Her mom remarried a man named Anthony who has three boys who she likes to call Sleepy, Dopey, and Doc. This means she had to move all the way from New York to California and leave her best friend Gina Suze plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall and beach, but the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's an angry ghost named Heather, a girl who committed suicide over Christmas break who wants to go back to her normal life and she seems to think Suze is in the way.

This book starts off a great series by Meg Cabot and it really is interesting. The next five books are just as good. This series combines mystery, suspense, humor, and romance, and so will appeal to teens with different tastes in reading. I also recommend that all of Meg Cabot's fans give it a try,even though this series is very different than her other books, in my opinion, it's one of her best!

I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 glasses

Maybe they should have listened to their mom after all!

I absolutely loved this book. The book is filled with humor and laugh out loud moments that keep you entertained. Rachel is your typical 14 year old besides the Magical aspect. Rachel and Miri are a great pair, the situations Rachel gets herself into are hilarious, and the overall feeling is that life is hard, but sometimes you just have to deal with it.

This Definitely receives a 5 out 5 glasses :]
