Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shirley Nelson
In the third book in "The Ghost and the Goth Trilogy," Will and Alona are searching for a way to free Alona from Lily's body. After Alona's sudden death, she became Will's Spirit Guide. The two had not been friends in high school; in fact, Alona, the cheerleader would not be caught dead with a geek like him. But after her death they were forced to work together. Will is able to talk to ghosts and help them resolve issues that bind them to Earth. When Will's friend Lily is lying in a coma after an automobile accident, Alona enters her body. While she loves having a body again, she has problems adapting to Lily's style and feels guilty for deceiving Lily's family. She and Will attempt to contact a medium for help, but only find more trouble when the medium's twin tries to take Alona's place. Faced with the typical teen problems caused by cliques and alcohol abuse, Will and Alona fight to find a resolution to the Alona/Lilly situation. Those readers who have not read the first two books in the series may find the ghostly rules a bit confusing. Reviewer: Shirley Nelson

    When Alona finds herself trapped inside Lily Turner she doesn't

    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).

    Alona is in Lily's body and tries to get used to her new situation as she and Will meet a familiar face. And are told that there being haunted by Alona. But how could it be her if she's with Will? Thus Will and Alona try to find what's going on. These books are pretty good. Throughout there were annoying moments, cute moments and some sad moments.. Recommend the books.

    Back again in the final book of the Ghost and Goth series, Alon


    Back again in the final book of the Ghost and Goth series, Alona and Will continue their sometimes flirty, sometimes harsh verbal jabs. Because Alona is ensconced in Lily’s body, she is forced to take time to look at family relationships and think a bit more about her actions. Yes, she can be a Mean Girl but her transformation into someone not thinking only about herself becomes clear in this story. Will has to figure a lot of things out on his own because his Spirit Guide, Alona, is not available to help him; poor boy just does stupid things but does come around in the end. A solid ending to the series.

    Review: Body & Soul

    I was hoping that being the last in the series, that this installment would tie up all the story threads nicely. Not an easy task I'm sure. I've come to care about these characters and I want a happy ending for them.

    I am impressed with the amount of character growth Alona has had throughout this series. It's really a shame that her death is what caused this. I actually felt sorry for her this book. She's not very good at articulating how she really feels. And Will is very bad at interpreting what she really means. So, they spend quite a bit of this book arguing and misunderstanding each other. Which is unfortunate because since the story is told from both points of views, we know how they really feel.

    Alona is trying hard to be someone she's not. I can't imagine how difficult it would be to impersonate someone whose characteristics are so far from your own. For once, Alona has no confidence in who she is. She's uncomfortable in her own skin. And she's not ungrateful for the chance she's been given. She knows exactly how lucky she is to be alive. She just doesn't know how to by the Lily everybody wants her to be. And she especially hates the fact that she feels like Will wishes it was the real Lily.

    Will kind of drove me a little crazy. He seemed to always take what Alona was saying and twist it around to something else. He never gave her the chance to just be herself. He was constantly tell her that it wasn't how Lily would do it. Well of course it's not, Alona isn't Lilly. He didn't give her half the chance. I was happy to see him finally come to that understanding in the end.

    The ghost in question in this story was the only downfall. I think she was toned down a lot. She's just didn't strike the fear in mean that she should have. She will stop and nothing to have another chance at life, but yet she doesn't really come across that way. I actually found the story her life much more interesting. How it related to Malachi the Magnificent was one of the better parts to her story.

    I was happy with the ending. It was what I was hoping for given the circumstances. I think it will work out in the long run. Although, I do admit that I'm curious about the long term ramifications of it.

    Alright. I read another book that I had on my shelf for the long

    Alright. I read another book that I had on my shelf for the longest time. And finally…I can say. YES! I adored it!

    Plot: This story follows what has happening in the first two books, so if you haven’t read the series, go now and read it. So this plot moves pretty fast with Alona and Will. They got their everyday life down to a routine and it’s up to them to fix what is wrong. Alona and Will have come a long way. They figured out some pretty tricky stuff but also have grown a lot along the way.

    Friendship/Love: I love how well these two have gotten to know one another. At first, they were on each other nerves and now, they need each other. They have learned to depend on one another and trust on another. Once I was getting more towards the end, my heart began to race more. I wanted them to find a way to be together but also to be at peace.

    Ending: I think the ending is very fitting. Both Alona and Will have fought hard to get where they are at and to see them happy… its awesome!!

    Overall, I adore this series. It has great growth from start to finish. Both characters have learn quite a bit about one another and despite them being so different, they fell in love. Body & Soul is great!

    The Ghost and the Goth was a fabulous series. Its fans would say

    The Ghost and the Goth was a fabulous series. Its fans would say that it touched each of our souls. It made us laugh, and see the issues of High School and life in a whole new light. Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time for the end to come. Body and Soul was a wonderful conclusion to a lovely series. We will mourn over the fact that this was the last chapter. But for me, at least, I will know all three of these books are now in a better place – a special spot in my heart and on my bookshelf. May their pages forever turn.
