If fourteen-year-old Kirra is having a mid-life crisis now then it doesn't bode well for her life expectancy. Her so-called friends bully her, whatever semblance of a mother she had has been drowned at the bottom of a gin bottle ever since her dad left them for another woman, and now a teenage ghost is speaking to her through a broken phone booth. Kirra and the ghost make a pact. She'll prove who murdered him almost twenty years ago if he makes her popular, gets her parents back together, and he promises not to haunt her. Things aren't so simple, however, and Kirra realises that people can be haunted in more ways than one.

Loved, loved, loved this young adult. Over. Set in a small Australian coastal town, 14 year old Kirra is the heroine of the story. Living in a dysfunctional family and dealing with the "mean girls" at school, life is not fun for Kirra. Then comes the twist - a mysterious phone call sets Kirra on a path of action and realization.
