I wasn't big on the Mediator series when it was for young adults, but I was curious as to what Cabot would do when the book was for adults.

Man, I didn't like it.

Background: Suze Simon is a "mediator," that means she can see and communicate with ghosts and help them move on. Her boyfriend, Jesse, used to be a ghost. (I don't know how that part works, i haven't read the other books.)

So as the book, opens, Suze is bidding on some boots on ebay when she gets an e-mail from a guy who apparently tried to rape her in high school, saying he bought Suze's childhood home.

Suze immediately calls this guy up to yell at him, whereupon he tells her that he plans to demolish said childhood home, in which case, her ex-ghost boyfriend MAY just turn into a demon or some shit.

In exchange for not tearing down the house, he wants Suze to let him rape her.

And she actually considers it!

Also, I get that there may be a swear jar at her job in a catholic school, but seeing as she does not get PAID for said job, it is kind of an asshole concept.

And her friends also doing this to her is beyond the pale. The entire thing is a ridiculous holdover from when the books were for children, and seems like a space-filler to me.

I'm sure everything worked out for Suze, but I didn't stick around to find out.
