I SO DON'T DO SPOOKY by BARRIE SUMMY
For a fun mystery read with a paranormal twist, check out I So Don't Do Spooky by Barrie Summy. Sherry's mother was killed while serving as a policewoman for the city of Phoenix. However, Sherry can still talk to her ghost. Because her mother was a great detective when she was alive, the Ghost Academy uses her to solve spooky mysteries. Sherry seems to have inherited her mother's gift as well, so she also helps the Academy with their mysteries.
In this particular book, Sherry's stepmother Paula is being stalked and it's up to Sherry and her mother to figure out the who and why. The suspects include a student who is failing one of Paula's classes, students from another school, a dead principal, and maybe a few other possible ghosts. Just when you think you have it figured out, there's another twist to throw you off. This is a fun relatively non-spooky mystery for younger fans of the Dead Is and Maggie Quinn series or older fans of Nancy Drew.
