Sheets – The Lion Forge LLC
Marjorie Glatt feels like a ghost. A practical thirteen-year-old in charge of the family laundry business, her daily routine features unforgiving customers, unbearable P.E. classes, and the fastidious Mr Saubertuck who is committed to destroying everything she’s worked for.

Wendell is a ghost. A boy who lost his life much too young, his daily routine features ineffective death therapy, a sheet-dependent identity, and a dangerous need to seek purpose in the forbidden human world.

When their worlds collide, Marjorie is confronted by unexplainable disasters as Wendell transforms Glatt’s Laundry into his midnight playground, appearing as a mere sheet during the day. While Wendell attempts to create a new afterlife for himself, he unknowingly sabotages the life that Marjorie is struggling to maintain.

Sheets is a warm, cute story of a ghost called Wendell and teenager Marjorie Glatt. Events in the first book can be a little unclear but things speed up and make more sense at the end of the book. The storyline is very creative and out of the box. The story is nothing like any story I heard involving ghosts. It is this delightful mixture of hope and sadness. The ghost Wendell is such a sweet, innocent soul (pun intended).
The eye-catching artwork with the pinks and blues don't exactly vibe "ghost story" but was perfect for Sheets. The details of the town(where Marjorie lived) were beautiful- the myriad of eateries, stores and other places. The town was one of my favorite things about Sheets. The whole town was so charming that I wish I lived there. I wished there was a picture book just for the town. Then I would giddily go through it wishing I was there, even though I'm eighteen years old. 
Reading Sheets takes no time, I believe whatever time you give to read is worth it. The unique story and gorgeous artwork made the book something like a colourful cupcake treat. I want to read the sequel Delicates as well because more Sheets for me!
I recommend Sheets for a short yet captivating read, to relax with a coffee, cute and light-hearted but a satisfying read. Your eyes will be mesmerized.
