My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Chris Myers uses Date with the Dead to explore the most impressionable relationships for a teenager. Friendship, young love and the stress of falling in with mum's plans are some of the challenges Jolie faces in her new school. This book was a much lighter version of The Ghost Whisperer tv series and the old cat man loved it.
I liked Chris Myers' snappy writing. From start to finish, the reader has a clear sense of what is happening. Drew's character was more important to me because he was the one who propelled Jolie towards who she could be. In terms of character, Jolie is exceptional and it's really hard not to fall in love with this "ripster." If there was one thing about the book I did not like, it did sometimes feel there were too many characters grabbing the limelight from Jolie.
The cat man's favourite scene? When they the sheriff that someone shot Distal and he insists he doesn't believe in ghosts. The irony of it all as he soon starts to soften towards Jolie's 'abilities.' Highly recommended.
