Give Up The Ghost
I have always wondered whether or not ghosts are real, and if so, what they are up to. Can you imagine just floating around, being ignored and wisping right through everything you try to touch? Ghosts must have a way to keep themselves occupied. Megan Crewe’s Give Up The Ghost gave me many great ideas on what ghosts do all day.
In this story, the ghosts haunting Cass McKenna’s school aren’t exactly like the ghosts you hear about in scary stories or horror movies. They have secrets about everyone, and Cass loves secrets, especially the ones that prove that people aren’t as nice as you think. Since the ghosts were invisible, it was easy to eavesdrop on every conversation in the hall, computer lab, classrooms, and even outside on the track and football field. The students were completely oblivious to the fact that Cass talked to ghosts, and that ghosts existed. Except for one person, whose suspicions brought him to the conclusion that Cass could communicate with the dead. That person was Tim, the vice-president of the student council who was in desperate need of Cass’s help.
I recommend this story to anyone who is interested in ghosts and paranormal activity. Give Up The Ghost was a great and interesting read, but the story didn’t have enough plot twists and drama to be considered my favorite. No one was really mean, and nothing was really sad. Nevertheless, the story was interesting and kept me hooked the entire time I read. If you’re looking for teen fiction mixed with fantasy, Give Up The Ghost is the book for you.
