Description

Alona Dare has been living as Lily "Ally" Turner for over a month...and it's not been easy. Besides being trapped in a body so not as good as her original one, she's failing miserably at playing the sister and daughter of people she barely knows. Plus, she can't help but think that Will Killian - the boy she hates to care about - somehow wishes the real Lily were back. She and Will have been trying to find a solution, looking for a two-for-one miracle that would free Alona and keep Lily alive. Visits to local psychics have proven useless, but then they stumble across Malachi the Magnificent, who seems to be different. His office is full of ghosts, for one thing. But Malachi doesn't seem to hear or see them, which is odd. Plus, he bolts the moment he sees Will. To make things even weirder, Misty Evans, Alona's former best friend, is waiting in Malachi's lobby and claiming that she's being haunted. By Alona. Will's convinced that Malachi has answers, while Alona is all kinds of pissed that someone's impersonating her. But their efforts to uncover the truth will bring them much unwanted attention and put them directly in the path of a ghost who will stop at nothing for another stab at life. Even if it means destroying Alona.show more

Our customer reviews

When Alona finds herself trapped inside Lily Turner she doesn't know what to think: Happy for being able to have a body, to feel things through fingers that are actually not hers, to eat using a mouth that is not hers... And OMG why on earth did she have to end up inside this body?! There is no justice, let me tell you. Not only was Lily's body in no shape but also she had been Will's crush once. Not very long ago, actually. And she knew that every time he looked at her Will could only see her body. But she wasn't Lily nor was she willing to become her in order to keep her family happy. And don't get me wrong here, she did care for Lily's family. In some sort of way she envied her for having such a loving family while hers had been broken for a long time. That's why she decided to become Ally (a mix of Alona and Lily) to try to make everyone happy until she could get out of there. But when her ex-bestfriend, Misty (not knowing who is inside Ally's body) tells her that Alona' spirit is haunting her she is just too shocked to talk. Who the heck is pretending to be her?! It's time for Will and Alona to resolve another mystery, to find the answers they are seeking and try to figure out a way to be together despite the fact that she is dead and he is not. Personal opinion: Finally the last book of The Ghost and the Goth series is here and I couldn't be... Well, I'm not sure. Mixed feelings again. I did like the book and how Stacey developed the whole plot answering all the last questions, tying all the knots and creating a last problem for Alona and Will to resolve. My husband was tired of seeing me with this big O in my face or saying things like "OMG... no, this can't be happening" or "Please, please..." the whole time, but what can I say? I was caught up and glad to be there. Then again we are talking about the last book, you know? Which means there's no going back, no more Will with his compelling darkness, no more Alona with that cruel sincerity of hers. Talking about that, I have to say that so far Alona is the one and only bad girl I like. She is an idiot, she just doesn't undertand that above looks people have feelings but in the end she shows some... well, some sort of love for the people she cares about. There's a good heart inside her, it doesn't matter how much she tries to hide it, you will be able to see it become bigger and bigger with each book. And Will... well, he's completely different from her (which is very obvious). Maybe not the kind of guy I would fall for but then again, he has something that makes him special. His loyalty is maybe one of the things I like most. And then the fact that he cares for everybody. I like it when they fight during days, barely speak to each other or acknowledge the presence of the other in the same room and then, say trouble out loud and despite their differences they just forget everything and fight together. It's actually very funny (and sweet too, yes).show more
