Title: Give Up the Ghost
Author: Megan Crewe
Give Up the Ghost
"Grade 8–10—A supernatural twist on the "Mean Girls" plot provides page-turning action. Cass McKenna sees ghosts. Her first spotting was her sister Paige, who failed to pass on to the afterlife following a drowning accident. Unfortunately for Cass, Paige and the ghosts that inhabit her school are her only friends. A junior-high bullying incident left her jaded and angry, and as revenge, she uses her supernatural informants to spill her classmates' juiciest secrets. When the student council VP discovers her covert ability, Cass unwillingly helps him contact his dead mother, leading to changes in her social status. Cass isn't the most lovable of protagonists, but her resentment is well developed and convincingly sustained throughout. Mysterious plot elements and the budding relationship between Cass and the VP will quickly engage reluctant readers.—Lindsay Cesari, Baldwinsville School District, NY END "

My Thoughts:

I really like this novel, the mean crowd really kept me hooked in, and I wanted Cass to like dump as much dirt on them as she could. The only thing lacked a little for me was romance. I know, I know, not every YA novel needs romance, but I love it and look for it in every book. Overall, a good ghost read. :D
