The Ghost and the Goth
by Stacey Kade
After a close encounter with a bus, Alona Dare goes from homecoming queen to Queen of the Dead. To make matters worse, the only person who might be able to help her is Will Killian, a total loser. Can they get over their mutual distrust--and quasi attraction--to work together?
• Ghost Whisperer
• YA - Kissing
• Young adult stories always fly for me. This one was no different and I enjoyed the speeding trip with only a pang or two of lust lost.
• Opposite sides of the tracks thrown into a strange partnership.
• Alona's drive was outstanding and reminded me a little of myself. I was never cheerleading captain, but I don't stop until I have what I want.
• The analysis of how to be popular was also surprising. I expected the cheerleader to get ripped up for being shallow. Instead real life skills were showcased with potential for application in the cutthroat business world where networking is key.
• Will's home life was disconcerting. I am very glad the frowny face worked because I would have been punching the couch if the psychiatrist stayed and kept his grip on mom's ear.
• Being a kid at that almost adult age is scary stuff. You are beginning to make your own decisions but don't have all the necessary life skills to be on your own. BUT parents can still take away that growing independence and make major life decisions for you.. and you've got NO SAY. *shudder* I am very glad I am an adult now. Now all I am scared of is the police. *sigh*
• The team work was awesome and the understanding across the tracks was a classic theme. I missed the stronger romantic elements you will get with adult books but then, I am reading some really erotic stuff right now.
I received this book through the "My Favorite Things" Book Swap. Thanks again, Melissa!
