Friday Feature: Starr Gardinier and THE OTHER SIDE

Today I'm turning my blog over to Starr Smith to feature her latest release,  
THE OTHER SIDE: Melinda's Story.

I never post book trailers, but this is seriously the best one I've seen in a long, long time. Take a minute to check it out, and let me know what you think!

Meanwhile, my new book and I are over visiting Louise Lyndon's blog for her Friday Book Blitz. Come say hi if you've got half a minute!

About the Book:
Melinda's family is dead, killed for information that is hidden deep within her mind. Her father tries to warn her from the 'Other Side' that she is in danger from the killers who want what only she can give them. Committed to Skyview Haven, she must determine if the 'Other Side' truly exists or if it is a trick of her heart and mind. With time running out Melinda must determine who she can trust. Is it the ghosts of her family, a boy who may not be who he appears to be, or the doctor who is determined to cure her? Can she figure out the truth before it is too late?
And here's the awesome-ly cool book trailer! Trailers aren't really my thing, but Starr's trailer is so well done it needs to be featured! Let me know what you think!

Are you ready to purchase this book yet? A mysterious and creepy read for October!
