Gilda Joyce is 13 years old and lives in Michigan with her mother and older brother. Gilda's father died a few years ago and ever since then she has been trying to learn to communicate with the spirit world.
Gilda is determined to become a psychic investigator and she remembers that her mother's cousin's sister died by jumping out of a window, Gilda decides that should be her first case.
Before Gilda knows it she is on her way to San Francisco for the summer and hopefully to solve her very first case.
What can I say about Gilda? I liked her a lot. She's weird, but I think that's awesome. And she is blunt. Some of the things she says can definitely be taken as rude, but she's not really a rude character. She can actually be pretty funny. But I think she is a complex character, really. She may seem weird and silly, but there is really a lot to her.
I liked Juliet too, once her character started developing more. She is definitely more than just a rich girl. I like her and Gilda's interactions with each other.
As for the story itself, I liked it quite a bit. It's fast-paced and entertaining. But I like how it deals with death, how the two main characters still continue to talk to those they love that passed on. And with doing so, it really seems to help them be able to move on with their life.
The only thing I didn't like was the use of a Ouija board. I'm a paranormal investigator and have been for more than 10 years. I've seen ghosts since I was a kid. The Ouija board is something not to be messed with. It's not just a game.
Besides that, the story was really good and I really loved the main characters. I'm definitely going to read the rest of this series.
