Bestselling author Meg Cabot (also known as Jenny Carroll) continues her Mediator series with this fifth compelling book -- a fabulous stand-alone novel, too -- about a girl who can speak to the dead.
Suze Simon is a popular high school girl with plenty of boy troubles. The thing is, Suze's beyond ordinary, and her boy troubles are supernaturally strange: The guy she likes happens to be dead, another boy at school has previously tried to kill her and himself, and she has a new homicidal spirit to contend with! Needless to say, Suze's life is confusing and chaotic, especially now, when the dangerous (and hot) Paul Slater is trying to convince her that her mediator's skills are greater than she knows. With the studly Jesse (a ghost) always there to keep her head on straight and her heart fluttering, Suze has no trouble steering clear of Paul, but when the heartthrob turns the charm up to romantic levels, she begins to wonder if he's really the monster she thought he was.
Blending otherworldly elements into a lively romance style all her own, Cabot serves up another Mediator entry that will leave fans swooning. The tension between Suze and Paul is thick enough to cut with a knife, while plenty of unexpected surprises will keep you glued to the page from one chapter to the next. The author has proven herself to be a master girl-meets-boy storyteller, and with Haunted keeping up the Mediator's dive into the other side, Cabot's popularity is sure to remain alive and kicking.
