About the Author

Kim Baccellia has always been a sucker for the paranormal. She blames it on her families' love for such things such as having picnics at cemeteries, visiting psychics, and reading her mother's copies of the daily horoscope. She even had her own horoscope column in middle school, which was a big hit! Kim's other works include the poem, "My Father", which appears in the anthology Mind Mutations, published by The Sun Rising Press. Her essay about the adoption of her son, Finally, Our Turn, appeared in Adoptive Families magazine. Her YA multicultural fantasy, Earrings of Ixtumea, is published by Virtual Tales and available now at Amazon. A member of SCBWI, Kim is currently writing the sequel to CROSSED OUT. She's also putting the finishing touches on an upper MG fantasy No Goddesses Allowed. She lives in Southern California with her husband and son.

I recommend this book for readers who enjoy mysteries and ghost stories (like me).
Beverly Stowe McClure
By the end of the book I felt like there was several points that needed to be addressed and wrapped up, but were left hanging and confusing.
Angela
This book is really the total package...great voice and humor, yet there is depth to Stephanie's feelings for her discarnate 'clients'.

Stephanie is a character I'd like for a friend. She is sassy, a little pessimistic and determined to do what she thinks is right - most of the time. I have always wondered about the people who made the crosses on the sides of the road. Now after reading this book I do think of them and look at them a whole lot differently then before. Of the male characters I can't really say I liked one more than the other. I pretty much connected with Stephanie the most. The air of tension and mystery had me turning the pages and I finished this book feeling satisfied. I give it a 4 out of 5 crosses.

Having been ridiculed in the past for admitting she sees dead people, it's no wonder Stephanie keeps her ability a secret from her family and friends. She helps spirits crossover into heaven, but she does it alone and very late at night. Her mom doesn't like her odd behavior, making crosses and running out of slumber parties, and makes Stephanie visit a new counselor, who surprises Stephanie by admitting he knows what she does and offers her help. Then she learns her best friend, Dylan can see auras and the hot guy she's crushing on is a rescuer like her. After years of helping spirits cross on her own, the sudden crowd she finds herself in is disturbing and she doesn't know who to trust.

Crossed Out is a fast paced story with well developed characters. I really enjoyed the unique approach to a crossing over story.

By Joyce Sweeney on October 5, 2012
Format: Paperback
Stephanie Stewart is your typical teen: she fights with her mother, wonders if she should go with the 'reliable' boy or the 'seductive boy' and generally acts before she thinks. That would all be okay if she didn't have a gift for helping uneasy souls cross over and if some of those souls didn't start messing in her business! This book is really the total package...great voice and humor, yet there is depth to Stephanie's feelings for her discarnate 'clients'. She has to dodge mental health counselors, well meaning mothers and her own overly active hormones to sort out who's who in a cast of very tricky people and spirits. The author totally knows what girls like and knows how to write a book that feels like a movie, with cinematic scenes, special effects and those great romantic close-ups.

Highly recommended for 7th grade and up readers, CROSSED OUT takes the best of humor, mystery, and paranormal and blends them all together into a book that is sure to delight readers! The main character, Stephanie, is full of attitude, which makes for humor and fun throughout as she is cast into the world of guiding the dead. Add in a hot guy, and CROSSED OUT has it all!

By Christine on October 2, 2012
Format: Paperback
Ms. Baccellia has written a fast-paced paranormal mystery novel full of exciting moments.

Seeing dead people does not generally help get you into the in crowd in school, but Stephanie Stewart has more to worry about than what her friends thinks. Dead people seek her out for help crossing over to the other side. The help she gives them involves decorating a cross and placing it near the location the person died, as is often seen by roadside shrines where someone died in a car accident.

But there's even more at work in this supernatural thriller, because if Stephanie is not careful she could be the next one crossed out.

And of course, there is a romance, but even that is fraught with peril, because not everyone is as they seem.

An enjoyable book, especially for someone who loves ghost stories.
