Meet Susannah Simon: she's a typical teenage girl, who just happens to be a ghost-hunter ...oh, and she's also dead-over-heels for Jesse - the sexiest spook ever! But can this girl get her ghost? In "Love You to Death", Suze arrives in California and has barely unpacked when her mediator skills are put to the test. A vicious spirit in her new school is hell-bent on making her life a complete nightmare, but Suze is more than ready to kick some serious ghost butt if she has to. In "High Stakes", Suze's new life is looking up - cool friends, pool parties and getting to know Jesse (swoon), but then a desperate spirit asks for her help. Suddenly she's on the trail of a creepy local businessman, who just might be a vampire. Life just got dead complicated. more

Our customer reviews

I am going to review this series altogether rather than book by book. The Mediator series is about Susannah Simon (Suze as she likes to be called), a sixteen year old girl who is a mediator, which means she can see and speak to the dead. She helps them with any unfinished business they have on earth so that they can pass on, and sometimes she has to kick ghost butt. The story starts with Suze moving from New York to California to live with her mother's new husband Andy and his three sons, David, Brad and Jake or as Suze calls them, Doc, Dopey and Sleepy. On arrival at her new house, she discovers that her bedroom is occupied by the ghost of Jesse, a hot guy who died about 150 years previous, around the age of 20. When she starts at her new school, she meets another mediator, the first one she's ever met, and they, with the help of Jesse, kick some ghost butt throughout the series. These books were a fantastic read. I really liked Meg's writing style. Suze was a great character, witty and sarcastic and she was accompanied here by many great characters, I liked them all, even the ones that weren't supposed to be liked lol. The first three books were enjoyable but I felt the series really took off from book 4. A new character is introduced and a kind of weird love triangle begins. The ending to this book was just perfect. It really finished up the series very well. I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone interested in paranormal romance. I LOVED more

Sussanah Simon appears to be the typical teenager. But she's not. Actually, she's a mediator, gifted with the ability to see ghosts that are trapped and help them move on. But not all spirits want to do that, so, Susannah has to get tough. Then the whole situation gets even more complicated when a drop-dead-gorgeous ghost haunts her bedroom. And the adventure begins...! Meg Cabot is trully gifted with the ability to write!And her books are not only for teenagers, but can actually entertain readers of all ages! The best thing i really enjoyed with the Mediator series was that it was like you could actually hear Susannah talk, think, act, etc. It was like she was right next to you telling the story!The smart-ass remarks, the quick way of thinking, the typical teenager but the responsible adult at the same time! I was caught laughing all by myself so many times, that it started being ridiculous! But Sussanah rocks!! Cabot was able to create a character that you can relate to and actually admire!! The only disapointment was the fact that the Mediator series are completed in 6 books (or 3 volumes of 2 books each), when i sooo wanted some more of Susan and Jesse's story!Well, the good part is that on the whole, the Mediator series were very satisfying and purely addictive!!show more
