Publisher's Summary

Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice - until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.
That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable.
Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
From New York Times best-selling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.

Leisl and Po is the story of an unlikely friendship between a forgotten little girl and a ghost. It takes place in a world where magic can happen. Although the intended audience for the book is younger than Lauren Oliver's typical audience, she delivers her characteristic strong and complex plot - trusting her readers to have the imagination to follow along. Jim Dale's reading of the book is breathtaking. He brings each character to life in a unique and delightful way. I would recommend this book not just for young adults, but for all readers. It will remind you of how magical an experience a good book can be.

Great story made better by a great narrator

Simply said, I loved everything about this book. I must be young at heart since is a YA book. The characters are wonderful, even the bad ones are fun. And the twists and turns take the reader/listener on a frenzied and fascinating journey. I was sorry when the story ended, even though it ended exactly as it should. Jim Dale was superb. He brought each character to life in a way few narrators can.
