Ghostgirl :: Homecoming Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 04, 2009

Charlotte Usher is dead. But that doesn’t stop her best friend from seeking her help in the afterlife. Kidzworld reviews Ghostgirl: Homecoming by Tonya Hurley.

Author: Tonya Hurley

Charlotte Usher is dead. You would think this is where her story ends, but in fact, death by gummy bear was only the beginning. Since she graduated from Dead Ed, Charlotte has been an unwilling intern for a troubled teen hotline. Only she, unlike every other intern, hasn’t received a single call.


Everlasting Boredom

Charlotte is bored out of her mind, resenting the fact that she’ll never get to grown up or get married, or even change her clothes for that matter. She spends her days chatting with Matilda, her new roommate and fellow intern, and staring at her phone, willing it to ring.


Ethics vs. Popularity

One day, Charlotte’s best friend Scarlett temporarily crosses over to the afterlife (through a self-induced coma), urgently seeking Charlotte’s help: Scarlett’s sister Petula is in a coma, mere inches from death, and only Charlotte can help bring her back. But Charlotte is torn. She’s always wanted to be beautiful and popular like Petula, whose materialistic and appearance-minded attitude is the reason she fell into a coma. Should Charlotte help Scarlett resurrect her sister (even though they didn’t really care for each other in the first place), or should she use this opportunity to possess Petula’s body and become the most popular girl at Hawthorne High?


The Bottom Line

Ghostgirl: Homecoming is the second novel in Tonya Hurley’s Ghostgirl series. It was a creative concept, telling the story from the perspective of people who are both alive and dead. Unfortunately, if you haven’t read the first book, Homecoming might be a little hard to follow. It mentions scenarios from the first book without properly explaining them. The references confuse the reader rather than get them caught up. So if you want to read this series, definitely start from book one.


Ghostgirl: Homecoming Book Rating: 3
