Goodreads Book Description:
If fourteen-year-old Kirra is having a mid-life crisis now, then it doesn't bode well for her life expectancy. Her so-called friends bully her, whatever semblance of a mother she had has been drowned at the bottom of a gin bottle ever since her dad left them for another woman, and now a teenage ghost is speaking to her through a broken phone booth. Kirra and the ghost make a pact. She'll prove who murdered him almost twenty years ago if he does three things for her. He makes her popular, he gets her parents back together, and he doesn't haunt her. Things aren't so simple however, and Kirra realises that people can be haunted in more ways than one.

My Review:
I was in Brisbane on holiday recently and this was one of my holiday reads as Yellow is released Feb 1st, therefore I wanted to read it and review it before it was released. I am so happy I made that decision!

Kirra’s story was one that I’ve never read anything like before, full of issues that many teenagers go through but are never revealed to those around them.

Megan Jacobson has written Yellow in a way to truly captures the reader and draws them in. “It’s like the space between the words in the kind of book that makes you stop and just rest the pages on your chest…” and that is quite literally what went down when reading Yellow.

A huge thank you to Penguin Teen Australia for giving me this at their event PTA Live and also to Megan Jacobson for writing such a unique and beautiful story, all the best with the release of Yellow!

Release Date: February 1st 2016
