Dead is the new black by Marlene Perez

Daisy is the normal teen in a family of psychics, a slow bloomer in every sense of the word.  When her mother asks her oldest sister Rose to help with the mysterious death of a teenage girl, Daisy decides that she has had enough of sitting on the sidelines and decides to help out - along with the cute boy next door who seems forever out of her reach.  But Daisy has bitten off more than she can chew, and the town of Nightshade will never seem the same again - especially once Daisy manages to join the cheerleader squad AND get the boy next door to notice her as some more than a friend.

This was another one of those books that I almost put down after reading a few pages because it just seems to be a light fluffy book without an intense storyline to get into - and then I realised that that was exactly what I needed, something to cleanse the palate after all those intense supernatural thrillers.  Daisy and her world are bouncy, fun, and just the thing for a light read on a dark and stormy night.
