ABC: I can see dead people...


Okies...since u guys all do a lot of anime review, I'm gonna start a book club. I haven't thought of a name yet, so for now, I'm gonna name my book club simply as Audrey's Book Club.The first teen novel I've ever read is The Mediator by Meg Cabot, writing as Jenny Carroll. So, it's totally natural that the first book review I'm gonna do is bout this book.


Basically, this book is bout Susannah Simon who realized that she's a mediator(a person who sees dead people) when she was just two. Kinda like Cole Sear from The Sixth Sense played by Haley Joel Osment. Anyway, Suze is this tough girl who doesn't give a shit about the ghosts she sees. Oftenly, she ends up pounding them up because they constantly bother her bout things they wanna do before they move on to the next world. You might think that ghosts are invisible and you can't touch them, but in this story, the mediators can touch them and do whatever they like to them. Anyway, when she turned 16, she and her mom moved to California to live with her mom's new husband (oh, I forgot to mention that Suze's dad is dead and she still constantly contacts with him). When she arrived at her room, she was pretty disturbed to find a ghost sitting on her window seat. And to make matters worse, it's not just any ghost, it's a he, a very hot he. From that moment on, the book progresses to talk bout Suze's way of adjusting herself to the new environment (more ghosts) and her falling in love with Jesse (the hunky ghost).


Overall, I give a rating for this book a 7/10 because of the creative plot and also the comedy in the story. However, the story is just way to long (6 books!) and the last 2 books just sucks. Besides, Meg Cabot's way of writing is way too teen and boring...
