Cass McKenna much prefers ghosts over "breathers." Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable, and they know the dirt on everybody . . . and Cass loves dirt. She's on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of the poseurs in her school. But when the vice president of the student council discovers her secret, Cass's whole scheme is threatened. So when Tim asks her to help him contact his recently deceased mother, Cass reluctantly agrees. As Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim's life, she's surprised to realize he's not so bad--and he needs help more desperately than anyone else suspects. Maybe it's time to give the living another chance. . . .

Review quote

“Crewe’s first effort will make readers wonder what else she’s got up her sleeve.”—"Kirkus Reviews"
“This coming-of-age novel avoids unrealistically neat moments of closure—it will make readers hurt, and maybe even believe.”—"Publishers Weekly"
“A supernatural twist on the ‘Mean Girls’ plot provides page-turning action. . . . Mysterious plot elements and the budding relationship between Cass and the VP will quickly engage reluctant readers.”—"School Library Journal"
“A school-dynamics story with a great original hook.”—"The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books"
