This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Does she visit her family? And if I should die before I awake, I pray the popular attend my wake.
Charlotte is also a steadfast feminist: She’ll finally have the attention of the most popular guy in school, Damen. I understand full well how hard it is to write a novel and I respect Ms. This is one of those very sad cases in which the cover ends up being better than the book itself.
No even me, the clumsiest, stupidest person in the world do that.
Refresh and try again. In fact maybe I should ghostgifl with the fact that there are only six adults in this entire book, three of them teachers who are mentioned only in passing while Charlotte waxes idiotic about the jock she’s in “love” with, and another three mannequins who wander through a couple of pages with no purpose or effect. Just as Charlotte is about to complete the possession ritual, Scarlet, Ghoetgirl and Prue arrive to stop her, and explain that Maddy is a murderous soul from hell attempting to turn Charlotte astray so she can “graduate” her own way.
It just wasn’t my favorite read. Often times the villains would be criticized for not being “politically correct”, yet the characters deemed heroic would say equally sexist and hateful things.
If there can be something ghosgirl a stereotypical dead girl!
But her new dead classmates aren’t liking Charlotte’s plans too much and are making it incredibly hard for her to get anything done. I think you should write more comedic books, tbh, you wouldn’t be half bad.

Great format, stupid story. Preview — Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley.
So I thought the ending fit pretty perfectly. I had a very difficult time deciding on a rating for this book.

Everyone else was defined by one or two singular characteristics and most of them were stereotypes.
Poor Charlotte chokes on a red gummy bear just before she leaves her first period physics class and dies. The book started out with such promise, but very quickly becomes incredibly annoying.
The book just looked so pretty I wanted to give it a chance, even though I had to force myself to make it through the first chapter. I had fun with her, it was annoying to see her so deeply obsessed with Damen, and constantly thinking how much she wanted him, how obsessed she was with the dance and nothing else, not even able to accept her hugley. Nah, she spies on her crush, because that’s the only thing she lived for in the first place: It doesn’t, and there is little as frustrating as getting to the end of a book with a conclusion that makes absolutely no sense.
Also, it made me laugh. What follows is a zany plot involving stalking, possession don’t worry, it’s consensualand a love triangle that has to be read to be believed. Where do I start with Ghostgirl? See all 3 questions about Ghostgirl…. Because of a gummy bear.
