9780064472784: Haunted: A Tale of the Mediator

My name is Susannah Simon, and I am a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. Yes, this does get in the way of my attempt at a normal sixteen-year-old life. At least I have Jesse, the ghost of a nineteenth-century hottie, haunting my bedroom.

But there's also this other guy. A live one, who has the same gift of gab with the undead I have. In the same way I'm after Jesse, this guy is after me. And he knows how to send Jesse to the Great Beyond. For good.

So I guess you could say I'm haunted. I just never thought it would be by someone who isn't dead.

About the Author:

Meg Cabot is the author of the best-selling, critically acclaimed, immensely popular Princess Diaries novels, as well as All-American Girl, Haunted, and two Regency novels, Nicola and the Viscount and Victoria and the Rogue. Meg was born in Bloomington, Indiana, and her childhood was spent in pursuit of air conditioning, of which there was little at the time in southern Indiana. A primary source proved to be the Monroe County Public Library, where Meg whiled away many hours, reading the complete works of Jane Austen, Judy Blume, and Barbara Cartland.

Armed with a fine arts degree from Indiana University, Meg moved to New York City, intent upon pursuing a career in freelance illustration. Illustrating, however, soon got in the way of Meg's true love, writing, and so she abandoned it and got a job as the assistant manager of an undergraduate dormitory at New York University, writing on the weekends, and whenever her boss wasn't looking.

Meg lives in New York City with her husband, Benjamin, a poet, financial market writer and fellow Hoosier, and their one-eyed cat, Henrietta.

From AudioFile:

Susannah Simon is not a normal 16-year-old. As a mediator, she can talk to, touch, and even have a crush on ghosts . . . a certain nineteenth-century ghost in particular. Classmate Paul Slater, who shares her talent but is of dubious moral character, insists that Susannah hang her heart on the living, specifically him. This harsh abridgment leaves too many background and plot holes to keep listeners satisfied. Alanna Ubach bears this burden well and delivers a great teen protagonist. While she depicts promising character variations, she needs to work on pacing. The ability to sound like a teenager without compromising narration is a true narrator's challenge.
