I just finished this about an hour ago, here's the review hope you like it!

Title: Ghostgirl

Author: Tonya Hurley

Summary:Now I lay me down to sleep,I pray the Lord my soul to keep.And if I should die before I awake,I pray the popular attend my wake.
Charlotte Usher feels practically invisible at school, and then one day she really is invisible. Even worse: she's dead. And all because she choked on a gummy bear.
But being dead doesn't stop Charlotte from wanting to be popular; it just makes her more creative about achieving her goal. If you thought high school was a matter of life or death, wait till you see just how true that is.In this satirical, yet heartfelt novel, Hurley explores the invisibility we all feel at some times and the lengths we'll go to be seen.

My Review: This book wasn't what I expected. It started off okay, then got really slow and I almost gave up on it but I still turned the pages. But it picked up and got rather exciting towards the end. The main character Charlotte got on my nerves a bit, she just wouldn't quit obsessing over the little things in life (well death really). I'm glad I read it in the long run though and can't wait to read Ghostgirl: Homecoming, which comes out on my birthday, July 1! (I have an ARC though so I may read it sooner than that). I would recomend this book to kids around 11-13 though not teens.

Well there it is. Please Please comment!!
I'm still giving away bookmarks so if you want one or maybe even two shoot me an email (with bookworm extraordinaire as the subject please so it doesn't get deleted as spam).
