The Name of the Star: Shades of London Book 1by Maureen Johnson

When Rory Deveaux leaves Louisiana to go to boarding school in London, little does she know that she will become involved in a series of present-day Jack the Ripper copycat murders. What's really scary is that she soon realizes she is the only one who can actually see the ghostly killer. As Rory helps the London "ghost police" solve these crimes, she begins to understand the special powers she possesses.
