This fits the bill perfectly for a good-but-not-taxing YA winter’s weekend read: an easy to get into (I imagine even for reluctant readers), creepy and occasionally terrifying ghost story set in London, mainly around a boarding school attended by American protagonist Rory. Premise: after having a near-death experience (in Rory’s case, embarrassingly choking in the dining hall on one of the first nights at her new school), some people are able to see ghosts--that at first they might not realize are ghosts. Right around the time Rory gains this sight, there happens to be a serial-killing ghost haunting London: corporeal enough to commit gruesome murders, but invisible to security cameras. The police, looking for a non-ghost perp, aren’t ever going to catch him. And, having seen her eyes register him in a crowd, he knows that Rory can see him. Fun, spooky, and strong enough that I immediately requested the sequel after finishing.
