"And though the symptoms of lovesickness may be many, they all share a single cause and single cure: You" (P. 82).

Summary: Charlotte's life, or more correctly, her death, has now been going down a wonderful path. She has her parents back, she now has a wonderful boyfriend, Eric (who cares if they haven't kissed yet, or that they can't kiss in the first place, they still have each other) and the work at the hotline is finally ending and so she can get on with her death. Now, Charlotte and the Dead Ed students learn that their next step is to go back to where they lived and help the living. Charlotte is paired up with Damen and Eric with Scarlett. When Eric finds out about how Charlotte basically died for Damen he goes into a state of jealousy, leaving Charlotte confused, about her feelings for Eric and also what she is going to have to do with Damen.

On the other side of the death pond, Scarlett is confused about her love with Damen, she has a need to change for him, but does she really want to? Petula finds herself slowly losing the place she has worked so hard to get because a new girl who brings about a dark shadow whom lurks in the, well, shadows.

Wdebo's Review: Ghostgirl: Lovesick was defidently my favorite of the Ghostgirl series. The writing has improved as each book passes and this one was wonderfully written, the storyline was fresh and I am just so happy that Charlotte finally has a love that actually likes her back.

The story was very well written, it was addicting and, of course, had a twist at the end, that really keeps you interested. I really love the little sayings and explanations before every chapter, they are all so fun and interesting to read.

I was only displeased about a couple of things with the story. One being that I did not like the quickness of relationships, how, as happy as I was that Charlotte and Eric were together, I really wanted to know a little history of how they met, and also with the relationship between Petula and Tate, I wished that their relationship would have been expanded on, there was a very small amount of their actual falling for each other, it seemed to have just been boy meets girl ________ boy falls in love with girl. The other thing how things seem to come at the perfect time and coincidentally, it seemed kind of fake how all of a sudden something that would help them would just pop up. Apart from those two things the story was great.

My favorite character def has to be Scarlett, she is so real and awesome. Charlotte has become a character that has really grown on me, I remember how I absolutely hated her in Ghostgirl, but she has slowly matured and become a better and better person/ghost.

Cafe Cover Chat: This is my favorite cover of all of the Ghostgirl covers. I love the maroon (?) color and Charlotte's pose is gorgeously wonderful. (A-)

All in all, a great continuation to the series. Ghostgirl lovers will not be disappointed!

  1. Good review! I've seen this in stores and wondered what it was about. I also feel disappointed when plots are resolved by all-too-convenient events. I like results to be brought about by characters' efforts and well thought-out plot twists.


Comment! I want to hear what you have to say =D
