Publisher's Summary

"Let me set the record straight. My name is Charlotte Silver and I'm not one of those paranormal-obsessed freaks you see on TV... no, those would be my parents, who have their own ghost-hunting reality show. And while I'm usually roped into the behind-the-scenes work, it turns out that I haven't gone unnoticed. Something happened on my parents' research trip in Charleston - and now I'm being stalked by some truly frightening other beings. Trying to fit into a new school and keeping my parents' creepy occupation a secret from my friends -and potential boyfriends - is hard enough without having angry spirits whispering in my ear. All I ever wanted was to be normal, but with ghosts of my past and present colliding, now I just want to make it out of high school alive?"

fun with twinge of spooky

Where does Past Midnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

in the upper half. really enjoyed the story and characters, looked forward to getting in the car and turning it back on. probably meant to be a book for teens because of the ages of the main characters but type of story line I enjoy. the reader was very expressive with her different characters, kept it light.

What other book might you compare Past Midnight to and why?

I cant think of any particular titles since my book habits are all over the place!

Which scene was your favorite?

in the restaurant near the end when the two teens are reconnecting finally over Adam's death, with the nuances of their emotions reflected on the 'ghost meters'. touching scene

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

that's very difficult to do, and I listen to my books on my hour drive to or from work. but looked forward to the next time that I had to start it back up! I could see a sequel to it as she moves on to the next stage of her life.

Any additional comments?

Paranormal for Young Adults and the Young at Heart

If you could sum up Past Midnight in three words, what would they be?

Lovely guilty pleasure

Who was your favorite character and why?

Charlotte Silver was the voice of the story and certainly the narrator of the tale. She was a sympathetic character and very much a young girl's voice. It was her story.

What does Tara Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tara's actual voice fits the character of Charlotte. She makes it believable - at least inasmuch as Charlotte is telling her tale.

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

No, but the story kept me listening. Overall, it is a very nice little story - a guilty pleasure.
