This gripping memoir chronicles the hair-raising and hilarious moments in Michael Bodine’s haunted life. It includes amazing true stories—a dangerous ghost friend with a hidden agenda, the hodgepodge of psychics who gathered in his mother’s kitchen, ghost hunting misadventures, spirit messages, possession—along with an inspiring account of his successful battle against chemical dependency as he learned to accept his unusual gift. 

Praise:
“Fans of based-in-reality psychic family TV drama Medium, or anyone who wished Running With Scissors had more ghosts, will be gratified with this memoir from professional psychic Bodine.”PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Growing Up Psychic is not a how-to book about developing psychic ability, but it does show that the ability, once recognized and accepted as natural, can be a part of everyday life and become a valuable service that can aid others.”NEW AGE RETAILER

About the Author:

Michael Bodine (Minnesota/Los Angeles) is a professional psychic whose clients include many celebrities.

From Publishers Weekly:

Fans of based-in-reality psychic family TV drama Medium, or anyone who wished Running With Scissors had more ghosts, will be gratified with this memoir from professional psychic Bodine, who grew up with a psychic mom and sister in a house full of spirits. Happily, the paranormal isn't Bodine's primary focus; among relatively few instances of psychic phenomenon, Bodine's account is an absorbing family drama featuring a mother suddenly enraptured with the beyond; a wealthy father who leaves his wife and four children; Bodine's own pre-teen descent into drugs and alcohol; and, ultimately, personal redemption and fulfillment. Most striking is Bodine's sense of loneliness and abandonment; he makes it seem almost natural when he embraces a friendship with Jerry, a dead boy who chooses to be Bodine's spirit guide, but who reads like an increasingly malevolent imaginary friend. Still, Bodine's narrative can meander, and occasionally skips over important-seeming events without explanation ("My therapist tried to have sex with me which completely freaked me out so I stopped seeing him"). Though it won't turn any skeptics into believers, Bodine's tale should capture the imagination of the open-minded. END
