YA isn’t my favorite genre. After being forced to read Twilight in a YA class, I was happy to never go back. (Seriously, why is Twilight so popular? It portrays a TERRIBLE example of romantic relationships. Edward is not romantic, he’s abusive.)
But this book came through our YA workroom as a new title, and I was so intrigued I had to read it:
The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
I was not disappointed! It was fun and funny. I like how the narrator switched from Alona (the ghost) and Will (the goth). Good writing = good marketing, I guess – this book will appeal to lots of different teens. (Though none of mine. Boo. But my husband read it.)
My 16-year-old son pinpointed it for what it was from looking at the cover. “Ugh, they’re going to make a TV show out of it.” I don’t know about that, but there’s a sequel coming out this June . . .
