The Mediator: Shadowland

Meg Cabot, author of The Mediator series, and
various other books.
Title: Shadowland
Author: Meg Cabot
Genre: Fiction
Publisher: Avon
Publication Date: January 2005
Paperback: 284

Summary: Suze is a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.

But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind ... and Suze happens to be in the way.

Book Review:
I have to say that I devoured this book. Shadowland was another solid book. I often enjoy Meg Cabot's books, and this one was no disappointment. It wasn't one of those deep books though. It's one of those books that you read for fun. Meg Cabot did a decent job at creating the plot and the characters. There wasn't really anything that stood out. I only just got around to reading this book, and it wasn't memorable. I enjoyed it and it was a quick read which was nice. When I was reading it I did get into the story, but once it ended I kinda forgot about it. It's one of those books that are pretty good, and that you like, but doesn't really stick with you. Overall pretty good.

Rating: B

Notable Quotes:
"I'm sorry, Heather, but everything was not just fine before I got here. You know how I know that? Because you're dead. Okay? You are dead. Dead people don't have lockers, or best friends, or boyfriends. You know why? Because they're dead.-Suze Simon" 
"They just kept grinning at me from over the stupid sign, Dopey because
he's too dumb to know any better, Doc because – well, I guess because he might have been glad to see
me. Doc's weird that way. Sleepy, the oldest, just stood there, looking … well, sleepy."
