Ghosts of Coronado Bay was written by JG Faherty and published by JournalStone in May, 2011. You may purchase this book at  and you may learn more about the author at  

Maya Blair is a teenager with typical teenager problems. She has a jealous boyfriend who can’t get the idea of “leave me alone” into his head. She has a best friend who is a little loose morally, but fiercely loyal to her and a true friend. She has a dance coming up soon that she wants to go to, but the question is who with? She is a typical teenager with typical teenager issues, except for one. Maya can see, feel, and communicate with ghosts. However, the only one she has ever encountered to date is her Grandmother. No one knows that she has this ability, except for her Grandmother, who visits her regularly and shared her ability when she was alive.

Then, a new display at the local museum is causing quite a stir and the whole town is talking about the opening of the exhibit. Maya is less than enthused about being forced to go to it during a class field trip, but while she is there, she meets an interesting boy who stirs the butterflies in her stomach. A new kid in town, Blake has captured her interest. Soon after she meets Gavin, who equally attracts her.

The odd happenings at the museum and the appearance of two new boys in town have Maya on edge. The two boys couldn’t be more different from each other, but they both have her fumbling over her words and willing to go farther than she would normally allow.

Enjoy this YA story as you go through natural and supernatural struggles with this teenage girl. This book is full of adventure and supernatural happenings and is very entertaining. It is a fast read, and excellent for a teen who is into the paranormal, and even teens who aren’t. This story is the start of many for Maya Blair and it will leave you wanting to see what will happen next. The action and adventure will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, flipping pages faster and faster. This is a great read, and I definitely recommend it.
