Give Up The Ghost

Author: Megan Crewe

Summary: Cass McKenna much prefers ghosts to "breathers." Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable. They know the dirt on everybody...and Cass loves dirt. She's on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of the poseurs in her school.

But when the vice president of the student council discovers her secret, Cass's whole scheme hangs in the balance. Tim wants her help contacting his recently deceased mother, but Cass is less than enthusiastic.

Kicking and screaming, Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim's life. And she's more surprised than anyone when she realizes that maybe some living people aren't so bad if she'd only give them a chance....

Review: It was an excellent read with believable characters and individual voices. The ghosts were believable and Cass was a wonderful to listen to. It is written from her point of view.

Although the summary kind of makes Cass sound like a "mean girl", she really isn't. She is a nice person who decided to take revenge on the social elite for their snobbiness. Of course, even the other outcasts don't trust her, so she's friendless, but ghosts are enough company for her. She's pretty much a victim of the circumstances.

My favorite character is either Cass or her deceased sister, Paige. I really liked how Cass's character is developed through her relationship with her sister and the events surrounding Cass' life.

It was a good book. It wasn't overly deep or anything, but I enjoyed it. The ending was an insy bit dissappointing. Not because it wasn't wonderfully written, but because I felt that it could have gone on for another chapter or an epilogue. Oh well. :) I still reccomend it.

Oh, and I LOVE the cover! :D
