Sherry and her friends are having an awesome sleepover, having fun with eye shadow, glitter, and hair products. But when the girls wake up the next morning with serious skin issues, Sherry is freaked. Someone tampered with her makeup. But who?
Laughs, ghosts, and a lip-gloss-loving teen sleuth! Sherry (short for Sherlock) Holmes Baldwin is spending spring break in California with her best friend, Junie. She can't wait to hang out in the sun, hit the mall, and spend time with cutie-pie Josh. Then . . . a freaky change of plans. Sherry's mom, a cop killed in the line of duty, contacts her. Not only is she a ghost, she's a ghost in danger of flunking out of the Academy of Spirits, and she needs Sherry's help. Unless she solves an important mystery in San Diego, she'll be banished to an afterlife for ghost failures! If Sherry wants to be a normal seventh grader (as in, one who doesn't communicate with ghosts), she can't tell anybody about her mom--or what she has to do. Not her brother, not Junie, and especially not Josh. It's up to Sherry alone to save the day. Except . . . shesodoesn't do mysteries.
Someone's out to get Sherry's stepmom. . . . Can she save her before it's too late? Did you know that the main campus of the Academy of Spirits is at a Dairy Queen in Phoenix? Me either. Until now. Some weird stuff has been happening to my stepmother, Paula, and the Academy has asked me, Sherry Holmes Baldwin, to get to the bottom of it. They think someone's trying to hurt her. I really don't want to get involved--my life is way too busy. Josh and I are celebrating two blissful months of togetherness. And my best friend, Junie, is finally showing a teeny bit of interest in clothes and makeup after years of brainiac behavior. But being that my mom is a ghost and all, me, my brother, and my dad rely on Paula a lot. So it's not like I can just ignore what's going on. Especially since my mom is competing at the Ghostlympics. If she comes in first place, she earns five minutes of Real Time. And that means I've got to get involved in a creepy, freaky mystery. But . . . Isodon't do spooky. From the Hardcover edition.
