A tween age girl that can see and talk to ghosts – yes, it always does make for an interesting read. This is the second book in the Girl Meets Ghost series, and we pick right back off with Kendall Williams in exactly the same place we left off in the first book. Kendall has a major crush on Brandon Dunham, whose mom is a ghost and doesn’t want Kendall around. Not to mention Kendall bumps into a completely new ghost, Lyra, while wandering around a new salon that just opened up. Between dealing wi ...more

When Kendall and her friend happen into a new full service spa, they get more than manicures-- Kendall meets Lyra, the daughter of the owner. The problem? Lyra died of a heart condition but can't move on until Kendall helps her figure out what is keeping her on earth. Kendall has other problems-- her father gives a promise ring to his girlfriend, Cindy; she thinks Lyra's brother Micah is kind of cute and boyfriend Brandon is a little jealous of him; and worst of all, Brandon's mother keeps haunt ...more

We get to know Kendall even better in this second book in the series!
Problems abound with her friends from Kendall's helping the newest ghost (these ghosts all seem incredibly selfish). Brandon's mom (ghost) is still around and causing trouble in the real world for Kendall.

Poor Kendall. It is hard enough to be a tween, but she sees ghosts, including the ghost of her maybe-boyfriend's mother. Life doesn't get much harder than that, but at least she has plenty of money for manicures.

Although in this book, a lot of problems spring with Brandon and Kendal and her friends, it’s intense to read at those times but still a very good teen fiction book.

12-year-old Kendall Williams can see dead people. In fact, they seek her out. She has the ability to help them pass on, but she can't tell anyone about it. They'll think she's crazy. When Kendall and her best friend Ellie try out a new salon for a manicure, Kendall meets Lyra, who is dead, but apparently has some unfinished business. Lyra’s brother Micah is a manicurist at the salon, and is very cute, but Kendall has a boyfriend, Brandon. Brandon’s mother has also passed away and won’t leave Ken ...more

In this second installment of Girl Meets Ghost, Kendall is still dealing with Mrs. Dunham--her boyfriend's dead mother-- and she doesn't know why Mrs. Dunham wants her to stay away from Brandon. On top of that, Kendall's father has become involved with Cindy and Kendall is not so happy about it. Being a middle schooler who sees ghosts is causing Kendall a great deal of trouble. I am happy that I have stumbled upon this series...

I enjoyed this book very much! I was surprised by how strongly attached I became to Kendall and her problems with her best friend, Ellie, and her boyfriend, Brandon. I was very disappointed in the cliffhanger ending because the new book just came out yesterday! This is a great trilogy for fans of Boys Are Dogs and Girls Acting Catty series.
