When thirteen-year-old Ally is confronted with what may be a ghost haunting her bedroom in Ronnie Stich’s new novel Creepy Friends, she does what anyone would do: she freaks out. After all, that just isn’t something that a normal girl who constantly struggles to fit in at school should have to put up with, is it? However, it seems she’s not the only one with this problem and Ally becomes unlikely allies with Kathy, the 'strange' girl at school, in order to discover just what is causing the loud bumps and bangs in the night. Together, they enlist Kathy's Aunt Marilyn and Mr. Walsh, a teacher from school, both of whom have a vested interest in the disturbances, at the same time trying to ignore the taunts of the rest of the school that they're both 'creepy.' Oh, and of course they need to prevent her parents from finding out what they're up to, all while struggling to solve the mystery.

Creepy Friends is an entertaining novella directed towards young adults, though children may also find it enjoyable. Catchy dialog, a fun plot, and memorable characters who suffer the typical angst of that age group carry the story along. The suspense ebbs and flows as the young women find plenty of obstacles in their path to solving the mystery. Along the way, Ally learns several of life’s important lessons to help her deal with school, her peers, her family, and even her view of herself. Overall, a fun read.

Creepy Friends is written for young adults, but I think parents and grandparents will enjoy this sweet story, too. I just loved it. The story is clever and well written, with witty dialog, and moves along at a good pace. Alicia is a normal 13 year old with all the insecurities of that age. Kathy is the smart rich girl that the other kids avoid, just because. The two girls slowly form a bond in order to solve the mystery of the “ghost” in Alicia’s bedroom. There are some really funny moments involving Alicia’s precious little brother, the middle school teachers, the classmates and the parents. And, of course, the ghost. There is a really satisfying ending that will embrace you like a hug. I hope these creepy friends get together again next year for another fun adventure.
