Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto.

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so–in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history–he agrees to help her complete her “unfinished business.” But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff’s new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he’s made the right choice.

Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy’s The Scarlet Pimpernel

What I thought:

This story is told through a male point of view, Jeff, a teenager who just moved cities. He seemed like a good guy and he always tried to do the right thing no matter what, which is nice to see in a character. He of course fell hard for another girl in this book, and was trying to win her over. It was kind of cute, but the funniest part was the kissing scene in the rain!

Then there’s Kimberlee, the ghost who loved to steal things when she was still alive. She’s the typical popular girl who used to run the school with people either loving or hating her. The whole thing with Jeff having to return her stuff was pretty interesting and I did like all the danger they went through to do it. There was even a case of breaking and entering!

This book was an easy read and it went by fast (my 2 hour train ride helped), but I still really enjoyed it. The ending was very touching and it ended the book perfectly.
