Book Review: The Ghost and the Goth by Stacy Kade

Synopsis from Goodreads

Alona Dare–Senior in high school, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen three years in a row, voted most likely to marry a movie star… and newly dead.

I’m the girl you hated in high school. Is it my fault I was born with it all-good looks, silky blond hair, a hot bod, and a keen sense of what everyone else should not be wearing? But my life isn’t perfect, especially since I died. Run over by a bus of band geeks—is there anything more humiliating? As it turns out, yes—watching your boyfriend and friends move on with life, only days after your funeral. And you wouldn’t believe what they’re saying about me now that they think I can’t hear them. To top it off, I’m starting to disappear, flickering in and out of existence. I don’t know where I go when I’m gone, but it’s not good. Where is that freaking white light already?

Will Killian–Senior in high school, outcast, dubbed “Will Kill” by the popular crowd for the unearthly aura around him, voted most likely to rob a bank…and a ghost-talker.

I can see, hear, and touch the dead. Unfortunately, they can also see, hear and touch me. Yeah, because surviving high school isn’t hard enough already. I’ve done my best to hide my “gift.” After all, my dad, who shared my ability, killed himself because of it when I was fifteen. But lately, pretending to be normal has gotten a lot harder. A new ghost—an anonymous, seething cloud of negative energy with the capacity to throw me around—is pursuing me with a vengeance. My mom, who knows nothing about what I can do, is worrying about the increase in odd incidents, my shrink is tossing around terms like “temporary confinement for psychiatric evaluation,” and my principal, who thinks I’m a disruption and a faker, is searching for every way possible to get rid of me. How many weeks until graduation?

Book Title: The Ghost and the Goth (The Ghost and the Goth #1)
Author: Stacey Kade
My Rating:


I didn't like this book, as much as I want to.

Ghost and the goth is filled with cliche.
the whole story is so darn predictable.
It kinda annoys me that i would have to read through a mind of a cheerleader who has a car accident, and it turns out the huge freak at school is the only one that can hear her. Reading Alona Dare's thoughts is like your very typical streotype Queen Bee at school, course she has girly thoughts kinda thinks that she can get anything that she wants and yes, she is very self centered.

I have not much to say to Will, He is a misunderstood kid who can see spirirts, meh. not much to make out of his character.

I have been tolerating this book, cause I was thinking that maybe It'll get better as I read on, turns out it didn't I've been contemplating myself if I should just give this book 1 star, but it seems like that would be really harsh, I mean I have few grins here and there, while reading it. but nevertheless i didn't enjoy the whole story.
