Olivia (book_geek15) | 6 comments I think I read this sometime in 2015. If I'm remembering correctly, the first part of the book has the two main characters meeting another child-ghost in the forest who explains where they are. I think the girl decides to join the bad ghosts later in the book and the boy doesn't, but I'm foggy on the specifics.

Asia (semi–hiatus) (booknerd117) | 205 comments Everlost by Neal Shusterman (inaword's & Elizabeth's suggestions) matches your description, Olivia.

"Nick and Allie don't survive the car accident...

...but their souls don't exactly get where they're supposed to get either. Instead, they're caught halfway between life and death, in a sort of limbo known as Everlost: a shadow of the living world, filled with all the things and places that no longer exist. It's a magical, yet dangerous place where bands of lost children run wild and anyone who stands in the same place too long sinks to the center of the Earth.

When they find Mary, the self-proclaimed queen of lost kids, Nick feels like he he's found a home, but Allie isn't satisfied spending eternity between worlds. Against all warnings, Allie begins learning the "Criminal Art" of haunting, and ventures into dangerous territory, where a monster called the McGill threatens all the souls of Everlost.

In this imaginative novel, Neal Shusterman explores questions of life, death, and what just might lie in between."
