The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade brings together Will, a troubled teen who is pestered by the dead and Alona, the high school homecoming queen and recently deceased after she was struck down by a school bus.

Told in alternating points of view, Alona and Will both get their chances to weigh in on the situation. Kade's creates convincing voices for each character which makes both more sympathetic than they otherwise would be if seen only through a third person point of view.

Although they don't initially like each other, they need each other. Will can't get a moment of peace because of the ghosts always swarming him. Alona, can't figure out why she's stuck haunting the school. She also wants to clear her name and convince everyone that she didn't commit suicide.

The relationship that grows between Will and Alona reminds me fondly of Holly and Vince in You Had Me at Halo by Amanda Ashby except that they don't share a body.
