Ghostgirl: Homecoming by Tonya Hurley has a good storyline. But there’s a flaw in the presentation. Hurley mentions snippets of the past, but fails to explain them with enough detail for readers who haven’t read the first Ghostgirl book to follow along. If you plan on reading Ghostgirl, start with book one.
The concept is similiar to Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and Elsewhere by Gabriel Zeven in that it’s told, at least partly, from the perspective of the deceased.
