This is an exciting podcast series where the supernatural mystery is just as important as the relationships between the lead characters. The kids in The Ghost of Jessica Majors are relatable because they face real-world problems like adjusting to a new town and stepfamily or dealing with bullying at school. The fact that they have to figure out friendships while also solving a ghostly mystery makes the story even more engaging. The Ghost of Jessica Majors benefits from talented young voice actors and immersive sound-design that bring the story to life. Kids and adults will find themselves drawn to the mystery of what's really happening in Curiosity, Maine.
