Remembrance by Meg Cabot
"You can take the boy out of the darkness.
But you can’t take the darkness out of the boy.
All Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and since becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).
But when she’s hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn’t all that’s coming back to haunt her. Old ghosts as well as new ones are coming out of the woodwork, some to test her, some to vex her, and it isn’t only because she’s a mediator, gifted with second sight.
From a sophomore haunted by the murderous specter of a child, to ghosts of a very different kind—including Paul Slater, Suze’s ex, who shows up to make a bargain Suze is certain must have come from the Devil himself—Suze isn’t sure she’ll make it through the semester, let alone to her wedding night.
Suze is used to striking first and asking questions later. But what happens when ghosts from her past—including one she found nearly impossible to resist—strike first?
What happens when old ghosts come back to haunt you?
If you’re a mediator, you might have to kick a little ass."- summary from Amazon
I was so excited to read this latest Mediator series addition that I pretty much started reading it as soon as it was given to me last November by Meg herself. I absolutely loved being able to read a new Suze Simon adventure and be immersed back in Suze's sarcastic voice and her life with Jesse. It's really cool to read this book (and Royal Wedding last year) and seeing one of your favorite teen characters all grown up and how everyone else in her life grew up too and what they're all doing now. It was so much fun to catch up with everyone again. The central ghost mystery in the book was really interesting and took some crazy and dark turns throughout the novel. It was page-turning, to say the least. I really hope Meg does another book in this series (though I do also have the novella, Proposal, to read too if she doesn't) because I loved spending time with these characters again on a new adventure. I highly recommend reading this new book, and if you haven't read the Mediator series at all, please give it a go. It's such a fantastic, humorous, and scary series by an amazing author.
