Shadowed Summer

by Saundra Mitchell

Summary: Bored and looking for something to do in their small town, friends Iris and Collette hang out in the cemetery pretending to cast spells and call up spirits. But then, Iris actually hears someone whispering in her ear. Could it be the ghost of Elijah the local boy whose death years ago was never explained? The girls' summer becomes anything but boring as they start looking into Elijah's death and Iris continues to be haunted by a restless spirit.
Thoughts: This is a suspenseful novel that pulled me in from the beginning. I could easily relate to the girls' search for something to do, and then I was immediately captivated by the mystery. Also, the novel emphasizes the struggles of friendship and romance which added depth and realism to the supernatural story.
