This was a good who-done-it mystery where the murdered girl investigates her own death. Shari and her friends are at a party when they decide to play at the occult. They awaken a spirit and next thing we know, Shari is dead. Accident or murder. There were several twists and turn in the plot that I would never have expected.
These sound like typical assortment of teens, self absorbed, superficial and materialistic. i think that many teen readers would be able to relate to the characters. I found the response of the teens to Shari's death realistic, some acted in ways I might expect, yet others not at all.
This book could be helpful to a teen who is trying to cope with the loss of another teen
