Shadowland is the first book in the thrilling, romantic Mediator series, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries, Meg Cabot.

Suze is a mediator--a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living.

But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations. But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy.

There's a ghost with revenge on her mind...and Suze happens to be in the way.

Don't miss the delightfully funny supernatural Mediator series, from New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot.

She sees dead people
Susannah is a mediator, a la Sixth Sense, helping ghosts resolve their earthly problems so they can depart. She lived a life of adventure and school problems in New York, hung out with her visiting dead father's ghost, and got in trouble with the law. Then Mom married a guy from California and they moved in with the new family -- new stepdad and three new stepbrothers. And her first day of school? She finds out that her school's principal, a priest, is also a mediator. She's not alone! Ever!
The introduction of a character who gets to physically interact with ghosts is great, and the introduction of Susannah to the ghost Jesse who has been haunting her new bedroom for the last 150 years is actually funny. There are lots of humourous bits as she moves into the new school, and meets the resident bully -- a rejected popular girl who committed suicide over a boy, and now wants to exact revenge on him.
Some of the clich├ęs used around the vengeful ghost are a bit much, and the constant injuries to various people while she skates uninjured is rather exaggerated.
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.
