The Ghost and the Goth

The Ghost and the Goth

by Stacy Kade

SYNOPSIS:

Alona Dare–Senior in high school, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen three years in a row, voted most likely to marry a movie star… and newly dead.
I’m the girl you hated in high school. Is it my fault I was born with it all-good looks, silky blond hair, a hot bod, and a keen sense of what everyone else should not be wearing? But my life isn’t perfect, especially since I died. Run over by a bus of band geeks—is there anything more humiliating? As it turns out, yes—watching your boyfriend and friends move on with life, only days after your funeral. And you wouldn’t believe what they’re saying about me now that they think I can’t hear them. To top it off, I’m starting to disappear, flickering in and out of existence. I don’t know where I go when I’m gone, but it’s not good. Where is that freaking white light already?
Will Killian–Senior in high school, outcast, dubbed “Will Kill” by the popular crowd for the unearthly aura around him, voted most likely to rob a bank…and a ghost-talker.
I can see, hear, and touch the dead. Unfortunately, they can also see, hear and touch me. Yeah, because surviving high school isn’t hard enough already. I’ve done my best to hide my “gift.” After all, my dad, who shared my ability, killed himself because of it when I was fifteen. But lately, pretending to be normal has gotten a lot harder. A new ghost—an anonymous, seething cloud of negative energy with the capacity to throw me around—is pursuing me with a vengeance. My mom, who knows nothing about what I can do, is worrying about the increase in odd incidents, my shrink is tossing around terms like “temporary confinement for psychiatric evaluation,” and my principal, who thinks I’m a disruption and a faker, is searching for every way possible to get rid of me. How many weeks until graduation?

I don’t know what to say about this book because I don’t really know if I liked it or not that much.

The cover was great and this is the main reason I decided to give this book a try, and the characters were nice and entertaining (they had a voice of their own that i really got to enjoy – the sarcasm is definitely a plus) but the story seemed to miss something and it didn’t kept my attention as much as I wanted.

I didn’t notice any attraction between the main characters and I didn’t get my resolution at the end of the book. There are still lots of question without answer (maybe in the next book we will find out more) and I didn’t really get the point of the story at all.. what was suppose to happen after all? I got to the end of the book and I felt like I’ve only been reading some nice dialogue lines and some character insights but nothing more.
A lot of mystery but no action, lots of questions but no answers, some romantic-wanna-be moments but no attraction..
I guess it was OK though and I almost liked it.

    There are a lot of people that loved this one, so I think you should give it a try if you think that you might like it.
    It was not MY kind of book, but I can’t say that I don’t recommend it to other people – there were some nice scenes, and the main character had a nice “voice”, but that just wasn’t enough for me to like it.
