There’s a hot guy in Susannah Simon’s bedroom. Too bad he’s a ghost.
Suze is a mediator – a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won’t leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn’t seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.
But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it’s not that easy. There’s a ghost with revenge on her mind… and Suze happens to be in the way.
Yes, this book has many of the YA genre tropes within its pages, but I don’t care. I like it anyway. This is a re-read of a series from when I was a teenager and it felt like coming home. Reading about Suze and her exploits being a teenage ghost whisperer (Mediator).
Suze is a Mediator when the book begins and the reader just jumps straight into her world as she moves to California. The cute elements of a ghost in Suze’s bedroom with some hilarious scenes are contrasted with a vindictive ghost in the high school.
I loved the nostalgia I felt from reading this book and am definitely planning on continuing this series. The YA version of “The Ghost Whisperer”.
Keep Calm and Read On,
