Ghosts might not be heavy, but the guilt Heather's best friend, Xavier, is carrying around for his dead little brother weighs at least a ton. Of course, just as Heather's crush, Drew Blanton, shows some interest in her, Xavier's haintly brother Stevie shows up.
Ten-year-old Stevie has a simple request--he'll only move on if Heather goes out on a date with his brother. But as Heather knows, nothing involving ghosts is ever that simple, and Stevie is a determined troublemaker. With him interfering in Heather's love life, her Halloween may be more trick than treat.
Although Georgia author Maureen Hardegree concedes to having all the usual baggage of a middle child, she is NOT a ghost handler. She does, however, believe in connecting with her inner teenager and in feeding her active imagination--it likes Italian food and chocolate.
