Team Owl Review: Ghost and the Goth

Title: Ghost and the Goth
Author: Stacy Kade

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?

Another interview form Team Owl Review :)

Why did you decide to pick up this book and read it?
Ms. F showed me the book.

Did you like the book? Please explain why you liked it or not.
I thought the book was really good. It made me not want to stop reading. In the book it reveals some things at the end (but I can’t tell.) When I finished reading it I wish there is another one because it is an amazing book.

Tell me what you thought of the main character(s). Did you like him/her/them? Did you like how they acted/reacted to events in the story?
I think Alona is my favorite character, because a lot can happen to a girl in a little bit of time.

What part did you like the best and why?
My favorite part would be when Alona was trying to figure out what is Junie up to.

Would you recommend this book to a friend?
Yes, because my friends are into the same kind of books I am into. So I think this would be a good book for one of my friends.

Tell me anything else about the book and your opinion of it that you want to share!
In the end you find out something that happens to Alona in the beginning of the book.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!!!
