Book Blogger Hop! Tres!

Book Blogger Hop Here I am again!  Unfortunately I already covered most of my news in my IMM!  So I figured now was a good time to join the other weekend blog meme I've seen around-- Parajunkee.com's Follow Friday.  So, hello everyone Hopping and Following!  Please poke around for a better idea of what I do.  Hopefully you'll see something you like!

Now, on to the Hop question:

TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING!

Well, if my widget's anything to go by, I have four books going right now (oy!).  But I'll just talk about the one I'm focusing on: Manifest by Artist Arthur (great name!!).  Basically, misfit girl sees a ghost who wants her to help him solve his murder.  But soon after she's contacted by the ghost, she's contacted by two much stranger beings: a popular girl and and a punk guy who seem strangely interested in--and knowledgeable about--her M-shaped birthmark.  I'm really enjoying it, even just five chapters in-- I can totally relate to Krystal's social plight, since I was very much an outcast in eighth grade.  It's also the first book I've read for this blog that had an American lead of color (Magic or Madness had the half-Aborigine Reason, but I'm an American and "get" more about the American racial landscape--at least as much as I can as an upper-middle class white girl).  Also, it's the first book for this blog by an author of color, which really makes me think...
