Synopsis: Suze is a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.



Thoughts:  I love you Meg. Will you marry me?

Nah, just kidding (mostly). Everything she writes, I love. All of her adult and young adult books are addicting. I haven't read her kid/tween selections yet, but I'll get there sooner or later. For now let's start on her series The Mediator. The main character Suze is a kick ass character that can see ghosts that need help passing over to the afterlife. She's strong willed, quick on her feet, street smart, real, and good with weapons. Not like swords or hammers will do anything to a ghost, but they'll for sure slow one down. On her first day in her moms new house she finds a hot ghost named Jesse and tries to get him to leave. His argument? I was here first. Pretty legit reason; Suze copes with a really attractive spanish speaking ghost that not only wont leave her alone but protects her when other spirits try to harm her... which is so adorable. They become a really good team and feelings start to grow.

Her mother remarried when her father died (a father she still sees from time to time *wink wink*) and now she's stuck with three brothers. Suze names them after Snow Whites dwarfs because their personality matches. There's Sleepy (the oldest and I believe to be written like he does marijuana), Dopey (same age as her and attractive but not too bright), and Doc (because he's really smart). Doc sometimes helps Suze on her adventures and he figures out about Jesse pretty quickly. There's lots of humor in it as well so you'll find yourself laughing in some of the situations she puts herself in.

The series is action packed and written very well. The character development progression is great, I didn't think there were any slow parts in any of the books, her friends are likable, and the cutesy romance doesn't disappoint. You'll get addicted fast and you're welcome for recommending such a great book. *pats self on back*

I read this series for the first time (I say first time cause I have read this series completely six times or more, I keep forgetting) five years ago. I love it still and that's why have the paperback copies of the series which was difficult cause I had to order it online and wait for a month for the arrival of all the books! Totally worth the wait!
And I like the original covers not the ones that come in Bind up Volume!

And I am glad that u Loved the series as well !

I've loved this series! This was my first ever paranormal read when I was still a teen:) I hope you get to read the other books as well:) Doc is one of my faves, he's such a sweetheart! :)

Oh I do get to read other books ! Its just the older ones that are hard to find ! If you loved The Mediator Series I bet you would love 'Educating Caroline' by Meg under her pseudonym name Patricia Cabot !

Jesse is so sweet XD

This is one of my favorite series from Meg Cabot. Loved this series soooo...much. Jesse is so adorable. The most adorable ghost ever :D

I read this series after I read Abandon and Loved It! And I fell head over heels for this series. I read every book in about 3 days, and felt like crying when it was over. I loved it. It made me laugh, and cry and smile and cringe and be angry and happy! Love it! Love your review of it!
