"Spookygirl" (I'm Back! - a Lexi review)


I'm back for the rest of the week. I still haven't found my baby (2 weeks and 1 day), but tons of people have seen him, so there's still hope. Prayers, good thoughts, anything really, is welcome. But I can't stop doing this and talking to my friends, and everything, but instead, hope for the best, prepare for the worst, but still go on in life.

So, let's get to the book, shall we? Spookygirl by Jill Baguchinsky. (That's such a mouthful!)

Summary: "Violet doesn't remember much about her late mother, but she is certain of one thing: she too can see ghosts and communicate with the dead. But when Violet discovers paranormal activity in the girls' locker room, she finds herself ill-equipped for handling the school's ghostly echoes. Through Violet's own investigation and with the help of some unlikely allies, Violet discovers there is a lot she doesn't know about her special skill--and more still that can stand in the way of its power. With sharp wit and determination, Violet sets out to uncover the truth behind her school's haunting, to finish the investigation that led to her mother's sudden death, and to learn why the only ghost she has ever wanted to see is the one that has eluded her forever."

So this novel can be cheesy in its events and names (if you read it, you'll get it). With the stereotypical goths, the story was kind of guess-able. You'll know what's going to happen before she does, which is seeming to become more the case in YA books. But the lines, thoughts, and general teenagers are just hilarious (and they're supposed to be). The take on ghosts is interesting, like why they're here and what they like. I REALLY like this novel, and it's a great take on ghosts, but based upon the other paranormal books I've been reading for fall, it's not the best...

In Conclusion: Not the best ghost book, but it's super entertaining, relatable, and funny. It's one of those "eh, read it or don't" books.
