The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot

There's a hot guy in Susannah Simon's bedroom. Too bad he's a ghost. 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.

What i thought: These books are a great series by Meg Cabot, and is one of my favorite series ever. The next five books are just as great as the first, Shadowland. This series combines mystery, suspense, humor, and romance, and definately will appeal to teens with various tastes in reading.

Suze was a funny, rebelious girl who always surprised me. She was often portrayed as a "hero" throughout these books, and, similar to Tally Younglblood from Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, Suze is not big on showing weaknesses, and is not afraid to take a punch. Jesse was an old fashioned ghost who tried to keep her out of trouble. It was a great story about a girl with an extraordinary talent. . . one that she simply sees as an unfair burden, one that she was cursed with since reaching the age of two.

Full of fun and whit, i would definately reccomend this book to teens who love reading any genre, as this one is a combination of everything. I highly recommend that all of Meg Cabot's fans give it a try - even though this series is very different than her other books, in my opinion, it's her best yet.

If you like these and are looking for more, i recommend you read the 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series, also by Meg Cabot, about a girl who gets struck by lightning and gets these odd powers--that help her find missing kids.

I've only read one Meg Cabot book. It was really good and funny. She's an entertaining author. I forgot what the book was called, but it was about this girl who saved the president and the presidents son had a crush on her and she was in love with her sister's boyfriend. Have you read it? Do you write your own stories/books?
