like too. Sasha is a ‘troubled teen’ trying to find her way after going off the rails after her mum leaves. Dad is trying to do his best, while holding down a job as a policeman. And brother, Nicky, is just trying to get along with his grumpy sister and floundering father. There are elements of magical realism, some hair-raising moments and a realistic teen voice.
Recommended for lower secondary readers.
