* CompleteMonster: Paul can border this for some readers. Here's a list of the things he does in the space of three books: allows his little brother to believe that he's a freak and become more and more introverted by not explaining the reason that he sees dead people; manipulates a girl into a courtesy date just so that he can [[spoiler:exorcise a perfectly harmless ghost without her interference]], and gets his little brother to do it under the impression that he's doing something nice for the girl who helped him to overcome his fear and act like a normal kid for once in his life; steals money from a dead woman and refuses to return it to her grandson as she requested (even exorcising her so that she can't stop him; bearing in mind that his family is rich as hell and he doesn't even need the cash- hell, it's ''lunch money'' to him); blackmails aforementioned girl into coming over to his house every week by threatening to [[spoiler:exorcise aforementioned ghost yet again so that he can have her to himself]]; forcefully kisses her and almost stops her from leaving; steals her hairclip for the express use of provoking [[spoiler:the guy she loves by insinuating that he slept with her]]; goads a recently deceased and impressionable ghost into almost drowning his brother (who survived the accident that killed him) out of jealousy; plans to go back in time in order to prevent [[spoiler:aforementioned girl and ghost, who are deeply in love, from ever meeting so that he can have her to himself]] and backing her into a moral corner so that she can't fight him on it, and thereby plans to make her forget that [[spoiler:said ghost]] ever existed and have her to himself.

* Are Suze's parents really as oblivious as they seem? And why don't they seem to care that she spends more time than usual with the principal?

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Paul Slater is a pretty complex character. Opinion varies between fans: was he truly a callous, uncaring JerkAss rich teen who [[spoiler:eventually learned to accept that things do not always go exactly how he wants them, that he is not better than anyone else because of his gifts, and becomes a better person because of it]]? Or was he really just a [[JerkassWoobie, neglected by his parents, isolated and in need of a true and honest friend who just likes him for being him the whole time]]?

Are Suze's parents really as oblivious as they seem? And why don't they seem to care that she spends more time than usual with the principal?
* In real life Father Dom likely would have been MistakenForPedophile a long time ago. I'm surpised her parents have never questioned the fact that the principal calls her at home and meets with her during school hours. When he comes over to their house, she throws herself at him and starts sobbing into his shirt. And her parents never say boo.
