Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heaven couldn't be a phone bank, could it?

Charlotte Usher discovers that the afterlife isn't quite what she pictured when she's forced to intern at a hotline for troubled teens. Before she can officially cross over, she'll have to be a source of guidance for one such teen. The problem is she doesn't have much advice to offer since dying hasn't exactly boosted her confidence level.

But when Hawthorne High's leading, love-to-hate cheerleader Petula and her gothic little sis' Scarlet find themselves suddenly resting-in-peace in comas, Charlotte's opportunity to save them will prove to be the risk of a lifetime-for all of them.

Praise for ghostgirl:

* Polished dark-and-deadpan humor, it's a natural fit with Gen Y, too." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

* "[Tonya] beats out witty teen-speak like a punk-band drummer, keeping the narrative fast-paced and fun yet thought-provokingly heartwarming. Goofy, ghastly, intelligent, electrifying." --Kirkus (starred review)

*"Tim Burton and Edgar Allan Poe devotees will die for this fantastic, phantasmal read." --School Library Journal (starred review)

* "Readers with a taste for black humor and satire will feast on Hurley's crisp, wise dialogue. Anticipate a well deserved cult following." --VOYA (starred review)

Synopsis:

In this sequel to the "New York Times"-bestselling "ghostgirl," Charlotte Usher discovers that the afterlife isn't quite what she pictured when she's forced to intern at a hotline for troubled teens. Before she can "officially" cross over, she'll have to be a source of guidance for one such teen.

Synopsis:

Before she can rest in peace, Charlotte Usher must return to the tragic site of her death: high school. Her assignment is to help a designated teen solve a personal problem in time for the all-important prom.

I loved the book ghostgirl so much. It was a smart, witty and, at the same time, a profound book. I found it extremely entertaining, i could not put it down, and entirely engaging. I related to the characters and I actually learned a lot about myself. ANyway, I got the ARC of ghostgirl: Homecoming and was expecting to like it, but I wasn't expecting to LOVE it. Homecoming goes much deeper, the wit and humor are still there, but the overall story grows with the characters. There are those pee-in-your-pants lines LOL, but the author really takes it to a whole other level! I can't wait to get the finished copy!!! This is my new favorite author!
