The mediator: Shadowland

Shadowland (The Mediator, #1)Shadowland by Meg Cabot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Suze is just your average sixteen year old girl. Except she has the ability to see and interact with ghosts. When she moves across the country to live with your mother and her new stepfather she thinks it will be the end of her entanglement with the afterlife...but the house turns out to be from the eighteenth century as does the hot guy ghost invading her room...oh and her school is also older than the hills and the only reason there's space for her in school is because some girl offed herself and is now pissed off and haunting the place.

Ah...the mediator series. I read and loved these as a teenager. I had such an incredible crush on Jesse. And who wouldn't? He's a hero who is always there to help Suze out when she needs but can also step back and let her kick butt. He's also a consummate gentleman.

Meg Cabot wrote this with such intricate detail that even the most cynical reader could picture the events described in their minds eyes.

Suze is sassy and vulnerable at the same time and is portrayed as a teenage girl not as being wise beyond her years. There is seriousness mixed in with humour.
Once again as I was as a teenager, I am hooked on this series and swooning for Jesse.
