KIRKUS REVIEW

Kat is used to her mom’s being a medium, but when Kat herself begins seeing the dead, it’s the last thing she wants. It’s bad enough being unpopular, living in a spooky house and having a mother who wears harem pants: All Kat wants is to fit in, to be normal. Now, just as she has finally made a friend—Jac, a frustrated cellist—ghosts start appearing, ghosts who need her help. When Jac proves to be an unexpected ally, Kat is initially relieved. But then it appears that Jac has a connection to the ghost Kat sees. Can Kat lend a hand? Is she up to the dual task of supporting her friend and helping the dead rest in peace? This is light fare, but Kimmel provides lively, believable characters, some real-life problems and just the right amount of suspense. A satisfying start to a new series, this will especially appeal to tweens who like their paranormal with a touch of humor and some daily life. (Fantasy. 9-12)
