Meh.

I read a lot, so I very much wonder about the five star reviews of this book. Are they forced from a desperate publisher? I don't know.
All the five stars actually made me look back at the book and skim it, asking myself what I hated about this book. I really didn't like any of it. The ghost that were supposed to be scary, were not. The characters were lackluster. It was just super cliche and poorly executed.

What I do know is that this is not a good book.

There were some good elements, but it was mostly hokey. It was not suspenseful in the least. The ghosts talked A LOT to the point I was thinking, just tell them what you need them to do. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

The characters were as flat as the apparitions. Here's Zoey, she's lovable and likes to cook. Here's Margot! She's angry and a professor. Gag.

The well written areas of the book deal with music. I particularly enjoyed the club scenes and details therein, but those scenes were few and far between
