Eyecatcher: The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
The Ghost and the Goth
by Stacey Kade
Release Date: June 29, 2010
from the author's site:
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?
why it caught my eye:
The Ghost and the Goth is a book I heard about forever ago while talking with Stacey Kade on Twitter (we'd suddenly realized we'd met each other before). I'd completely forgotten about it until I saw it on the new release carts at work this weekend. Then I got excited because I remembered wanting to read it. With so many paranormal titles out these days it can be hard to decide which one to read. Precious few are ghost stories however, which makes The Ghost and the Goth all the more intriguing. Once again I find myself waiting for payday so I can pick up a fun new read.
