Give up the Ghost by Megan Crewe

   Cass McKenna much prefers ghosts over “breathers.” Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable, and they know the dirt on everybody…and Cass loves dirt. She’s on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of the poseurs in her school.

   But when the vice president of the student council discovers her secret, Cass’s whole scheme hangs in the balance. Tim wants her to help him contact his recently deceased mother, and Cass reluctantly agrees.
   As Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim’s life, she’s surprised to realize he’s not so bad—and he needs help more desperately than anyone else suspects. Maybe it’s time to give the living another chance….

I must say that this book was addicting! I loved the connection that Cass had with her sister Paige and at first I did not realize that Norris and Bitzy were really ghosts! That was stupid on my part! I really liked this book. I thought it was sweet that Cass could talk to all these people and learn new things about everyone. And she put that information to good use. Cass was a strong person and does not let anyone get in her way. She did not have a strong relationship with any living person. Her mom was always gone, Danielle and her did not talk, Cass talked to Paige and she was her best friend. Until Tim came along. At first it was weird. Tim knew something was different with Cass. The more that Cass and Tim hung out the closer they were getting. At first Cass thought she was using him to get more information on Paul and Danielle. But that’s not what it ended up being. No one really gave to hoots about both of them. They each had lost someone in their life that was important to them. In the end Cass is there for Tim. And she is not just there to help him talk to his dead mother, but to save Tim. This is another good book that everyone should read! =)
