Overview

Spirit-seeing Kat has pretty much overcome her fear of communicating with ghosts. But when she and her best friend, Jac, visit the Whispering Pines Mountain House and Kat is challenged to help a deceased medium make her way back into the light, things get a little darker.

From battling off deadly black clouds to fighting with her very own best friend, Kat's week-long stay at the haunted mountain house is anything but relaxing. The question is what will be scarier: facing off against a misguided spirit or her best friend?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cara Chancellor
After learning in School Spirit that she—like her mother—can communicate with spirits, then using her gift to send on a ghost in Scaredy Kat, seventh-grader Kat Roberts is ready for a vacation. This third book in the "Suddenly Supernatural" series begins when Kat joins her best friend Jac for a weeklong music symposium at the exclusive Whispering Pines Mountain House. Kat does not play an instrument herself, but Jac's pleas not to leave her alone with her super-strict mother are almost as persuasive as the thought of hiking mountain trails and exploring the resort's ancient labyrinth. Unfortunately for Kat, her longed-for relaxation just is not in the cards. Whispering Pine's celebrated history is also more than a little stained, most prominently with a gruesome murder that trapped an evil entity within its walls. In addition to facing the most dangerous spirit she has ever encountered, Kat must fend off the ghost of a medium who thinks she is dead and try to salvage her friendship with Jac when they tangle over—what else?—boys. Kimmel has captured in Kat the lovable imperfections and fighting spirit that have defined popular young adult heroines for generations. Undaunted by danger, she still trips over her feet before a cute boy… at least until he wrongs her best friend, in which case he will be getting an earful, "thankyouverymuch." Complex and witty—yet unabashedly determined to have good prevail, usually on the first try—Kimmel's easy-to-read story will be especially popular among ghost-hunters of all ages.

School Library Journal
Gr 6–9—In this addition to the series, Kat is attending a music conference at a posh mountain resort with her friend Jac. Kat, who has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts, is immediately confronted by an unhappy spirit who appears to have been a medium herself. While appreciative of Kat's abilities, Jac is distracted by her own ambivalence about taking up playing the cello again, and the attentions of a popular violinist. Conflicts abound, and Kat must help the medium cross over, and help Jac recognize that she needs to follow her own dreams and not those of her overbearing mother while still trying to enjoy her vacation. Kimmel includes some fascinating background information about the Spiritualist Movement. A satisfying and fun read with just enough of the supernatural thrown in to make it intriguing.—Kathy Kirchoefer, Prince Georges County Memorial Library System, New Carrollton, MD

I have read this book many times and I still enjoy it every time. I like how the author puts a touch of scaryness into her books and this series. I like how the girls who read this relate to Kat and Jac and how they act as girls
