Someone is stalking Sherry's stepmother, and it's up to her and her ghost mother to put a stop to it! Check out Kidzworld's book review and summary of I So Don't Do Spooky by Barrie Summy!

Title: I So Don’t Do Spooky
Author: Barrie Summy
Ages: 10+
Rating: 4


You’d think Sherry’s life was normal. She has an übercute boyfriend named Josh, who still loves her even though his glittered-up school project partner is determined to win his heart. She keeps up with the latest fashion and make-up trends. And she has a video game-obsessed brother. But that’s where the normal in Sherry’s life ends.


The Assignment

Sherry can talk to ghosts. She can’t see them, but she can hear their voices. Since her mother died, Sherry’s been able to stay in touch. She even attends meetings with her mother at the Academy of Spirits (which is conveniently located in the local Dairy Queen!). At their latest meeting, Sherry and her mother are given an assignment: someone is stalking Sherry’s stepmother, and it’s up to them to protect her.


The Stalker

But protecting her stepmother isn’t Sherry’s first priority. You see, her stepmother, Paula (also known as the Ruler), is a stern teacher at her middle school. Who would want to stalk an uptight, beige-wearing sourpuss like Paula anyway? Nonetheless, Sherry gets down to business. Could it be kids from the rival school’s robotics team hoping to sabotage their chance of winning this year’s trophy? Or is it someone even more dangerous…someone from Paula’s past?


The Bottom Line

I So Don’t Do Spooky by Barrie Summy is a fast-paced, funny mystery that definitely captures the voice of a 7th grader. The characters are witty and fun to read about. If you like kids books about ghosts, but you aren’t into scary books, then you’ll really enjoy I So Don’t Do Spooky. And don’t miss Barrie Summy’s first book about Sherry, I So Don’t Do Mysteries.

I'm not saying humans should be tested on. There are alternatives where humans and animals are both not tested on such as "Organs on chips" which basically mimics the structure and function of human cells and tissues and they have been proved to replicate human medical responses more accurately than animal experiments do. There's also another alternative which is cell and tissue models that are used to access the safety of medicines as they replicate key traits of normal human skin. Besides not all animals react the same way as humans depending on different medicine types. There's various alternatives being used now that don't harm animals in anyway. I believe humans and animals are equal in fact we all come from the same kingdom so why should they be treated any different?

Woah, okay so, years ago when I was 12,13 maybe, I started this story and remembering it and finding it on here (with a different account,of course) is amazing, so if anyone wants too, I can maybe restart it? Or I can rewrite it, either way just say if you want me too!!!

Uniforms - other kids can't see your taste in fashion and you don't stand out by what you wear, AND they can't judge you if you're different. With uniforms, people are being judged on their personalities, not the brands that they wear.
