The Mediator Book Series
About The Mediator series
The Mediator was a series of 6 books by Meg Cabot. In 2016, she continued the series. There is now volume 6.5 and 7, along with a short story as well.
It revolves around the life of Susannah (Suze) who can talk to and see ghosts. She is a mediator whose purpose is to help the ghosts take care of their unfinished business so they may continue into the afterlife. The only problem; she falls in love with one of those ghosts!
(If you liked the show "Ghost Whisperer" starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, you will love these books as well!)
Suze moves from New York to California when her mom marries a man named Andy. Suze and her mom now live with Andy and his three kids, Jake, Brad, and David (Sleepy, Dopey, and Doc as Suze calls them.) When she goes to her new school, she finds out that Father Dom can see ghosts just like her, and the two of them have an angry, heartbroken ghost to take care of.
Suze needs to find Red and give him a message from a passed loved one. The only problem is, who is red??? Jesse, Susannah's hot ghost roommate, will be called in to help. Together, can they finish the job?
When the four ghosts of the RLS angels show up, Suze needs to find out why they have it in for the guy who likes her. Suze's best friend, Gina, from New York shows up for the week though, so it makes any ghost stuff hard to do.
When Dopey and Andy find a historic item in the backyard, Suze is curious as to what it is and who it may have belonged to. When the angry ghost of Jesse's fiance shows up, Suze is afraid she will lose Jesse and doesn't know how she'd live without him.
Suze finds another mediator like herself, Paul. He seems to like her. He doesn't however, like that Jesse is living in her room. Will he get rid of Jesse so he can have Suze to himself? Or will he leave him alone?
Book 6:- Twilight
When Paul and Suze find out they have yet another power besides just talking to ghosts, Suze is more than conflicted. Should she help her secret love, Jesse, return to life, or do anything to keep him from going back? And what will Jesse choose once he finds out?
Book 6.5:- Proposal: A Mediator Novella
This installment is only considered 6.5 because it wasn't a full book. It was an e-novella that Cabot created to give fans what they were asking for - a glimpse into Suze and Jesse's relationship as adults. She was still in high school when the series left off. This e-book became available in 2016, 12 years after the series originally ended.
Book 7:- Remembrance
Suze has graduated college and she's now starting at her first adult job. She's also newly engaged and ready to start wedding planning. The problem is, her job as a guidance counselor at her former school has lead her to a murderous discovery. Old and new ghosts begin to haunt her.
Netflix deal in the works...
Meg Cabot revealed in September 2020 that a movie series may be in the works at Netflix. The Mediator is being brought to screen by Debra Martin Chase (of Princess Diaries fame) and Sarah Spillane. The project is a bit up in the air right now due to Covid, but it's still expected sometime in the near future.
