Charlotte has worked for this all summer. The first day of school. This year is going to be different, this year she is going to be noticed, this year she is going to get the most popular boy in school. She gets really close too, well she had the whole lab partner thing going for her, until she choked to death on that soft red gummy bear.

She doesn’t show up at the pearly gates instead she’s still stuck in high school only this time it’s high school for the dead. Now her crush really doesn’t know she’s alive, but Charlotte doesn’t let that damper her determination. She just realizes she’ll need to be a little more creative to reach her goal.

Ghostgirl definitely wasn’t what I expected, but it was still really fun to read. Poor Charlotte, the girl can’t seem to catch a break! The plot was unpredictable although I thought the ending could have been a little stronger, no one lets go of a grudge of that proportions just like that. I would try to explain more, but I don’t want to give anything away. The characters were fun. You have your stereotypical popular rich bitch girl, the stupid jock, the goth girl and the dead girl. If there can be something considered a stereotypical dead girl! Hurley’s writing style is easy to fall into and I finished the book in no time! The cover for the books is exceptional! It is a die-cut cover and the color scheme is pink and black. very cool. I loved the quotes and illustrations introducing every chapter and the page borders were a nice touch as well. I know that has nothing to do with the story itself, but I like creative additions like that!
