Week 32 Review: Body & Soul

From Goodreads:
The final book in The Ghost and the Goth Trilogy!

The Ghost
I've been trapped in the body of Lily "Ally" Turner for a month now. Talk about a fashion crisis on an epic scale. What worries me more, though, is sometimes I catch Will looking at me like he thinks I'm Lily...or that he wishes I were. Without the good looks of my former self, I don't know who I am, or if who that is is good enough. I need out of this mess. Now.

Will and I have been looking for a solution, one that would separate me from Lily without killing her. But it's not going well. Then, when it seems like things couldn't get any worse, we run into Misty, my former best friend and boyfriend-stealer extraordinaire, who claims she's being haunted...by me. Seriously?

I'm determined to get to the bottom of who's pretending to be the spirit of Alona Dare (while I'm pretending to be someone else) and then get the heck out of this body. Or die trying...

The Goth
I'll admit it. It's really weird to look at Alona but see Lily. I do know the difference, though, contrary to what Alona might be saying. And Alona is more than a pretty face to me, not that she would believe that.

Our one lead for some help in this messed up situation might be a page torn from the yellow pages-—the "Psychics" section-—I found in my dad’s stuff. One of the "fakes" seems a bit more real-—and odd-—than the others. Before I can investigate further, though, Alona is off and chasing a ghost that's probably nothing more than a figment of Misty's guilty imagination. Now Lily's family is freaking out because she didn't come home, my mom is ordering me to stay out of it, and something is definitely wrong with the person formerly known as Lily "Ally" Turner...

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book! I thought that Alona in Lily's body would be something, and yeah, it was pretty much this whole book, figuring out what happened, and how to deal with it, though that changes over the course of the book!

So Alona,, I think, deals with the whole situation to the best of her ability. Of course, there's the Misty problem, which was really great for her to focus on while Will was doing his ghost-talker thing, investigating what to do, when she couldn't, seeing as she was in Lily's body!

The solution that they come up with-and the solving of the fake Alona ghost, just prove what a great team that Alona and Will make, and yeah, I'm glad that they got that happy ending, and that things worked out that way! So great!

I was a bit sad to read this book. It's the last in the series, and we probably won't get any new material about them anymore, and that sucks, because I really enjoyed reading about them. But they've also been through so much and need a rest!

Really fantastic book, and I can't wait to see what Stacey Kade will write next!
