Suddenly Supernatural
Scaredy Kat book 2

by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel


Kat's mother is a medium and when Kat turned thirteen, she inherited the family "gift," though sometimes seeing spirits doesn't make her feel especially gifted. In this second book in the series, Kat accidentally photographs a boy in the house next door where no one lives. She feels drawn to help this boy's spirit but soon discovers he's not the only spirit in that house! Kat isn't sure she wants to mix it up with the powerful ghosts in the empty house, in fact, she might not want to be a medium at all. The author has done a great job with the creation of Kat, who manages to be totally terrified without seeming weak or wimpy. Her confusion and conflict over family relationships and helping others rings totally true to the many things real tweens face—but with the added bonus of ghosts! The book is a quick read, and sure to be a tween favorite. If you have a reluctant girl reader in your family, consider waving Suddenly Supernatural under her nose—she'll snap it up so fast, it's spooky!
