This is a book written for teenagers, and it probably doesn't hurt if the reader is already predisposed to the Christian message. It has a good plot with some interesting characters, but surprisingly few supernatural occurences in the plot. The story is about a Father-Mother-Sister-Brother investigation team who shows up at an Oregon high school ready to investigate students who are in comas after appearing to have seen a ghost. It turns out that these students were actually bullies to the less socially connected of the student body, and are receiving the vengeance that all picked-on kids wish they could dish out when receiving that kind of unwanted attention. Anyway, the action is fast-paced, realistic, and consuming. The plot is believable, and the resolution also one that does not stretch the boundaries of credulity. If you can handle the subliminal message, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He is the Lord of the Universe, then you will enjoy this excellent romp through mystery.
