I was steeling myself for another tale of a girl-who’s-a-freak-who-wants-to-just-avoid-everyone-and-get-out-of-high-school-already-but-finally-scores-the-most-popular-boy-at-school-who-is-the-only-one-who-gets-her kind of book, but on my way to the GWAFWWTJAEAGOOHSABFSTMPBASWITOOWGH book club meeting, it was suddenly canceled. We’ve all read those books, and frankly, I am a bit tired of the theme. Ms. Cross has been able to take an outsider and bring her back into the fold. Best of all, OH GOSH THIS NEXT PART IS SPOILER CITY, BUT THE ROMANCE-ISH PARTS ARE REALLY SECONDARY, SO SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH IF YOU MUST! Best of all, the love triangle isn’t; the one she should like she does; and the boy who saves is a friend. So refreshing!
The creepy parts are very creepy; there are mysterious side-stories; an awesome library is mentioned; and there’s a sequel, so cool that we get to learn more about the family, the friends and, I assume, other ghosts.
