"We all fall down. They call it falling for someone for a reason. ...Either way, you will carry the reminder of it forever. Whether it leaves a tiny scar or a permanent injury, only the future can tell."
Tonya Hurley had successfully (again) written a philosophical love story that all we non Dead-Ed kids that we can relate with!
In Ghostgirl: Lovesick, Charlotte Usher finally gets a boyfriend in her Dead world; Electric Eric (who died when the lightning struck his guitar's amplifier).
Then Mr. Markov decided that they all have to go back to the living world, to do their job again. Only this time, Charlotte wasn't assigned to help Scarlet, her best friend.
In fact, Charlotte was assigned to be with Damen--the guy who Charlotte was dead for--and be his guardian angel.
So off they go--Eric helplessly watching Charlotte with slight jealousy while Charlotte envies Scarlet who is guarded by Eric.
But love blinds everyone--it makes you want to change your self just to be better (even though sometimes it's for worse).
Ghostgirl: Lovesick tells the story that love, in life or death, is always difficult either way.
What I love about this book: In between the chapters there's quotes and Tonya Hurley's original thoughts on love that shadows the coming chapters and it's really beautiful. Ghostgirl: Lovesick is also funny and sweet; always a good read for everyone who's in or out of love. ;)
What I dislike about the book: At the end, it's always "The end?", it kinda...confuses me, makes me guess if there'll be another book or not....

This book helped me. It helped me be able to apologize to my boyfriend when we were fighting. It showed me tht because you make a mistake doesn't mean that your whole relationship was a mistake. It showed me that even though you get off the track you can get put back in the race if you keep trying. Espcially in chapter 12 when they wrote"who is going to make me forget you and get you off my mind I could be out breaking other people's hearts if you weren't still breaking mine." Also the phrase "I was feeling insecure you might not love me anymore." The phrases in the begging of each chapter are so heart felt that I kept rereading them. This book and the author are my inspiration. This book will be forever in my heart. THANK YOU TONYA HURLEY!!!!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Charlotte wasn't one of the "popular" girls in high school but she wasn't even noticed. The one time she was noticed is when she was dying and no one knew. No one really came to the funeral because no one even no who she was. It wasn't until after she died that she made friends. One happened to be alive and her name was Scarlet. Scarlet was the sister of Petula, the girl who possibly hated Charlotte the most. Once Charlotte died she was sent to a place called "Dead Ed". This was one of the places everyone would go to before actually going to heaven. Dead Ed was a place where everyone would talk about how they died and how they felt about it. Time went by and everyone graduated, but time to cross over? No.
After Dead Ed everyone was sent to a place where they would talk to people who were alive and help them with their problems. Charlotte met a lot of people there, some she knew from Dead Ed; and some were a new faces. Charlotte kept to herself mostly nothing new. She felt dead when she was alive and now that she is alive why should she change? Time went by and it was almost tim to cross over, so everyone thought. But Charlotte was told she would have to revisit her old high school? What could come of this, she didn't know; but it couldn't be good. She must figure out what will happen when she might run into a few familiar faces, and one she trusts the most is the one that can see her. But can she trust her any longer, and will this be the last time she ever gets to see her? Will Charlotte be over Damen even though there might be a new guy in her picture, who is also dead. Will Damen even care that Charlotte is there even for a little bit? She must find out why she can't cross over and seeing Damen for the last time might help her solve her problem. Follow scarlet on a journey as she explains how life and death could possibly just be the same. Will anyone even care that your gone or will you actually mean something to people in the world. Charlotte has to cross over once she finds out what is holding her back because stuck in the middle is not an option.

Ghostgirl is a good series about death, dark humor, and feeling invisable. bringing back the saying " I feel alone even in a crowded room."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Ghostgirl Charlotte is back, this time enjoying her new (after)life with a boyfriend on her arm and a task she has to complete. She must go back to Hawthorne and help one of her ex-fellow classmates with their problem, before the prom. Of course, for Charlotte it already gets complicated when her boyfriend, Eric, gets assigned to her best friend, Scarlett, whose boyfriend, Damen, is assigned to Charlotte. Confusing? Yes! Before they know it, the couples are quickly in shambles, as Scarlett is unsure if Damen truly likes the real her, and Charlotte just isn't too pleased with all the time Scarlett and Eric are spending together. With a radio competition; a possessed mystery that leads to a new popular girl in school; a Petula that seems to be, shall we say it, nicer; a new look for Scarlett; and a prom that just might start with the wrong mix of couples - it might be a while before Charlotte can truly rest in peace. Third in the GHOSTGIRL series, Tonya Hurley does not disappoint, as she continues to bring on the hilarity, angst, and mystery to her very own world. Charlotte and her problems can actually be very relatable, even if she is dead. Readers will be satisfied with this installment, all the while wondering if there will be a fourth.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I waited what seemed like ages for this book to come out. It follows Charlotte, Scarlet, and Petula as they each go through their lives. The book begins with Charlotte having a rocker ghost boyfriend named eric. As their final assignment before they can cross over, they must be sent back to high school to help the living. Charlotte doesnt mind so much except that it will mean testing her relationship to eric in a such a way that they may not make it as a couple. Scarlet is also having boyfriend issues of her own. Damien is off to college; she is still in school. Are they better off going their separate ways? Petula also has a surprise of her own. She is a completely different person than she was in ghostgirl and even ghostgirl homecoming. Her story ending is also a rather unexpected one. This is a great book and amazing series!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
