Young Adult paranormal romance

The Ghost and the Goth (The Ghost and the Goth, #1)
The Ghost and the Goth

By: Stacey Kade

Genre:  YA Paranormal

Pages: 304

Published: 2011

Read: November

4 out of 5

I love the way Kade is able to write on paranormal topics, yet make it all so realistic. She stretches her stories just enough without going overboard. I enjoy how she adds little bits of humor (and makes fun of cheerleaders) in this story and even has the characters “talk” to the readers. I love the connection between Will, the teen who speaks to ghosts, and Alona, the ghost. I would have liked to have seen more of Joonie (maybe the next book?), but overall the characters were well developed. I felt the book ended with closure and could be a stand-alone novel. I wonder if she knew it was going to be a trilogy when beginning to write it.  I will be reading the rest soon, so stay tuned.  This book is great for teens into paranormal love stories.
