HAUNTED A Tale of the Mediator

by | Read by Alanna Ubach

Young Adult • 2 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Susannah Simon is not a normal 16-year-old. As a mediator, she can talk to, touch, and even have a crush on ghosts . . . a certain nineteenth-century ghost in particular. Classmate Paul Slater, who shares her talent but is of dubious moral character, insists that Susannah hang her heart on the living, specifically him. This harsh abridgment leaves too many background and plot holes to keep listeners satisfied. Alanna Ubach bears this burden well and delivers a great teen protagonist. While she depicts promising character variations, she needs to work on pacing. The ability to sound like a teenager without compromising narration is a true narrator's challenge. J.M.S.
