If you had a second chance at love, would you do it all over again?
Amy has enough to deal with for one lifetime.
A superstitious Chinese mother.
A best friend whose mood changes as dramatically as her hair colour.
A reputation for being strange.
The last thing she needs is to be haunted by someone only she can see.
Logan is a ghost from the Eighties. He could be dangerous. He’s certainly annoying.
He might also be Amy’s dream boy.
Preloved is Shirley Marr’s eclectically whimsical, long overdue, sophomore YA novel released April 2012 and one of Buzzfeed’s 2016 27 Books You’ll Want To Read By The Pool This Summer
Preloved is full of warmth, humour and retro supernatural. Will appeal to girls who love Twilight … and especially to those who don’t.”
The West Australian
I imagined it as an eighties teen rom-com the entire time in my head. Big-time Hollywood film producers, who I know are definitely for sure reading my blog, take note. I’m thinking about the casting at the moment.”
When it comes to smart, flawed, memorable characters and vivacious prose, Shirley Marr’s flux capacitor is totally functioning at full throttle –and I can’t wait to strap in for the next ride.”
The Midnight Garden
This book is full of humour, warmth and a genuine understanding of the difficulties faced in our modern, multicultural society. 4 out of 5 stars.”
