A very good book. A nice little ghost story with an understanding of high school hierarchy. And all the "mean girls" who inhabit that world. Definitely NOT recommended for anyone under the age of twelve though. It is a little frightening in some parts. Cute characters who were very well-thought out. Be careful though. There is another book with a very similar title, so be sure to order this one by author.
