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 (like that kid in that movie). And they won't leave her alone (papa-papa-paparazzi) until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost (but ghosts don't have heat!) 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.
Meg Cabot will not disappoint! I stumbled upon this book after I read Alyson Noel's Shadowland. I loved Meg Cabot's pacing of this novel, writing style and the realistic teen point of view this novel portrayed. Suze Simon was one of the most memorable characters I've ever come across. Her Beatles reference at the end was a nice touch. There was absolutely nothing I disliked about this book. It was worth every cent I paid for.
