This is also part of what I assume to be a newer series, this one called Suddenly Supernatural. My assumption is that the series will follow a 7th grader named Kat as she comes to realize she can see and talk to ghosts just like her mother. And her friend named Jac, who is a cellist, who doesn’t play anymore. In this book Kat has just started seeing ghosts, but doesn’t want to tell her mother because she’s not sure she wants this “gift”. She doesn’t have many friends, has only in the past year moved to this town. A new girl named Jac moves in, and she and Kat become friends. Jac doesn’t play the cello anymore because she froze up at a huge concert. Her mother moved her there because they have a teacher who is supposed to be good with helping kids in her situation.
I enjoy ghosts and the like, so maybe that’s part of what I enjoyed. And I like the show The Ghost Whisperer, where all ghosts aren’t bad. And this is kind of a kids’ version of that in a way. I think kids would like what Kat goes through with the popular crowd finding out about her gift as well as other issues like homework for a 7th grade girl.
Next book I’ll start tonight is Stolen Children by Peg Kehret.
