Well that was interesting. The book was most certainly written for the audiences of those who have yet to have devolved body parts and have voiced drop. But still, I remember seeing these books in scholastic magazine, back in the day when my family used to actually order from it. I had always wanted to read them but was "too young" for them.
In this particular story, I liked the idea of having a ghost that is your best friend, despite being slimed and scared half to death all time.
In this literary world, ghosts seem to be very real and in fact very dangerous. So watch out, there are many more ways you can wind up dead..."and each day we live, we face, 1000 ways to die."
