Dancing on the Edge by Han Nolan

Miracle's mother was hit crossing the street, and thus Miracle was born from a dead woman. She has been raised by her father, a distracted author, and her grandmother Gigi, a professional psychic. She has always believed what Gigi says is true, so when her father disappears and Gigi says he melted, she believes it. She also believes he's coming back, and will do anything necessary to help him do so.

I couldn't put this book down. The fast-moving plot and some interesting characters made it difficult to remove your eyes from the text. The writing is unobtrusive and smooth, making it easy to get lost in Miracle's confused world.

On the other hand, I didn't care for some of the characters, mostly Gigi, who I felt were stereotypical and dull. The ending also felt rushed and sloppy compared to a lot of the rest of the book.
