Overview

GFFs Rochelle, Robecca, and Venus begin to settle in at Monster High and are having a fangtastic time getting involved in the student body. Rochelle is tutoring the trolls, Robecca is blasting onto the Skulltimate Roller Maze team, and Venus is starting a compost pile with Lagoona Blue! The ghoulfriends are even recruited to help Toralei and Cleo plan the Hex Factor Talent Show.
But during Mr. Mummy's Catacombing class, the ghouls find hints of a new threat to the school. And when white cats start showing up around the Creepateria-a bad omen for monsters!-the GFFs begin to wonder if their fun is over. Is Toralei playing pranks? Or is something more sinister haunting the halls of Monster High?

Editorial Reviews

At Monster High, final examinations are the least exciting time. In fact, ghoulfriends forever Rochelle, Robecca, and Venus seem much too occupied by troll-tutoring and talent shows to be bothered much by academic demand. Only one thing snaps them to full attention: A white cat infestation around the Creepateria sends a clear message that something is up at good old MHS—but is it a prank or an invasion? A light-hearted paranormal romp.

Meet the Author

Gitty Daneshvari was born in the creepy crawly yet ever so sunny city of Los Fangeles. As a young ghoul she was loquacious, curious, and freakishly fearful. Worried about everything from matted fur to aliens invading to getting stuck in an elevator, her diverse range of phobias was a most burdensome flaw. However, as she grew up and faced her fears, Gitty found they were the perfect inspiration for her defrightful middle grade series School of Fear.

Gitty currently lives in New Volt City with her spooktacularly smelly English Bulldog Harriet.

Ghoulfriends Just Want to Have Fun was exactly half a book, ending on the sort of cliffhanger that is acceptable in a TV series or comic book, where you can expect your audience to tune in next week, next month, or after the summer hiatus, but in an actual published book where a reader expects to read the beginning, middle, and end of the story, it's pretty darned disappointing. This, like Ghoulfriends Forever, was not a good book. Still, I paid for it, so I stuck with it and read Ghoulfriends Just Want to Have Fun all the way through. It was better than Ghoulfriends Forever, at least; evidently someone told the author that when readers pick up a Monster High book, they'd like to see some involvement from more than about five of the characters they're familiar with-- so this one actually includes significant and plot-relevant appearances from Frankie, Cleo, Lagoona, Toralei, Jinafire, Skelita, and Spectra, with a few words put in by Clawdeen, Draculaura, Deuce, and HooDude, too. Rochelle, Venus, and Robecca still run the show, and somewhere inbetween Ghoulfriends Forever and Ghoulfriends Just Want to Have Fun, the author does seem to have gotten a little more familiar with the characters... ... But Rochelle is still a rules-lawyer (though her boy-craziness has been tamped down a bit, and she has even randomly broken up with Garrott, so I don't know what happened in Scaris in this continuity), Robecca's out-of-period slang is still in place (and joined by a couple dozen original sayings along the lines of 'the bee's knees,' including 'the oat's goats'), HooDude has gone from a boy a little confused and hurt to be denied what he was made for to stalking Frankie, and Headmistress Bloodgood spends the first three-quarters of the book still being largely ineffectual. The plot, again, is thin, and if you cross the Monster High TV special Fright On with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, remove the snakes, the blood, and the references to desegregation, then stop the story exactly halfway through instead of plotting a climax, you have Ghoulfriends Just Want To Have Fun. And the ethnic-slur vampire sisters show up again. Only three times, instead of five or six times as in the previous book, but I was still hoping the author would never ever use that word or those students again. They don't contribute anything to the plot-- they just show up doing their standard 'don't like to stay put' gag and disappear again. It's really not worth it for a stereotype and an ethnic slur. And speaking of stereotypes, something about the way Skelita started half her sentences with 'si, si' bothered me. And Jinafire spouted proverbs in her longest scene. And at one point it's mentioned that oh, hey, it's the Day of the Dead without any kind of explanation of the significance of the holiday. The few saving graces of the book are, again, the artwork (I want a Dead Tired Rochelle in that puffed-sleeve nightie), Headmistress Bloodgood's Normie Loves Fluffy plan, and the faint hope that we'll finally see production of the Daughter of Arachne doll. Suffice it to say, even with the cliffhanger, the Ghoulfriends books have lost me. I plan to return them, and to stick with fanfiction from here on out; at least if that makes me cringe or at the writing or word choice or cheap cliffhanger, I can click Back and I won't have wasted any money.

It enjoyable but doesn'talways match up with what you already know about the ghouls. It's not a long storyline for a book. I undrstand they want to do a series but really with such short books your gonna have to up the speed of release. Really fall of 2013? I read this within a day.

Boring, underdeveloped plot, recycled dialogue, one-dimensional characters. This book is a waste of money and there are far better out there to read for this age range. The only good thing about it was the well drawn art, but other than that I can't think of one redeeming quality for this poor excuse for a book.
