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.

You should make a collage of all your pics; good/Bad doesn't matter...! atleast, she'll remember all the memories of you...! make a sequence, like from your kindergarden to the present. You may involve many of your friends.. This'll make all of it fun! To top it all, Add Your petnames you gave to each other during the wonderful time you were together..I mean, write those on the top of your collage using a glitter!  If you wish to keep it simple, Buy a photo frame instead... this'l lessen your work load and u can add pics..Or refer to some other D-I-Y ideas.. like making a Bracelet or a card.. gifting something like a mug or pendant or a watch can be equally nice but they lack a special touch.. Anyway's upto you to decide.. Whatever you do, i know it's gonna be so much Fun! After all, Who knows' her better Than you! :) :D xD
