KIRKUS REVIEW

“God, buses are so ugly when you see them that close up,” observes snobby cheerleader Alona Dare just before a school bus runs her over outside of gym class. After returning to her high school as a ghost, she begins to discover its pettiness and discovers that only outcast Will Killian can see her. Fans of Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side (2009) will enjoy the humorous banter and romantic tension as the two teens make a pact to aid one another in this amusing debut told in alternating voices. While Alona helps Will deal with the pack of spirits who constantly beg him for a final wish, the unscrupulous psychiatrist who wants to lock up him up, the principal who wants to see him fail before graduation and the black cloud that has started following him, Will, in return, teaches Alona how to be kinder and resist disappearing into nothingness. In the process, they realize each other’s mysteries, the keys to solving them and their attractive qualities. Kade makes this unlikely scenario feel real. (Paranormal romance. YA)
