So Cassie jumps at the chance to be apart of a group that gets to help the FBI catch these killers.

Why I read this: The cover really peaked my interest and it seemed a bit like ghostgirl and Give Up The Ghost – which I both enjoyed. It's also a debut novel! 🙂 Plot: The usual girl dies, is a ghost and has to figure out how to move onto Heaven. Throw in one goth boy who can actually see ghosts and you have a fun tale – especially since the girl who died was one of those mean, popular girls. Characters: Alona cracks me up as a character. She is almost a comical stereotype of the popular mean girl. […]
It is not often that a novel can leave me speechless… but that is exactly what Hex Hall did. Beautifully written, humorous, and so much more make up this outstanding debut novel. Hex Hall is the kind of novel that has surprises around every corner. Some surprises were amazing and some just took me, well… completely by surprise. This is one of those novels in which I never knew exactly what to expect. And I absolutely loved that. There is so many wonderful elements within Hex Hall that it is hard to pick a favorite. The premise was fun and […]
Fashion Kitty and the Unlikely Hero was cute and entertaining. I love Kiki’s positive interactions with her family and schoolmates. Her family is understanding about her superhero powers and support her through all of her activities. The story is pretty basic and a fun one at that – which will make these graphic novels easier for younger kids to read. The style of the illustrations remind me a little bit of Babymouse, only with full colors. Overall, something I would like to see in my own school library. Recommended for 2nd Grade and up.
