The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson When I first heard of this book, I didn't think I would like it. I am happy to say that after seeing some reviews on the book I decided to read it, and I absolutely loved it! I found the main character Rory Deveaux to be an interesting character and I really loved her sense of humor. Right of the bat she attracts the attention of a serial killing ghost who may or may not be Jack the Ripper. This storyline made the whole ghost seeing element of the story fresh. That and the fact that in the beginning, she doesn't realize she is seeing ghosts. The book ended with a twist and a cliffhanger that I did not see coming. I left the story with questions and impatiently wondering when the next book will come out so I can find out what happens next!
