The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade

Alona Dare has it all — beauty, fashion sense, popularity, the ability to get whatever she wants. High school life is good. Until she dies.

Will doesn’t have anything — no father, very few friends, a mom who thinks he’s a bit crazy, a shrink who doesn’t help, and a school principal out to get him. Plus, he sees dead people. And are they annoying. Yabber, yabber all the time — help me this, show me that, fix this, pleeease. It’s enough to drive someone crazy. Hence the mom and the shrink…

But Will didn’t realize how good he had it before Alona showed up among the dead. And Alona didn’t realize how bad she had it before she died. With a lot of arguing, a bit of flirting (that’s right, dead people can flirt), a bit of fun and a few scares here and there, Alona and Will try to figure out how they can help each other deal with life and with death.

Bottom line: A light-hearted enjoyable read. Grab it for a weekend, then read the next one: Queen of the Dead.
