Haunted Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Haunted

Suze had just had an exhausting summer vacation and was happy to be going back to school where things were normal. Unfortunately for Suze, her life was just going to get weirder. For one thing, the guy who haunted her nightmares because he just tried to kill her, the evil Paul Slater, is now going to her high school. For another, Jesse, the love of her life who just happens to be a 150-year old ghost haunting her room, has been avoiding her since that great kiss they had shared a few weeks ago. Then there was Sleepy's new college friend, who just happened to have his dead brother tagging along behind him insisting that he deserved to live and his brother should be the one who was dead. Of course, Suze still had to worry about student elections, her social life and how those new shoes she bought were just killing her! Looks like it is going to be another busy year in the life of Suze Simon, Mediator.

I enjoyed this book, but I think that it is the weakest of the Mediator series. For one thing, Suze spends a lot more time being a girl and being scared than in the other books. For another, it just wasn't as funny and the author dropped the Sleepy, Dopey & Doc nicknames for her stepbrothers - hello, who the heck are Jake, Brad and David? Anyway, I would have to say that this, the fifth book in the series, was a bit of a letdown, but it was still a great book. Even when Cabot/Carroll isn't at the top of her game, she is still a great author!
