The Harder the Fall

(Book #2 of Girl Meets Ghost)
For Ages: 9 - 14
Kendall has a crush—and the ghost of his mother has something to say about it. The second book in a hilariously haunting tween series that Kirkus Reviews calls “bright, bubbly fun.”

Kendall Williams talks to dead people all the time. Like it or not, it’s kind of her thing—the ghosts need her help resolving issues from when they were alive, and she’s good at figuring out their problems.

What she can’t figure out, however, is why the ghost of her crush’s mother is haunting her. Add to that her ghost-client’s obnoxious brother who thinks Kendall is crushing on him, her father who is getting serious with his girlfriend, and her BFF who thinks Kendall’s losing her mind, and it’s enough to make this “ghost whisperer” seriously consider getting out of the ghost-helping business once and for all!
