Review Girl VS Ghost by Kate McMurry, and Marie August

Girl vs Ghost (Misdirected Magic Trilogy, #1)


Girl vs Ghost is a young-adult, paranormal, romantic comedy suitable for all ages.
Isabel Lindley doesn’t believe in magic, but her best friend is obsessed with witchcraft. Strictly as a favor, Isabel agrees to help with a spell and is shocked when the ghost of a teenage boy splat-lands in her bedroom. Her friend is thrilled—even though only Isabel can see or hear the ghost—but Isabel is horrified. She’s the most ordinary sixteen-year-old girl on the planet. What is she supposed to do with a ghost who doesn’t know his own name, how he died, or why the heck he’s tied to Isabel with a psychic chain? Her only hope to take back her life is to help him solve the mystery of his demise so he can go to the Light. Or wherever. She’s not particular, as long as the ghost is gone. (Goodreads)

Girl vs Ghost is a cute teen read. In all honesty the two best friends, Isabel and Tripp, reminded me of my best friend and I in high school. We were always up for what the other was doing. Of course neither of us got a hot ghost attached to us as part of the deal. 

The first half of the book was very slow moving. The Story really begins when the girls think they have discovered who killed Marc (the Ghost).  It was intriguing to figure this mystery out. This is the point were Girl vs Ghost really picks up. I enjoyed reading about Isabel and Tripp, it was fun to see them getting themselves in and out of trouble.

As a whole this was a fun read. The ending was a bit abrupt, but this is a trilogy. I would like to see what the authors have next for these characters and will be on the look out for the next book.

Happy Reading
