Spirit Talker with Rebecca Laffar-Smith

Past Event

Join YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi author, Rebecca Laffar-Smith to discuss her newest novel Spirit Talker and youth mental health awareness.

Is goodbye ever truly the end?

Since the death of her mother, Sara Brooks has seen things. Things that aren’t really there. Or so she’s been told…Desperate for a fresh start, Sara’s dad moves her across the country where a new life awaits. Between a new therapist, a new school, new friends and the handsome boy next door, Sara tries to get back to ‘normal’.

But what is ‘normal’ when you’re followed by ghosts?

Nightly visits from a 17th-century poet and the haunting melodies of a child guitarist make living an ordinary life complicated.

After Sara’s secret is discovered at a sleepover, she watches in horror as the fragile friendships she’s built fall apart. More isolated than ever before, she starts to wonder if perhaps she’s as crazy as everyone says.

But when the boy she’s falling for is losing the battle against his own inner darkness, Sara can’t sit idly by.

Will she learn to trust herself in time?
