A tween girl becomes a reluctant medium in this start to a hilariously haunting series. Kendall Williams sees dead people. Not only can she see them, she can speak to them...and they can speak to her. It's that last little detail that really causes all kinds of problems. The dead don't have much in the way of boundaries, and they tend to pop up whenever--and wherever--they please. They want Kendall to help them move on by resolving any remaining issues from when they were alive. Unfortunately, they're not too great at explaining what those issues might be, so Kendall has to become a sort of psychic sleuth and figure it out for them. This time around, there's a really annoying blonde gymnast who can't stop popping up at the worst moments and demanding that Kendall help her. If Kendall doesn't want people to think she's crazy and always talking to herself, she'll have to get busy and get rid of this perky pest. Then she can go back to crushing on the cute boy in her math class. And that's a whole other problem...

Barnholdt (Fake Me a Match) kicks off a lighthearted and entertaining series starring seventh-grader Kendall Williams, a detective for the dead. Kendall has seen ghosts her entire life, and she learned early on that the best way to get rid of them is to help them tie up loose ends and "move into the afterlife." Daniella, the pushy teenage ghost of a former cheerleader, insists that Kendall find one of her friends, but Kendall has much more on her mind-namely terrible math grades, minor family dramas, and a crush on classmate Brandon. Then, to further complicate Kendall's life, an unusually creepy ghost visits with an indecipherable threat. Stylish and creative Kendall, who does her hair to match her mood, is a highly relatable protagonist, and her energetic narration is full of humor (her snarky conversations with Daniella are particularly fun). Barnholdt provides steady suspense and approaches dark topics with a refreshing dose of levity; her cliffhanger ending will leave readers eager for the sequel. Ages 9-12.

Gr 4-8-Seventh-grader Kendall Williams is able to see and communicate with ghosts. She has had this ability her entire life, but stopped mentioning it some time ago. If she helps the ghosts, they are able to move on into the afterlife, and they leave. She meets a gymnast ghost who is trying to move on, but the trick is figuring out what Danielle needs to do to actually get there. Kendall tries to maintain a semblance of a normal life; she and her best friend are both interested in boys. Kendall likes Brandon, and Ellie likes his best friend. Trying to figure out if Brandon likes her back, what to wear, and how she should style her hair take up a good deal of Kendall's time that's not occupied by school or helping ghosts. Other drama comes from her father's possible relationship with a neighbor and the fact that Brandon's mother, who is also a ghost, has been randomly showing up as well. Kendall is able to help Danielle, but there are a lot of issues left unresolved, signaling that there is sure to be a sequel.-Jesten Ray, Seattle Public Library, WA (c) Copyright 2013.
