Girl vs Ghost by Kate McMurry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Way Cute! I was hooked once I started reading this book!
I've never been much of witchcraft when I was a teen, but this was so cool! NOTHING like how I thought the book would be like :)
The book starts off with 2 friends, Isabel and Tripp playing around one Friday night. Tripp tries to do a summoning and lo and behold - a strange teenage boy falls from the sky and lands in the circle of salt right in the middle of Isabel's bedroom!
When Isabel stands up to defend herself, she finds out that Tripp has no idea who Isabel is talking about. But Isabel can see and hear this stranger. And no one knows why.
Isabel and Tripp decide to go to Tripp's grandmother whom happens to own a witchcraft shop, and ask her for help.
When Alora (Tripp's Grandmother) begins her own summonsing for an Angel to take this boy towards the light - we learn that it is not his time.. This boy (Marc) has a quest he needs to conquer, and being tied to Isabel (literally with a 5 foot long orange rope) because Isabel was suppose to be there to help him.
This book was way cute in many ways - When Marc learns there is a lot more to Isabel's life then the furry she directs at him constantly.
Marc trying to help her by fighing the "low spirits" (those were spooky) and of course Tripp.. Her personality was just awesome!
Isabel and Tripp try their best to help out Marc with learning about his life and death. To try to help him finish his quest, but it seems like everything is against them.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It had a lot of twists to it to keep you guessing how Marc died, and what's going to happen next.
I also really liked seeing the illistrations on each chapter :)
Defiantly going to be looking out for book 2 - Witches Vs Wizards’ That comes out in November 2011 :)
