I really liked this book, since I can somewhat relate to Lilah (but not the ghost part, don't worry). It came about 3 months ago, and I already read it about 5 times!

I think this book was awesome because, Lilah can hear ghosts, and the ghosts sometimes help her, but they also cause trouble too. I think that you will love this book.

Submitted 4/6/2019 by horseanddoglover

This book made me think about how important it is to be nice to everybody. Although it was pretty good it didn't fully meet my expectations mostly because I didn't find the character very relatable and it didn't make me think deeper. If you like a book that you don't have to think to much about than I would most definitely recommend this

Great book!

I loved this book! I used it for a book report and it was a perfect choice! This book was full of humor and it had an interesting plot and characters. I hate scary movies, ghosts, and mostly anything scary. But in this book, the ghosts were be so funny and helpful! The friendly ghosts were able to help the main character Lilah solve her problems! If you ask me, Casper the Friendly Ghost belongs in this book! The Jewish content in this book is hinted throughout this book, not directly stated.

This book is a good thing to read when you’re bored. Still, it’s not that good. Kinda boring. If you hate love stories ( that sums up me) DO NOT READ THIS!
Actually that applies to everyone.
I just didn’t want to give it a bad review so I gave it 3/5 stars. (Sorry, I’m a math nerd.)
One of the worst books I’ve ever read.
The only good part is that she can talk to ghosts. SO. UNBELIEVABLY. COOL!!!!!!
Anyway, please don’t read this unless you like emotional stories.
Actually don’t read it no matter what.
BAD BOOK!!!!!!!
Thank you. (takes bow)

The best thing about a good book is that you can read it over and over and still be excited about what is going to happen next. This is definitely one of them. I don’t want to give much away, but overall this book is about a girl who gets struck by lightning and is suddenly able to hear ghosts. She cannot see them, so she is doubtful at first. Hearing ghosts leads to a lot of things. Read this book and find out!

I read it TWO times!!

This deep and wonderful novel really touched my heart. While Lilah goes through all the normal middle school worries and excitements, she is also given this very special power to talk to dead loved ones and friends. Lilah has to deal with her mom remarrying, her dad doing nothing, and a really cute boy to impress, she learns hard lessons in ways you would never expect. I really recommend this book to everyone and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I really liked this book! I think it was really cool. Talking to ghosts and being able to communicate with dead family members is mindblowing. When I picked it out I have to admit, it sounded like a normal book that I would like but would not want to read every moment of the day, but once I started reading it I could not put it down. I read it in 2 days, even though I was at sleepaway camp. I can not wait to read more by Joanne Levy. Thank you PJ Ourway for letting me read this book!

This book may sound a little young, or boring. You are very wrong! This book is very interesting, very fun, and I couldn't put it down! It is about a teenager named Lila who has powers to hear ghosts. The author actually makes that sound realistic. She got struck by lightning and can hear people like her music teacher's dead girlfriend and a famous fashion designer. She even hears her crush's father. Along with her best friend Alex, Lila goes on an amazing journey.

This book made me think more about friendship.

Lilah is struck by lightning at her mom's wedding. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing... it means she can talk to ghosts, including her Bubbe who just wants her single dad to be happy. Along with grandma, Lilah talks to an old friend of her music teacher's and a fashion designer as well as her crush's dad.

Talking to the beyond is beneficial... It helped Lilah's music teacher have the courage to pursue his music career. It helped her come to the rescue at the school's fashion show. And it helped her dad find someone he'd actually have a future with.

The author made the characters come to life... even the ones who weren't exactly living. Bubbe had a big personality and was hysterical as an interfering grandma from the other side.

Along the way, Lilah learned alot about herself. And she was able to turn her relationship with the school bully around. Lilah decided to help instead of hurt which just proved she was the bigger person.

Definitely made me LOL.. Loved it!!

Submitted 2/1/2015 by Design Team

From Bougie, age 11, Washington, D.C.
“Small Medium at Large” is a fun read. It’s about a girl named Lilah who is a regular kid until she gets struck by lightning. Then she is able to talk to ghosts, but there is one in particular who talks the most: her “Bubby” Dora. To Lilah, it’s not scary, just a bit annoying. She’d rather have her life go back to normal. But there’s no chance of that with Bubby Dora talking in her ear, giving her advice about her dad’s dating, her crush, Andrew Finkel, and, well, everything! To find out what happens to Lilah, read the book.
