Review: The Ghost and The Goth by Stacey Kade

After a close encounter with the front end of a school bus, Alona Dare goes from Homecoming Queen to Queen of the Dead. Now she’s stuck here in spirit form with no sign of the big, bright light coming to take her away. To make matters worse, the only person who might be able to help her is Will Killian, a total loser/outcast type who hates the social elite. He alone can see and hear her, but he wants nothing to do with the former mean girl of Groundsboro High.

Can they get over their mutual distrust—and this weird attraction between them—to work together before Alona vanishes for good and Will is locked up for seeing things that don’t exist?

I found this book to be a very easy and fast paced read. Every page something new was happening that just kept my interest in the book.

Alona is the popular girl in school and was the leader of her group of friends Every guy wanted her and every girl wanted to be her. Will is very dark and keeps to himself. He is known as the "freak goth boy" who talks to himself and who always dresses so dark.

Alona and Will can't stand each other, but when Alona dies he is the only one who can see, hear and touch her. Alona finds out who were her true friends and what everyone really thought about her.

Will tries to ignore the voices and the dead because he is afraid of being locked in a mental hospital. Of course that all changes when Alona begins to haunt him and stalk him until he decides to help her find the light.

The Ghost and The Goth was a very funny book and from the moment Alona and Will begin to talk to each other you can feel the chemistry between the two. This book was a different take on ghost and that is what I really liked about it the most. Will has no idea why whenever Alona gets near him she can touch him and things around her. Or why he can touch her like if she was still in her body. The way they teased each other and fought with each other was so cute and entertaining. So if you're looking for an easy and entertaining read, then this is a must read.


  1. Seems like there can't be a happy ending to this book, though.

  2. Loca Loca, Actually it did end good. LOL I thought it would end bad as well, but it ended good and left an opening for a second book.

  3. This book sounds so cute! I am going to add it to my library list :) Thanks for the review
