Maeve Merritt chafes at the rigid rules at her London boarding school for “Upright Young Ladies.” When punishment forces her to sort through the trash, she finds a sardine tin that houses a foul-tempered djinni with no intention of submitting to a schoolgirl as his master. Soon an orphan boy from the charitable home next door, a mysterious tall man in ginger whiskers, a disgruntled school worker, and a take-no-prisoners business tycoon are in hot pursuit of Maeve and her magical discovery.

Being broke, unemployed, and stranded back in the tiny town of Pick, Texas, was not part of Jancy Wilson's plan. Yet here she is, watching her car literally go up in smoke - along with her last-ditch hope of staying with her cousin in Louisiana. When Jancy spies a Help Wanted sign hanging in the window of the quaint Strawberry Hearts Diner, the memories of the two years she spent there as a teenager - and the lure of the diner's beloved strawberry tarts - are enough to draw her in and plant her feet...but only temporarily.

When she was nine years old, Kim Russo discovered she had an amazing gift - she could communicate with the dead. Deeply skeptical, she denied her talent for years. But as she gradually reconciled her ability with her religious beliefs, Kim embraced who she is - and ultimately accepted her soul's mission as a voice for the spirit world. Known as the Happy Medium for her authenticity, her warmth, and her honest, positive readings, Kim has helped people from all walks of life to connect with those who have passed on.

I really enjoyed this book. Kim Russo didn't just tell her story, she shared her struggles and then gave us exercises to teach us how to grow in our own abilities to get past some of the struggles. I really appreciated that it wasn't just a book about her - it was sharing of knowledge based on experience. There are parts that I will revisit.

People often say, "I feel like I've been run over by a truck." Katie actually was. On a sunny morning bike ride in Brooklyn, 24-year-old Katie McKenna was forever changed when she was run over by an 18-wheeler. Being crushed under a massive semi wasn't something Katie should have survived. After 10 hours of emergency surgery, she woke to find herself in a body and a life that would never be the same.

This is one of those books that resonates with the heart, reminding one that every breath is a gift that could be the last - and so to appreciate each one and all of the people breathing with us in our life. It is well written and honest. I think anyone learning her story should be forever changed and experience the world differently.
