Overview

Melissa Soul is looking forward to a long, hot California summer—one sunny enough to make her forget her parents’ impending divorce and the ugly “For Sale” sign in her front yard.

Her goals are pretty basic: 1) avoid babysitting her annoying little brother, 2) hang out at the beach with her best friend, Chloe, and 3) finally exchange a few intelligent words with Chloe’s brainscramblingly cute older brother, Chaz.

But all that changes fast when Melissa meets the new guy in Chloe’s life. Mysterious and magnetic, James haunts Chloe’s 1920s mansion—and Melissa’s dreams. She falls for him so hard that soon everything else falls away . . . including the heartbreaking possibility that he might be in love with her best friend.

Is falling in love with a ghost a dead end? Or is there a ghost of a chance?


“A lighthearted story that is told with humor and sensitivity.” —Cedar Rapids Gazette

    A nonstop page turner

    When Chloe (Melissa's best friend) starts off the end of the school year by telling her that there is a ghost in her new mansion Melissa doesn't know what to believe. She thinks Chloe has gone mad, that is until she meets the irresistable James. A book that girls will definetly enjoy being put in real life situations. Once you pick this up you won't be able to stop until the last page.

    Good Book For Teenage Girls

    Ghost of a Chance is a very good book. I read this book 3 times and everytime I read it, it gets better and better. This book is mainly for girls around the ages of 11-15. I think that the books should have a sequel. If you want a good book for a teenage girl around the ages I recommending I promise you they will LOVE IT like I love BOOKS!!
