Static  by Eric Laster

As a fan of this author, I was really looking forward to this book. As soon as it came, it was at the top of my to-read pile. When I started it, it was not what I expected (it didn’t help that I did not even read the back cover before delving in), it is a paranormal mystery which has a really original take on help from beyond the grave. Curtis is trying to figure out why his brother died and he does so with a little help from him. He also has many coming of age moments, some which make this appropriate for high school age and up. Although it mostly seems about solving a mystery, there are also a lot of deep messages and questions throughout that really add to the depth of this book and make the reader think. Even though I am not a hug fan of mystery novels, I still found it enjoyable and unpredictable. I would recommend this as a coming of age, mystery.
