Publisher's Summary

My name is Susannah Simon, and I am a mediator, a liason between the living and the dead. If you think this gets in the way of my attempt at a normal 16-year-old life, you'd be right. You try going to the mall while constantly being accosted by the undead. Not that this is a bad thing all the time. Like, for example, when I discovered my bedroom is haunted by Jesse, the ghost of a 19th-century hottie. While I haven't made much progress with him (only one kiss so far), I remain optimistic. Jesse's inexplicable resistance to my charms is not my only obstacle, though: there's this other guy. A live one, who has the same gift of gab with the undead I have. In the same way I'm after Jesse, this guy is after me. And he knows how to send Jesse to the Great Beyond. For good.
So I guess you could say I'm haunted. I just never thought it would be by someone who isn't dead.

Love the Book, But Not the Narrator...

I really love the series! I also enjoyed the nararrator for the first 4 books, but I'm having a hard time with the new one... I just think her voice is all wrong for the series! She makes Paul sound like an old man, Jessie sould like a smooth talking guy with devious intent, and Suze sound like Ceecee would! Hopefully they will have someone else be narrator for the next book, or better yet, the old (and I think best) one.

Love the books-- TERRIBLE NARRATOR

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The other books are presented wonderfully. This narrator makes the characters seem whiny and silly... what a bummer for such an important book in the series.
