Can t a girl choose her own boyfriend without his kid brother haunting her? 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.
