Overview

Life was pleasantly normal for Gala Rhyce—that is, until her mom moved the family to Flagler Beach, Florida. Now—despite the palm trees, ocean breezes, and cute surfer guys—Gala is miserable…until she meets Trista. Trista makes a great friend, except for one thing: she's a ghost.

The girls learn to communicate, and through Gala, Trista finds a way to experience the world again. As Gala’s romance with a heartthrob poet begins to bloom, her unlikely friendship with Trista continues—until the ghost wants more than Gala can give, and things start to go horribly wrong.

Filled with horror, romance, and humor, Food for a Hungry Ghost is about friendship, trust, jealousy, and boundaries that get pushed too far.

How much can Gala endure? Will she survive the clutches of the Hungry Ghost?

Meet the Author

This wasn't really the plan...I mean this author thing. I was supposed to be out in the world saving sick birds or helping people laid out on a couch find their inner child. I was supposed to be living in some little unknown town-- like Waunaukee, Wisconsin or Newton, Iowa, watching my imaginary husband play in his imaginary band, with my two kids dressed so sweetly.

Yet here I am in Flagler Beach, Florida of all places, with a husband who doesn't play guitar and kids who choose their own clothes. I am not bandaging sparrows wings or mending broken hearts, but writing books that seems to draw out the inner child in me. Not much of this was part of the plan, but what ever is?

    Enjoyed

    It is a good book for teenage females. I am 63 yrs old & sorta of enjoyed it. It was refreshing to read something without a lot of cussing & especially the F.... word. I do hope the author Becky Pourchot is successful. I also liked that it was written about my home town (now). I recognized some of the places she wrote about. We have been in this beach town for 20 yrs plus.

    Food for a Hungry Ghost is a really good short story.  Gala





    Food for a Hungry Ghost is a really good short story.  Gala and Trista a total opposites.  Gala first of all is alive - while Trista is not, she is a ghost. I found much of the story predictable - until the very last paragraph!  Gala gives something to Trista that no one else can.  Gala sees the relationship as a friendship while Trista views the relationship as freedom.  It becomes very clear that freedom can overtake the friendship.  Gala becomes wise to the deceit and manipulations by Trista and as things take a turn for the worst, Gala has to make a major choice.  












    Food for a Hungry Ghost is very well written and a great deal of information is packed into a short story (approx 75 pages).  The characters are portrayed very well and as a reader I had a clear understanding of their needs and wants.  Trista taught Gala many things - some good and some bad.  Both helped Gala to grow in ways she otherwise would not have.  I can't wait to read the next book - it was quite a cliffhanger.  I give this book 4 stars - it was very enjoyable.  












    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
