Waiting on Wednesday: I So Don't Do Spooky


This week I'm waiting on...

I SO Don't Do Spooky by Barrie Summy (December 8th, 2009)

Did you know that the main campus of the Academy of Spirits is at a Dairy Queen in Pheonix? Me either. Until now. Some weird stuff has been happening to my stepmother, Paula, and the Academy has asked me, Sherry Holmes Baldwin, to get to the bottom of it. They think someone's trying to hurt her.
I really don't want to get involved--my life is way too busy. Josh and I are celebrating two blissful months of togetherness. And my best friend, Junie, is finally showing a teeny bit of interest in clothes and makeup after years of braniac behavior. But being that my mom is a ghost and all, my brother, me, my brother, and my dad rely on Paula a lot. So it's not like I can just ignore what's going on. Especially since my mom is competing at the Ghostlympics. If she comes in first place, she earns five minutes of Real Time.
And that means I've got to get involved in a creepy, freaky mystery.
But...I SO don't do spooky.
Ever since I read the first book in this series, I SO Don't Do Mysteries (my review here), and loved it, I have been eagerly looking forward to the second book. These books are honest, clever, crazy, and utterly hilarious, and the covers have a great new look! In fact, Barrie just posted the newest cover on her blog here. (If you're too lazy to go check it out, it's going to be in Part 3 of my Cover Love "New Covers" post this upcoming Tuesday)! Anyway, can't wait to find out what crazy situations Sherry gets herself into next!

Sounds sooo cute! The title is what I think of Halloween. I SO don't do spooky.
