Description of this Book

When Francis meets a ghost on the school playing field, the ghost is almost as surprised as he is. Jessica has been dead for over a year, but no one has been able to see or hear her before. No one. Apart from the fact that she's dead, Jessica seems a perfectly ordinary girl, but the mystery remains - Why is Francis the only one who can see her? And why can't she remember how she died?
