Kaylee Cooper seems to be a typical 1st grader with a crush on an older boy. She believes she can predict the future and she always follows up with, "Do you want to know how I know?", reminding me strongly of just about every 6 year old alive. Kaylee has an invisible friend named Amber and she just knows that the older boy she is infatuated with is going to make friends with a ghost soon. Could she be right? And if she is, how could Kaylee possibly know this?
"Remembering Kaylee Cooper" is endearing, funny, spooky, and sad, too. I found it to be a beautiful story and I want to read so much more from Christopher Francis!
