Playing with Fire by Phoebe Rivers - ADVISABLE

Rivers, Phoebe Playing with Fire, 152 p. Simon and Shuster, 2013.  $16.  Content: G (some danger, but nothing graphic – unless you don’t like the paranormal).  

Sara wants to tell her best friend Lily about her powers to see and talk to ghosts.  When the girls are invited to a week at a teen-friendly family vacation spot, she thinks she has found a perfect time.  Sara’s plans are derailed by a pushy newcomer and a vicious, dangerous ghost.  This time their lives may be in danger if Sara can’t put together the courage to tell her friend and defeat the ghost.  

I like Rivers’ supernatural series – it is just scary enough, without being pathological.  

EL – ADVISABLE.  Cindy, Library Teacher.
