Suze can see and communicate with the dead (turn Odd Thomas into a teenage girl who is far more feisty and ready to kick ass at a moment's notice) only no one really knows this about her. She lives in California with her mom, stepfather, stepbrothers and the ghost that just happens to haunt her bedroom (and who she happens to be in love with). In this particular volume, Suze has to deal with Paul, a "shifter" that is a little too interested in Suze, horribly blistered feet, and the fact that her stepbrother is planning a major party while their parents are out of town. Needless to say, Suze's life is pretty stressful.
These books are relatively different from most of Cabot's other teen books (well, those written at that time). This series isn't as girly as some of her other books and of course focuses more on the paranormal. I don't like it nearly as much as I like The Princess Diaries or 1-800-Where-R-U series. I think that readers who enjoyed Abandon will be into this series (and vice versa). I do really like that Cabot covers a range of topics and genres in her books and doesn't just re-tell the same story over and over again.
