After a close encounter with the front end of a school bus, Alona Dare goes from Homecoming Queen to Queen of the Dead. Now she’s stuck here in spirit form with no sign of the big, bright light coming to take her away. To make matters worse, the only person who might be able to help her is Will Killian, a total loser/outcast type who hates the social elite. He alone can see and hear her, but he wants nothing to do with the former mean girl of Groundsboro High.
Can they get over their mutual distrust—and this weird attraction between them—to work together before Alona vanishes for good and Will is locked up for seeing things that don’t exist?
The Ghost and the Goth was an adorable and fun read. I couln't wait to read this one, and when I recieved an arc, I was thrilled.
Alona was a typical popular cheeleader: perfect, beautiful and self absorbed. As you start reading, though, you see a different side to the dead Homecoming Queen. You see that her home life wasn't perfect. you see that her bes friend is hooking up with her boyfriend, and has been long before she was dead. but most of all, you see her growing feeling for Will, the unpopular goth and the only one who can see e her. He starts helping her, and soon enough the feeling is mutal. Willl was very cute and weet from the beggining, and only got more likable as it went on.
The Ghost and the Goth was a really fun novel. It had a couple flaws, bt none that couldn't be ignored or made it any less enjoyable. Even though I read it a while back, it would be a good summer read.
