"Fast-paced and full of action, Crossed Out is a quick read that is full of colorful descriptive details." - Christine Marciniak, author of When Mike Kissed Emma

"Ms. Baccellia has done a wonderful job of making Stephanie jump off the pages...It had all the things I like: Boys, Mystery, Creepiness and Supernatural Ability!" - Reading, Writing and Waiting

"Crossed Out was a great read for fans of the supernatural, especially ghost stories; it's also a wonderful mystery that really makes you think about who you can really love and trust." - Reader Girls

"In Crossed Out, Kim Baccellia takes a few seemingly normal characters and puts them seamlessly into a paranormal life. At the end I was begging for more." - Mom's Not All

"The book reminded me of the Ghost Whisperer series where Melinda helps spirits crossover like Stephanie does. I really enjoyed the book and I cannot wait to read the sequel." - Books R Us

"Kim Baccellia weaves a tale of mystery and suspense guaranteed to keep the reader guessing. Every time I thought I'd figured out who everyone was and had separated the good guys from the bad guys, Ms. Baccellia threw in a surprise, a wonderfully delicious surprise, to send me down another path." - Beverly Stowe McClure, author of Just Breeze

"Crossed Out is a paranormal romance you can sink your teeth into, it's got a nicely flowing plot, with pretty likable characters. It's a compelling story, with a neat, dark and delicious twist on what you might be thinking." - Book Crazy

"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 4 out of 5 crosses." - LM Preston

"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." P.J. Hoover, YA author of Solstice
