Review by Liyanna
The book was funny troughout and exciting towards the end, but it lacked some depth to my taste. Especially in the love department: girl meets boy and wham they're in love. I like the Bella-Edward Cullen kind of romance better: where they long to be together but can't, and meet lots of obstacles before they can finally be a couple. Now, if the ghost had fallen in love with a human boy, that would have been something. Other than that I liked it, and the humor kind of reminded me of Sophie Kinsella's book Twenties Girl, in which a ghost asks her great-niece to help her find a lost necklace.
Review by AdonisGuilfoyle
A short, fluffy YA novel about a teenage girl who is murdered and forced to spend her afterlife haunting the gents on Carnaby Street. The ghostly heroine, Lucy, and the short length are perfect for YA readers, but this story also reads like a junior 'chick lit' story in places. The ending is a bit rushed and the various subplots are tied up rather too neatly, but I enjoyed the unlikely friendship between Lucy and Jeremy - very <i>Randall and Hopkirk</i> - and there were a few touching moments. A sort of teen mash-up of <i>My So-Called Life</i> - for kids of the 90s - and <i>Ghost Whisperer</i>, this is a fun, quick, uncomplicated read, perfect for teens - and readers of all ages with an interest in ghost stories!
