Crewe, Megan Give Up the Ghost, 244 p. Henry Holt, 2009. $16.99. Content: PG (some underage drinking). Sexual Content: PG-13 (off page sexual situations). Since her older sister died, Cass has been able to see ghosts – her sister and others. Already labeled an outcast by her by her former best friend, Cass uses insider info from the school bound ghosts to keep the kids at school in line, making herself more of an outcast. Then one of the “bestest and brightest” asks Cass for her help and Cass reaches out to Tim, she finds herself becoming more entwined than she ever wanted to be. This is not really a ghost story, though it does involve ghosts – it is really a story about a young lady building walls to protect herself with whatever tools come her way. What really got to me was the authentic reaction of Cass’s former best friend, who hurt Cass so badly in middle school, who just brushes the whole incident off as nothing much – can’t Cass just ‘get over it”. Kids on the fringe will find much about themselves in this book. The “Pops” will like it, but won’t “get” it. MS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
