The final book in The Ghost and the Goth Trilogy!

The Ghost
I’ve been trapped in the body of Lily “Ally” Turner for a month now. Talk about a fashion crisis on an epic scale. What worries me more, though, is sometimes I catch Will looking at me like he thinks I’m Lily...or that he wishes I were. Without the good looks of my former self, I don’t know who I am, or if who that is is good enough. I need out of this mess. Now.

Will and I have been looking for a solution, one that would separate me from Lily without killing her. But it’s not going well. Then, when it seems like things couldn’t get any worse, we run into Misty, my former best friend and boyfriend-stealer extraordinaire, who claims she’s being me. Seriously?

I’m determined to get to the bottom of who’s pretending to be the spirit of Alona Dare (while I’m pretending to be someone else) and then get the heck out of this body. Or die trying...

The Goth
I’ll admit it. It’s really weird to look at Alona but see Lily. I do know the difference, though, contrary to what Alona might be saying. And Alona is more than a pretty face to me, not that she would believe that.

Our one lead for some help in this messed up situation might be a page torn from the yellow pages-—the “Psychics” section-—I found in my dad’s stuff. One of the “fakes” seems a bit more real-—and odd-—than the others. Before I can investigate further, though, Alona is off and chasing a ghost that’s probably nothing more than a figment of Misty’s guilty imagination. Now Lily’s family is freaking out because she didn’t come home, my mom is ordering me to stay out of it, and something is definitely wrong with the person formerly known as Lily “Ally” Turner...

I was really happy that this series has only 3 installment. The Ghost and Goth is definitely one of those books that are funny with a little bit humor and Romance packed in 1 story. After reading the second sequel Queen of the Dead, I was already rooting for what ending will it be for the last Sequel. I mean trapped in in the body of Lily Turner, will it really be possible for her to claim the body? I was having a gut feeling that she might die in the end (which is ironically funny because she was obviously dead). Which I think turns out to be contrary to what I expect.

Although this book really oppose my belief about spirits taking over peoples body, I think it was better to just go with the flow. I really loved the ending, and I honestly don't mind if Alona took over Lily's body. I mean if it was really not meant to happen, she should be kicked out right away right? Anyway, the book is totally good. Maybe someday I'll be re-reading it..
