Food For a Hungry Ghost Review and Giveaway


Food for a Hungry Ghost

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?

My Review


I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  Gala Rhyce moves to a new town.  Not only is she so far south that it doesn’t snow, but she’s miles away from her friends.  Then she “meets” the very unique Trista.  My first instinct would have been to stay away from the ghostly teen and stay far away from that creepy house.  I liked this ghost story; it was horror without completely creeping me out.  I thought the character development was a wee bit fast, at least where Gala and Trista are concerned.  Ghost or not, I’m not going to be your best friend in two or three days.  Part of me was disappointed with Gala, as she allowed a ghost to guilt her into doing things.  Most of the ghostly antics are just downright hilarious.  I also thought the Flagler Beach community was pretty realistic of a small town.  The people were a little quirky yet friendly and kept thinking to myself “I like to live there!”  How does Gala deal with her new life, and friends, even the dead one? you’ll have to read the book and find out. This was such a fun novel; I hope there will be many more adventures for Gala.
