Goodreads Book Description: Forever is a long time to be stuck in high school.
Seventeen-year-old Paige is dead, the victim of a freak fall from the roof during Physics class. Now she’s a ghost, permanently bound to the grounds of her high school. It isn’t all bad, she can find out everyone’s secrets, which can be amusing—for a while. But then Paige hears something that isn’t amusing at all: the rumor spread by the most popular girl at school that her death wasn’t an accident—that she supposedly jumped on purpose. Paige is desperate to stop the gossip, but what can a ghost do? Then Paige discovers something amazing. She can possess living people when they think of her, and she can make them do almost anything. Maybe, just maybe, she can get inside the girl who’s responsible for the stories. . . and have a little fun turning the tables while she’s at it.
Katie Williams’ second novel is a suspenseful page-turner full of eerie wit and a touch of the otherworldly
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I received this book from
Librarything Early Reviewers giveaways. I have been so lucky lately-- I
have been reading some terrific books, this being one of them.
by Katie Williams is about Paige, a girl who has died in a freak
accident during Physics class. She lives as a ghost in the school after
her death with two other kids who have died at school. Once Paige
realizes a horrible rumor has been started about her that she has
committed suicide, she finds an unexpected way to possibly change the
course of this rumor trail.
This is just a very superficial plot
description as this book delves into much deeper issues (ethical and
psychological) and has some terrific plot twists. Paige is a very
sympathetic character who grows and learns as a ghost as to what is
truly important. We have some wonderful supporting characters, including
Evan, another ghost who lives at the school, Paige's best friend, and
Wes, a cute "burner." I'm not even going to explain that terminology--
read the book and figure it out! The prose is beautifully written, and
it ends the only way it can.
I loved this book, and Katie Williams has now made it on my "Authors To Watch" list.
