This is one awesome book! It's about a very modern girl Suze (teenager) who can see ghosts and is resposible for helping them get to the afterworld. Well, everything was normal(as far as normal can go here) until her mother remarries into a family in california and has now, three brother - dopey, doc and sleepy (as she calls them). Futher, there is this really handsome ghost -Jesse- from the early eighties in her new bedroom! And to complicate things more, she just happens to fall in love with the ghost she was supposed to send to the afterlife. The first book, in my opinion, is hastly written and crammed eith information...but it somehow gives the readers an idea of a down-to-earth, stubborn girl who has already experienced too much of life (or death for that matter). Thigs take a wild turn as more and more ghosts turn up with the idea of taking revenge. Can Jesse and Suze stick together till the end? Here and there, sometimes i feel that the author intends to return Jesse to life. But the again, as long as Jesse's a ghost, the story has an intresting twist in every chapter. So, how does Meg Cabot intend to return Jesse to life? Does anyone have an idea? You can exocise a ghost but can you bring him back to life?

My sister reads this book. But i think that even the first book was find of cramped. I didn't have the heart to go on. But about the ghost part - let Ms./Mrs. Cabot think up some way to bring the ghost back to life. I personally can't imagine that happening unless something even more supernatural is involved.
