My name is Susannah Simon, and I am a mediator--a liaison between the living and the dead. If you think this gets in the way of my attempt at a normal sixteen-year-old, you'd be right. You try going to the mall while constantly being accosted by the undead.
Not that this is a bad thing all the time. Like, for example, when I discovered my bedroom is haunted by Jesse, the ghost of a nineteenth-century hottie. While I haven't made much progress with him (only one kiss so far), I remain optimistic. Jesse's inexplicable resistance to my charms is not my only obstacle, though: There's this other guy. A live one, who has the same gift of gab with the undead I have. In the same way I'm after Jesse, this guy is after me. And he knows hot to send Jesse to the Great Beyond. For good.
