Overview

SHE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT SHE WAS DEAD.

When Shari Cooper awoke at home after being at her girlfriend's birthday party, her family acted like she wasn't there. They didn't hear a thing she said. They wouldn't even look at her. Then the call came from the hospital. Her father and brother paled. Her mother started to cry. Shari didn't know what was wrong. Not until she followed them to the hospital. There she found herself lying on a cold slab in the morgue. The police said that it was suicide.

Shari knew she had been murdered. Making a vow to herself to find her killer, Shari embarks on the strangest of all criminal investigations: one in which she spies on her friends, and even enters their dreams — where she comes face-to-face with a nightmare from beyond the grave. The Shadow — a thing more horrible than death itself — is the key to Shari's death, and the only thing that can stop her murderer from murdering again.

After her untimely death, eighteen-year-old Shari tries to prove that she did not commit suicide and to keep the person responsible from killing again.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Shari is dead, and she knows that she didn't kill herself. So rather than merging with the cosmos as other spirits do, she lingers near the world of the living, determined to find her murderer. Fortunately for Shari, she is not alone in the hereafter. She finds a kindred spirit in Peter, the ghost of a boy she went to high school with. The ethereal duo discover Shari's killer in time to prevent another murder. But their techniques are not typical: rather, they solve the mystery by spying on old friends, attempting to communicate through a Ouija board, entering people's dreams and confronting the darker aspects of their own souls. The novel's central mystery, though somewhat contrived, moves along briskly. Plenty of action combined with several creepy seance scenes keep the pages turning. However, although the novel makes it clear that both Peter and Shari would rather be alive, some may question the prudence of presenting young readers with such a seductive vision of life after death. Ages 12-up. (Apr.)
Children's Literature
Imagine what it would be like to have to solve your own murder. That is exactly what Shari Cooper has to do in the first book in the "Remember Me" trilogy. Shari Cooper is a typical high school student. She is concerned about grades, friends, her boyfriend, and, most of all, looking good. After a party one night she wakes up to find herself dead, a victim of a fall off a balcony. Worse, everyone believes that she jumped! Now she exists in a shadowy half-world where she can only watch what happens around her but can't influence it. She is not alone, however. Peter, her old lab partner (and crush) who died the year before, finds her and tries to help her adjust to her new state. Together the two of them try to solve the mystery and find a way to escape The Shadow, the embodiment of fear that stalks them. As a mystery, this is a gripping book. It has enough twists and turns to keep the story interesting. The reader tries to keep track of the clues as eagerly as the main characters. The characters in the story are believable and interesting and readers are satisfied at the end. Be warned, though, that there is an element of the occult and anyone who finds that offensive should steer clear. 2002 (orig. 1989), Simon Pulse/Simon and Schuster,

    This book changed me!

    On day in B&N I happended to stumbled across this book. One this particular day I was splurging on my self because I wasn't too happy. Once I got around to reading this book I was in awe. This book is captivating. I loved it. Not only was this book well written but I stayed with it, I didn't get bored. When you read this which you will because it's worth the time and money you will love it. You will fall in love with Shari Copper not in a romantic way but in a sisterdly, friendly way. While reading this you will reliese so many things. It changed me because my past haunted me during this time and when you read it they talk about the past and how you can't it and it's gone, over, finished. So why waste so much over your life, living in the past?Christoper Pike did a great job with this I hung on the every word. If you are comtomplating whether or whether not to buy this, read the first chapter or not even that the first paragraph and you will be hooked granted!

    LOVED IT

    I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK.. I FEEL LIKE I COULD ACTUALLY RELATE TO THE CHARACTERS.. THE ONLY THING I DIDNT LIKE IS THE ENDING.. I MEAN.. BECOMING THE AUTHOR WAS OKAY BUT THE PART WHERE SHE DECIDES TO FADE AWAY FROM HER LOVE AND GO CLOSER TO HER CRUSH REALLY PISSED ME OFF.. CHRISTOPHER PIKE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS AND I WAS DISAPPOINTED AT THAT ENDING.. I KNOW HE COULD HAVE DONE BETTER.. =[

    Now One of My Top Most Favorite Books of All Times (First Book Review)

    (The first book "Remember me" review, The book is into books in the trilogy)
    This summer I wanted something to read. I read all the books on my book self at home so I decided to try to get a new book.
    I'm really into books that had anything that was supernatural. If it didn't I would not read it.
    So I was looking around when I saw this thick book called "Remember Me" on the shelf. It was only 8 bucks and I thought what a good deal for a book that thick. I look at the back to read what it was about. It was right in my alley of what I liked to read.
    So I set it back on the shelf and looked at some more. After reading 6 backs of books I decided that nothing compared to "Remember Me". So I decided to buy it.
    After I got home I started to read it. I remember the first night I read it I started at 9 at night and read to 2 in the morning! I never thought it would be such a page turner!
    I thought that Christopher writing in the first view of a GIRL was amazing. He seemed to get what girls do and what they want and so on.
    But some of the action was kind of roughly written. Sometimes I really did not know what going on until after she talks about it.
    I loved how you can not tell that this book was written almost 21 years ago. In the book he does not explain what "Kind" of clothes they are wearing like for example "I wanted to wear faded blue jeans with my yellow button up top" instead he puts "I decided to wear my yellow top with some blue jeans to the party." that made it feel like it wasn't written in the last 1980s like I was reading it about the present day.
    In the book, Sometimes I thought that it went kind of off topic of what the story was about. This girl wanted to find her killer and that what the book promised. Sometimes she would try to find something else then come back to trying to find her killer.
    I also like that it was not one of those "goody, goody" books. That it had mild swearing and it talk about sex and problems that teens face today.
    Over all I think the book had a great message in it. And a huge page turner twist to it.
    It's a really great book and now it is one of my favorite books of all times.

    THE BEST!!!!

    Hi, I'm a 14 year old that loves mystery and horror books, this one is one of my favorites mystery books that I've read, for now becasue I can't wait to read the second and third one. Well actually I haven't finished the first one yet but I really lkke it a lot, I can't stop reading, I have to stop to leave some pages to read at school during reading time, but I just can't! I really can't wait to know who did it. The thing I like about this book, is that is a mystery but also has to do with ghosts and how there is life after death, and there is also some funny parts. This is a book that everyone that likes mysteries and ghosts, but not that kind of ghosts that scare people and stuff, is a teenager ghost that was a normal teenager but got murderer, and by whom is what she is trying to find out, well I hope this review helped you in choosing this book!

    Exciting and thrilling

    I absolutely loved the book. i remember the first time even decided to read the book; my cousin told me to read the book because she has just finished it and plus i needed a book to read for school. now a year and a half later every time i think about the book, i remeber the main character's name-Shari Cooper-and i would think to myself i would never read a book like this. then i read remember me part2 i think it was good but the first one will always be the best for me. that's why i give it ***** stars.

    GREAT!

    i think 'remember me' was a good book because it really changes your view on how death is or will be.it talks about pressure and i think this book is great for 6th graders and up.

    Something Amazing...

    I first read this book, probably when I was 12 years old, now I'm 18 and I just re-read it because it amazed me so much the 1st time. I have always been impressed with Christoper Pike's talent to write an amazing story, one that as you are reading it along in your head, you are seeing everything take place, and that is what makes a book magical, to be able to visulize it and to be able to remember it for years to come. I give my props to the man, and I hope every one else does too.

    l*l*l A deep thinking bookl*l*l

    Remember Me was a wonderful book,it was the first Christopher Pike book that I have ever read. I thought it was amazing just because of it's plot. To be able to go back into heaven and space and talk to the Rishi was awe inspiring because of how clear it was. The way she came back to earth and settled her problems was wonderful, and the truth she finds out about herself is a bit disturbing....

    My favorite Christopher Pike book!

    I started reading Christopher Pike books back in the 5th or 6th grade (back when only a few of his books were published and I would rush to the bookstore whenever a new one came out!), and I've always been a big fan of all of his books. But 'Remember Me' has always been my all-time favorite. I've read it several times, and even now that I'm in my twenties, I still have it on my bookshelf. The story is involving and unusual, with a very interesting twist on the usual whodunit. The major characters are also great and you really come to care about them. I remember this book very fondly from my childhood, and I highly recommend it to all!

    Great

    This book is very interesting in many ways. For one thing, it talks about life after death which is something no one knows for sure about. Plus, I liked it how Shari and Peter pair up. It was also cool because Shari gets to spy on all her friends and see how they really were. And while you think Shari's worst enemy is The Shadow, it turns out to be the dark side of herself.
