Knowing that books are often better than the movies they're turned into, I gave this a go, despite the cheesy-looking previews I've seen. Happily, the book is pretty decent -- a cute, humorous tale of a boy born with the ability to talk to ghosts, and a family inheritance/curse that could affect the fate of his entire town. Spoiler: it all turns out okay...

Anthony B I believe this is a novelization of the screen play, so there is a good chance the movie probably presents the story better than this novelization.
