After a close encounter with a bus, Alona Dare goes from homecoming queen to Queen of the Dead. She’s stuck as a ghost in the land of the living with no sign of the big, bright light to take her to a better place. To make matters worse, the only person who might be able to help her is Will Killian, a total loser outcast. More than anything, Will wishes he didn’t have the rare ability to communicate with the dead, especially the former mean girl of Groundsboro High. He’s not filling out any volunteer forms to help her cross to the other side, though it would bring him some welcome peace and quiet. Can they get over their mutual distrust -- and quasi-attraction -- to work together? Readers of this spirited paranormal comedy won't want this odd couple to ever part.

It was an interesting take on ghost stories, certainly one I've never read before--or that I think I have...though the Charley Davidson series is kinda like it, I guess. I was drawn in early on and although Alona was a little annoying at the start I have to say she'd grown on me (and Will) by the ...
Ohhhhhhhhhh, I can't wait to start the next book; this one was so damn fun! And somebody please slap the cover artist five ways to Soviet Union.
