Ghostgirl: Homecoming by Tonya Hurley


Charlotte Usher is back in Ghostgirl: Homecoming and she has graduated from Dead Ed...only, she hasn't quite moved up in the afterworld. She's now got an internship at a hotline for troubled teens—a job Charlotte is certain that she isn't exactly qualified for—and her new friend Maddy is super controlling. And then when her earthly friends find themselves in deep trouble, Charlotte will have to make a decision that could change everything.

Charlotte and her gang are just as amusing and entertaining in this sequel to Ghostgirl. Tonya Hurley offers readers yet another twisty story that will have readers laughing even harder than the first book, but she also offers a little more depth as she tackles bigger issues and gets readers thinking a little more. The more observant reader will pick up once again on Hurley's many references to the horror genre, which makes Homecoming a fun and smart read. Though the ending and some resolutions are a bit abrupt and seem to happen without reasonable explanations, fans of the series will be able to overlook it in favor of the nicely satisfying ending.

Cover Comments: The cover for Homecoming matches that of its prequel, which is neat, and I like all of the new drawings and the purple and black color scheme. The style for these ghostgirl covers is rocking!

Ghostgirl: Homecoming will be available July 1st, 2009!

I have to disagree about the ending - I actually cried. I love Hurley's writing style. I think she's one of the best writers out there right now and it's great to have someone this smart and sharp and original writing for girls. I think that Homecoming was better than the first book. I hope there are more so I can have them all! They are gorgeous books!

This sounds like a really good read. I've never read anything by Tonya Hurley.

The first novel was amazing. I have read it over and over and over again. I forced my Mum to drive me to a nearby bookstore when it came out. I am anxiously awaiting the sequal.
