SO HERE I am spending spring break in California with my best friend, Junie. Our chaperone is a teenager, like us. And soon I’ll get to hang out with the coolest, cutest boy in the Southwest. Life is so good.

Except I should tell you that I’m not actually in San Diego for fun. Even though I’m a normal person who likes normal stuff—friends, clothes, the mall—I’m supposed to be solving a mystery, one that involves a rhino heist and a crazy chef. And I have to do it because my supercop mom is counting on me. Did I mention she’s a ghost? A ghost who can make
contact with only one person. Me, Sherry Holmes Baldwin. My mom is flunking out of the Academy of Spirits, and if I don’t help her, she’ll be banished to an afterlife for ghost failures.

But . . . I so don’t do mysteries.

    This is also a great book to the series!It's about Sherry going to California for Spring Break with her best friend Junie.On the flight there, she worries Junie isn't "cool" enough for her and they both are mad and not speaking to each other by the time the flight ends.As usual,Sherry's ghost mom is with her and helps her solve another interesting mystery.I really like these books because Sherry's mom died years ago and she is like a symbol to the story.Sherry has a little brother too.In one of the books, they meet up at a restraunt and Sherry and her brother get to visit with their mom.That part was really touching to read for me.Berrie Summy is an awesome writer and I wish she would write more books to add to this series...:(
