I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for my advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

I don't think I can begin to describe how wonderful this book is. The illustrations are beautiful and special, the message and story are important and relatable, and the writing is quirky and fun. This is the first book in a series and I predict that this series will be a big hit. Ghoulia wants to feel normal and make friends - who doesn't feel that way at times? She might look different on the outside but she is the same as the other children on the inside. The best part is the others accept her for who she truly is and isn't that something we should all strive for?! In the horror genre, zombies are generally my least favorite but after reading this even I want to be a Ghoulia. So, when I found the how-to-be-Ghoulia instructions for Halloween at the end of the book, I made sounds of pure glee. I can already see myself reading this book with my nieces and I sure hope they want to play dress-up after!
