Book Review: Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe (1-ARC Tours)

Give Up the Ghost Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe

My rating: 4.5/5.0
I received this through 1-ARC-Tours. It's an entertaining and enjoyable young adult book with a paranormal element.

My Review:

Cass sees ghosts, it started with her sister right after she died and then there were others. After her best friend turned against her she used what the ghosts overheard to right the wrongs that middle school and high school students perpetuate against each other. Because of that she is on the outside of everything that goes on in high school. Everyone is scared of her and what she knows. Not to mention her home life is going down the tubes too, with a mom that is never around and a dead sister who always is.

Then Tim steps into the picture. Tim is the super popular Vice President of the student council. Tim's mother passed away recently and that has caused all of the kids at the school to be super nice to him. When he befriends Cass, she looks for the ways that he is trying to get to her. She doesn't believe anyone at school could want to be her friend and even though he does want something from her he continues to stick around her and confuse Cass even more.

I really enjoyed this book, the interplay between Tim and Cass was great. The ghosts were pretty funny at times and sad at times too. It's a great young adult book that is a quick read, but has some thought provoking moments too. I will gladly pick up the next book Ms. Crewe writes and I am thrilled I got a chance to read and review this one.
