What happens when a medium is afraid of the spirits she sees?

Kat can see spirits, but what's even worse is the fact that spirits, especially the exceptionally needy ones, can see her. As this medium-in-training discovers, there's really no way to run from spirits, and sometimes being sought out by a whole bunch of dead people can be pretty scary. So when their exploration

This is a terrific series for tween readers who are into Paranormal reads. Really great books for boys and girls, even though the main character is a girl, it is not girly. Great lessons and role models for quirky kids.

Kat is still dealing with the whole teen medium issues, kinda tough when you are afraid of the ghosts. She has some trials get get through, but in the end she comes to terms with things. There are a few scarier moments in this book than the last one. We get a little more into the
Reading Vacation


In the first Suddenly Supernatural book, School Spirit, Kat had just gained her powers. This time around, Kat is becoming more comfortable with the special gift she has been given. She is not as reluctant to use them, and she is not quite as overwhelmed by them. I liked reading about Kat’s transformation.

Kat feels the presence of many spirits who follow her around. This can be scary for her and she must learn to not feel so freaked out by it all. In particular, her mother’s friend, Orin, i

Suddenly Supernatural is the perfect paranormal series for tweens. When I was finished reading, I passed these along to my favorite tween reader and future librarian Emily. (I used to babysit Emily and we've bonded over our love of books. I'm constantly supplying her with a new stack every time I see her, much to her parents chagrin!)
Kat and Jac are great characters, and I think readers can relate to their middle school struggles. Jac is clashing over the future of her cello career with her mom
My 7-year-old and 10-year-old both really enjoyed this book, though there were moments they both found incredibly scary, two or three I think. Those scary parts were rather brief and didn't deter either from wanting to see how the story ended. It was a quick read and the supernatural elements were balance nicely with the trials of just growing up and finding your independence. A couple of subplots added to the enjoyment and though the book was short everything worked. I also enjoyed the book, it ...more

This was alright. I liked the first book a lot better. I don't like the fact that Kat is always lying to her mother and won't ever tell her about the ghostly things that go on. Then there's the fact that she complains that she hates lying to her mother. It's a very annoying trait that had me rolling my eyes an awful lot. My interest in reading the next book is based soley on the fact that the first book was great, so I know the author can do better.

Uh, Oh...baca ini emang bikin aq jadi celingukan sendiri. Ngga tenang hahaha pengen ketawa tapi yaa, ngeri juga. Gpp, terapi...terapi...
Cerita hantu versi Kimmel emang ngga senyantai Cabot, hampir mirip Anderson, karena si Kat dan si May Bird masih punya rasa takut (sama kaya gw). Aq rasa kalo si Suze mah emang udah dari sono-nya ngga takut and ngga percaya hantu mungkin. Di buku yang kedua aq mulai bisa menilai gaya tulisan Kimmel, yang suka menampilkan tokoh2 keren di tengah2, dan aq mulai suk

This is the second book in the Suddenly Supernatural series by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel. Our oldest enjoys stories about ghosts and I thought she could relate to the main character, Kat. The story is certainly a bit lighter than some of the other books she's been reading lately.

We listened to the story narrated by Allyson Ryan on audio CD. It was great to take a break from reading aloud and listen to someone else read the story to us.

The story is engaging and dramatic (and not too scary), but some

I found this one okay, compared to School Spirit. It was interesting to take one a person with the ability to heal and use energy.

I didn't find Kat annoying, even though it was in the first person point of view. She understands that her mom needs to be happy, she is rightfully angry at her dad for leaving. She is the type of person that knows what she is doing is wrong, but her intuition is leading her in the right path. I didn't agree on Kat not talking to her mom about it. I understand that yo
Hampir mirip dengan seri Mediatornya Meg Cabot, hanya saja tanpa ada unsur romantisme. Dan karena saya baru baca The Vampire Academy sebelum baca buku ini, saya jadi nangkep kemiripan, sama sama ada adegan horornya. Yang bikin saya takut adalah ketika Kat masuk rumah itu untuk kedua kalinya trus digangguin, pintu lemari kebuka sendiri, ada suara kursi diseret, wuaaa…serem.

Padahal sebenernya gak serem serem banget. Seperti mediator, hantunya itu jahat, mungkin agak sedikit caper juga. Oh ya! Satu

I enjoyed this book. I understand this series is geared towards children, but I think that there is no reason an adult can't enjoy them as well. I love the characters in this series. I enjoyed the introduction of the new character in Orin in this book. I think the author does a great job at portraying how a girl of Kat's age would go through different feelings and emotions at the introduction of a male-friend of her mom's. I really enjoy the paranormal theme of these stories and with the more I ...more

Kat and Jac are back. Jac is still having problems with her controlling mother and Kat is telling her Mom less as she seeks some independance. This time around the story centers on the house next door instead of school.

Kat decides to use the house next door for part of her class project. While taking pictures of the house she accidently snaps one of a boy looking at her. She goes over to meet him and can't figure out why he seems to ignore her. Maybe it's because the house has been empty for a l

The second book of this series was as cute as the first. I'm not sure how much I like the audiobook reader. It started to wear on me a bit. I liked the mystery of this one. The story was intriguing, and I loved the suspense and creepiness of the haunted house. I wanted more of it.

A good continuation of the story. I am enjoying this juvenile mystery. It has enough description of the paranormal to take fear away from children without making them fearless. This is a simpler mystery and seemed quick compared to the first mystery.

Still a fun series for a younger audience. Nothing too scary, but fun enough to keep my 9 year old attentive.

3.5 stars

I liked this one as well, but it definitely gets more into the astrology/psychic world--more terms are explained, more version of seeing beyond the natural world are explored. That's a turn-off for me, but I like the characters well enough that I'd like to see their story through.

Boght this at the book fair, and will be cataloging it soon for my kiddos, but I wanted to read it first. I thought book one actually was chill inducing for a middle reader book, so was looking forward to trying this one. As a kid who LOVED ghost stories and ghost books and TV (Remember "Are you Afraid of the Dark" 90's kids?) this really appealed to me even as an adult now. I think my students will really like it, it wasn't scary enough to give nightmares, but creepy in ways that I know my 5th ...more

cute second book in the suddenly supernatural (a.k.a. i was a teenaged medium) series. last weekend i watched both "ghost whisperer" and "ghost town," so maybe i'm just in the mood. i like how lighthearted the books are, in spite of the subject which can - and has been - be treated with way more angst in a different sort of tale. kat's a pretty appealing character, as are the supporting characters and there's enough promise here as to what-might-occur in book three to keep me looking forward to ...more

In the second book of the Suddenly Supernatural series-Scaredy Kat, kat's little trip to the abandon house across the street my have been more that expected. All she wanted was to have a look inside, but what she finds is the spirit of a boy. The thing is, she cant figure out what happened to him or why he couldn't move on. With the spirit of a man that seems to want to harm her, how can she save the little boy. With the help of Orin will she be able to help the boy in the house next door?

Highly entertaining. Thought provoking. Lively, real characters which help to move a fun and entertaining plot.

It was ok, bagusan yang pertama si petualangan Kat lebih seru, di sini banyakan membahas bola-bola arwah dan sedikit membosanka malah menurut saya rada gelap juga sih. Memang buku ini berkisah soal hantu tapi soal transfer energi dan sebagainya itu membuat saya merasa sedikit tidak nyaman, apalagi bukankah ini ditujukan untuk remaja ya?

Alamak, sepertinya memang harus rehat sejenak baca YA dan fantasi. *berkutat kembali dengan Girl with Dragon Tattoo*

Buku yang Ok. Emosi si Kat dan Jac terlukiskan dengan baik dengan segala kompleksitas dunia remaja. Kerapuhan Kat dalam menghadapi dunia arwah bisa ikut sy rasakan dan tulisannya (walau terjemahan) terasa hidup. Buku yang sangat enak buat dinikmati walau awalnya agak lamban. Si penulis juga cukup matang dalam membuat novel ini dengan melakukan riset mengenai dunia arwah dan supernatural sehingga kisahnya terkesan hidup.

Well I just love this series it just wonderful. This book is great for those who like ghost but are in middle school to. This is about Kat and Jac and some of the adventures they have. And Kat has to over come her fear and really start to help to dead move on. Learns some new things about her self she would have never known be for about her self. And of course Jac and there with her and they become even stronger friends.
