In "Dial 'M' For Morna," we've got a double mystery for The Dead Kid Detective Agency! First we try to find out who killed Morna. Second, October, Yumi, and Stacey are victims of a hate crime, and the question is... Who dunit? And oh my gods, there is a connection between both mysteries, believe it or not! It really surprised me.
I thought it was a very fun read, very appropriate for kids of MG and up. Our leading lady October is great... very funny with all her sarcastic remarks! She is also very loyal to her ghostly friends and so very caring for her sick dad. Speaking of which, there are two very strong subjects in the book that are important: bullying and depression. Just thought I'd point that out.
I also loved the supporting characters... Yumi, Stacey (we find out something very interesting about him!!), and of course, all the ghosties!
The story itself was mysterious (duh), suspenseful, adventurous, and so very funny! It had a lot of history stuff, which is not really my thing, but I gotta admit that it was very interesting!
And I know I mentioned this before, but I absolutely love how the narrator speaks directly to us the readers :)
I highly recommend this series to those who like mysteries, ghosts, and just a fun read!
