New York Times bestseller Maureen Johnson takes on Jack the Ripper in this captivating paranormal thriller!

The day that Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London to start a new life at boarding school is also the day a series of brutal murders breaks out over the city, killings mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper spree of more than a century ago. Soon "Rippermania" takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him--the only one who can see him. And now Rory has become his next target. In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! I was unable to put this book down. Every page was a cliff hanger, and I kept telling my self that she was going to die the whole way through this book. I have read this book four times so far, and the same with the second book, Madness Underneath. I am anxiously waiting for September 16th when the third book comes out. Everyone needs to reed this book.

The Name of the Star is a cross between Ghost Hunters and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, only in this suspenseful creepy thriller, the young adults are hunting evil ghosts instead of vampires. They have no cool weapons, high tech equipment or martial arts training. In fact, they barely have any training at all. When they are assigned to protect American teen Rory, the only witness who can identify a ghost replicating the murders of Jack the Ripper, they are overwhelmed by the responsibility. Rory, from a long line of eccentric Louisiana natives, just wants to fit in and make friends at her new boarding school, but she is experiencing major culture shock. Being the only student who can see the numerous ghosts wandering around the neighborhoods surrounding campus doesn't help matters. The non-evil ghosts were some of the more interesting characters. Hopefully, in the future books in this series, the ghosts will have bigger parts. Many of the events in The Name of the Star are predictable and unoriginal, but the action comes quick and builds up to a nail-biting crisis and climax. There is just enough teen angst, romance and humor mixed in to hold the attention of readers who normally don't like stories of the supernatural. This series will be wildly popular and probably a TV series on one of the stations that targets a YA audience.
