Publisher's Summary

The murder of Millroad Catholic Academy's resident genius Aaron Nguyen shuts down student life at the boarding school in rural North Carolina... for about a week. With the resilience of youth, the student body bounces back, and the memory of murder is nothing but a streamer of caution tape fluttering in the breeze. Unfortunately for them, Aaron's spirit has some resilience as well. The school priest's exorcism fails, and before long Aaron is breathing chills down the students' necks and hurling Bunsen burners at nuns.
Georgia Collins doesn't give a shit about ghosts. All she wants is a story to prove her underground school news blog is more than a gossip column, closure on her one-sided relationship with her best friend Hiroki, and a vanilla latte. She wasn't expecting Aaron Nguyen's death to be anything more than a cold spot in the science hall, but since Hiroki has the curse of Spectral Sight, he is the only person who can see and speak to Aaron.
As the ghost's demands for attention become increasingly violent, Hiroki wants Georgia to help him investigate the crime, claiming that Aaron isn't likely to budge until his killers are caught. Still hoping for spontaneous romantic combustion, she agrees to help bring Aaron's murderers to justice and set the vengeful spirit free... but it's not quite the close encounter she's hoping for.

Funny, Suspenseful and Supernatural, All in One

Would you listen to Exorcising Aaron Nguyen again? Why?

I loved this story. Georgia (the narrator) has a distinctive voice that sounds very realistic for a high school girl, and Hiroki, the clueless guy she's in love with, was all too real. It's also a combined mystery and supernatural story, both of which I love. On top of that, it's just plain funny! The author has a wicked sense of humor.

What did you like best about this story?

I think the Georgia's humor is the thing I like best about this book. There are dozens of funny lines. I would listen again just for those.

Which character – as performed by Lauren Harris – was your favorite?

It's a tie between Georgia and The Bishop. The performance of Georgia has the right balance of humor and teenage sensitivity. The Bishop, who the author performs with a deeper, flatter voice, starts off as a pompous teenage jerk but evolves into someone more complex.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The story's climax, where the conflict with Aaron Nguyen's ghost is resolved, was the most affecting. Georgia is not joking around here - she and Hiroki are trying to help a classmate in pain. The author knows when humor is called for and when it's not.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to the next installment in this series!

Great fun--can't wait for more

Where does Exorcising Aaron Nguyen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was definitely in the top third of the books I have listened to--and I have listened to a lot. It was a lot of fun, very engaging. I did not want to stop listening. I really hope there are more books in this series coming soon!

Have you listened to any of Lauren Harris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first original Lauren Harris piece I have listened to, though I have heard her voice before. This was well done, well produced, and very enjoyable. I think she did a very good job with the different voices for different characters, helping keep straight who was talking in the audio format. I also enjoyed hearing the North Carolina accent come out occasionally.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the book--Lauren Harris has a new fan.
