Sinopsys – Being a mediator doesn’t exactly make Susannah Simon your typical sixteen-year-old. Her job is to ease the path for the unhappy dead to their final resting place. Not all ghouls want to be guided, but Suze is inclined to kick some serious ghost butt if she has to. Now she’s moved to California with her new stepfamily and is starting out at a brand-new school. From her first day, her mediator skills are tested to the max when Suze finds herself the target of the murderous spirit of ex-class beauty, Heather. At least she’s sharing her new bedroom with Jesse, who just happens to be “the” hottest ghost in history. Suze is totally warm for his form and is determined to win the heart of the sexiest spirit in town. But can this girl get her ghost?

                 Susannah Simon would definitely be a normal teenager, with a widowed mother and a grandmother living quietly, or trying to, in the streets of New York. However his mother had other plans, she got to meet Andy and after ten years widow rediscovered happiness. is clear that for Suze was a great change to replace the clouded Apple by sunny California  city.

”I knew when I’d agreed to move with my mom to California that I’d be in for lots of changes(…) So I accepted Andy, and I accepted his three sons, and I accepted the fact that I was going to have to leave behind everything I had ever known and loved – my best friend, my grandmother, bagels, SoHo – in order to give my mom the happiness she deserved.”
Love you To Death. p.8

    The major problem that was taking her nights sleep would be the fact that his new school has more than one hundred years. or that your new home, specifically your room already has a resident. 
Someone who is not part of your family, or someone else who can see.
    confused? Our Suze just do not get it is not a normal teenager. she can see, touch and talk to ghosts. And she only discovered when his father died, because though tentacem explain that she would never see him …

”My dad was dead, yeah. But I did see him again.(…) His favorite thing to do is suddenly materialize when I least expect it. It’s kind of annoying.
                                                                                                                   Love you To Death. p.13
