Its a good book... It doesnt have a complicated plot but the characters personality makes it up.The book is narrated by two vey different characters that give a good balance and is not boring to read.

I loved how this story was still fun and light even with all the serious issues the characters had to deal with throughout the book. Alona was delightfully snarky (and yes, Queen Bee to a T) but her underlying emotions were real and true akin to her situation. And Will was also a great character hesistant to trust Alona but still thought she was worth it [and he sounds pretty hot too ;)]. Loved the supernatural aspect to it, Will being a medium and all. I can't wait for book 2!

I really really really liked this book. It was new, different, interesting, and captivating. At first I wasn't sure how the story would progress but it was wonderful. I highly recommend this book. Great! Can't wait for the second one.

I have forced myself to slow down when reading this book, and I am reading it to another person at the same time. I am thoroughly enjoying the simple quick read, while I am finding interesting depths. I have been a LONGGG time out of highschool but the theme seems to be international and spans across time. An excellent read.

Told from two perspectives, Stacey Kade develops both Alona's and Will's characters extremely well. A few fantastic quotes IMO: It wasn't "the" bus, obviously. The one that killed me was probably still being repaired or maybe decommissioned or whatever they do with vehicles that now have bad juju. -- Alona, page 5 Alona Dare, queen of the insult-compliment. "Wow. Thanks. Anyone ever tell you you're good with people?" She frowned. "No." "Good." -- Will, page 90 Themes of family and, unexpectedly, lesbianism are explored in a refreshingly new fashion, although since both Alona and Will have such discombobulated families it's difficult at first to distinguish their families' problems. The paranormal aspect is dealt in a much more light tone, one that feels wholly original in the oversaturated YA market. Adult characters like Principal Brewster and Dr. Miller, Will's psychiatrist, are a mite exaggerated in their actions; Brewster's violent, spastic tendencies and Miller's plan to sell a novel based on Will's ghost-seeing claims seem over-the-top. On the other hand, Alona's mother's case is presented convincingly, especially in the roundabout way it's linked to Alona's death. Concepts of paranormal activity are explored with surprising depth. The book's atmosphere darkens gradually as the tension rises, making for a satisfyingly touching climax, but leaves readers with an ending as light and fun as the start. The Ghost and the Goth is a charming and sweet story whose sequel I can't wait to read.

stacy likes the book very much it is halarious and it is a lot of fun to read and stacy likes the middle of the book it is a really great book to read from stacy

@kiki_kylan - there IS a sequel - Queen of the Dead comes out in May :) I really loved this book - A really fun, short-ish read that takes the whole 'they're from different cliques but something makes them work together' trope and puts the paranormal spin on it in a way that feels fresh and not overdone. Really sort of fell in love with the characters and am looking forward to the next one.
