Gilda Joyce by Jennifer Allison
"A wonderful read for a teen (13-15) girl looking for a female role, supernatural story lines, and very little romance. Not to mention it's a great way to get someone interested in journalism/blogging. "

“When I first entered the school, I was all set to tie my hair in a ponytail, get a fake tan, and write my homework in pink gel ink. I was prepared to hear girls bragging nonchalantly about the BMWs and diamond earrings they recieved for their birthday. I almost looked forward to hearing the flashlight-wielding nuns tell me to "leave room for the holy ghost" when I danced lewedly with messy-haired prep-school boys”
Jennifer Allison, Gilda Joyce: The Ladies of the Lake

“Mom has no idea that I want to go to Our Lady of Sorrows just to investigate a haunting.
I have a gut feeling I'm going to be an outsider at this school, but that's the price I pay for being a psychic investigator. Like my Master Psychic's Handbook says, "Being a psychic isn't a normal career, like being a doctor or a lawyer. At some point, there may be a price to pay for such an unusual, misunderstood lifestyle.”
Jennifer Allison, Gilda Joyce: The Ladies of the Lake

“Besides, you know how I love the theater, and let's face it-a wedding is like a big show followed by a cast party.”
Jennifer Allison, Gilda Joyce: The Bones of the Holy
