    1. Two words to describe this book: SUPERFICIAL and BORING.Okay, I'm not usually a bitch to books. I generally favor what I read, regardless if the heroine is stupid or the plot is senseless as long as i get enjoyment from guilty pleasures and books i forced myself to read. In other words, I AM mostly nice even if i insult the main characters.Sadly, this book failed to captured my attention AND my respect.*shakes head* now where do i start. The amount of FAIL that this book gets from me is IMMENSE. [...]


    2. "Apakah Tuhan menjalankan saluran belanja via telepon? Pikir Charlotte"Charlotte dan teman-temannya telah lulus Kelas Pendidikan Kematian. Namun alih-alih menuju surga, mereka malah harus menangani hotline bagi remaja bermasalah. Sekali lagi Charlotte harus menghadapi kenyataan yang tidak menyenangkan. Semua temannya sibuk menerima telepon, hanya dirinya yang tidak menerima telepon! Bukan hanya itu, seluruh temannya mendapat hadiah kelulusan berupa pertemuan dengan orang yang dikenal dan dikagum [...]


    3. The supposed “twist” near the end reminded me of Scooby Doo. While this book was slightly better than the first, it’s almost as if Hurley can’t figure out what kind of author she’d like to be, what kind of books she’d like to write. Her writing style and characters have changed so much, the first book is only needed for background info on the characters. It’s more like her writing shouldn’t be published, so much as exist in a High School English class. The ending in this one is a [...]


    4. This was awful. I could not even finish it. The first was okay-at least it had SOME plot line-it kept me reading to find out if she got the guy (she didn't). The interesting cover is not enough to keep me reading, and really, the cover is the only thing this book has going for it. I hate the feeling of forcing myself to read something and since I had to do that here-I quit. The writing and story was juvenile, even if some of the topics were not. 50 pages in I am left wondering where this was goi [...]


    5. At the end of the first book I wondered if their was going to be a sequel and a few months latter I happily learned that their was another book coming out, the plot centers around the all important high school event of Homecoming, turns out Petulia had flunked her senior year in order to try to win Homecoming queen this year, her now senior year sister Scarlet is having a long distance relationship with college age Damen, both are ripped into a situation when Petulia mystreiously enters a coma, [...]


    6. Charlotte Usher finds out that 'graduating' in the afterlife isn't what it's cracked up to be. She ends up in a phone room, waiting for a teen to call for help. Except no one calls.Then tragedy hits Hawthorne High's most popular girl Petula. Her sister Scarlet, tries to help. Charlotte is the answer. But will Scarlet be able to get to her in time to save both of them?This is the sequel to GHOSTGIRL. This fast-paced novel kept me turning the pages wanting to see what Scarlet's answer to helping h [...]


    7. Gostei mais deste do que do primeiro, é mais profundo mas com o mesmo toque de humor :)Depois da graduação, Charlotte e outros fantasmas recebem a notícia que terão de fazer um estágio onde terão de responder a telefonemas de adolescentes que tem problemas dando conselhos. Mas antes de começarem todos recebem prendas devido à sua graduação infelizmente Charlotte não recebe nada dos seus pais e é a única que não recebe telefonemas. Mas a chegada de uma nova personagem Maddy irá tr [...]


    8. Y otra vez volví a agitarme interiormente. ¡Tonya, ¡¿qué has hecho?!-se da de golpes contra la pared-Pues como el primero no me dejó un buen sabor de boca, estaba segura de que éste no sería mucho mejor. Era mejor pensar eso y que me agradara el libro, a tener expectativas muy altas y terminar odiándolo. Y así fue…Charlotte ha madurado un poco. ¡Sí, lo hizo! YEY! pero se siente sola. Además, la gloria que pensaba obtener al final del primer libro se ha esfumado y vuelve a ser marg [...]


    9. Update 08/27/2014Rating: 1.5/5 starsIf you'd like to see this review on my blog.Homecoming is the second book of the Ghostgirl series, starting right where the first book left off. It tells the story of Charlotte after she and her classmates graduate from deadthology class. But crossing the threshold isn't as great as Charlotte imagined.This second installment in the Ghostgirl series was as much a disappointment as Ghostgirl was. As full as potential as bad plot development.The characters contin [...]


    10. Para ser sincera esperaba que Ghostgirl fuera de esos libros únicos que hoy en día escasean, pero me llevé una sorpresa al encontrarme con su continuación, fue grata ya que el final del primer libro fue abierto y daba mucho que imaginar. Ghostgirl, el regreso fue toda una odisea, no pude empezar a leérmelo hasta cerca de tres meses después de comprarlo y aún así se me hizo eterno, la actitud de Charlotte a cambiado, es más madura y astuta pero sigue pareciéndome una chica algo patétic [...]


    11. Now that Charlotte has finally graduated from Dead Ed, she will be going to Heaven, right? Nope.Instead, she is stuck giving advices to troubled teens through a hotline by being their "conscience". Except, she never gets any calls. Fun. Is this how the Afterlife supposed to be?Damen is at college now and Scarlet feels that their relationship is slowly deteriorating. Her utmost popular sister, Petula, is getting glammed up for homecoming. But unexpectedly, she falls into a coma after a bad pedicu [...]


    12. I can envision Ms. Hurley as a very likeable Goth. She's fun, quirky and an all-around sarcasm-user, that's for sure. Wtih Charlotte and her friends, Hurley creates a world of life and death that is humorous, loving, and not at all macabre. Although I would have enjoyed the occasional Poe-style horror.Sometimes, though, the way Hurley writes just rubs me the wrong way. Several times through out the book, I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn't Hurley's thoughts resonating through the words [...]


    13. This is one of those "horror lite" books - Charlotte has graduated from Dead Ed. and is stuck in customer service (which consists of waiting for Those in Need to call in for help, at which point she's supposed to act as that small, still voice that gives them good advice). She's living with Maddy, who appears to be one of those controlling friends that doesn't want Charlotte's old friends to be a part of her life; those old friends have reunited with people from their pasts and seem to be settli [...]


    14. Vuelve Charlotte con más aventuras. También lo hacen su amiga Scarlet y la hermana de ésta, Petula. Pero el lugar es diferente. Charlotte se encuentra ante una no-vida demasiado rutinaria y no termina de acostumbrarse a ella. Scarlet y Petula siguen con sus vidas en el instituto y Damen se encuentra algo distanciado de ellas. Todo parece muy normal hasta que un tonto accidente hace que Scarlet vuelva a necesitar la ayuda de Charlotte. Ésta que ha sido ignorada por sus amigas, decide ayudarla [...]


    15. I got the ARC of this book and I wanted to see what happened, seeing how the last one ended. I was so surprised at the turn this book took! First off, it's much better than the first one and I really liked the first one. This one is much deeper, but still has that hysterical wit and can stand on it's own. The author upped her game even more here. this is what good writing is all about. I can't wait to get the finished book this summer. this is definitely THE book for summer reading. LOVE IT!!!!! [...]


    16. Maybe I should have read the first book in this series before this one. There's a lot of references that made no sense to me. I have no idea how Charlotte died. The Dead Ed only made sense after awhile. None of the characters made me give a damn about them. Petula is a bitch, plain and simple. She could have died and I would have cheered. I won't be looking for anymore in this series. Including the first book.


    17. UghI really wanted to like this book butwell, it was only ok. I rolled my eyes throughout reading it. I felt the story was forced and it didn't flow very well. I like to connect to the characters I read about but I didn't like any of them. I slimmed through the middle and the end in hopes to quickly finish and never open it again.


    18. This book ius awsome!!!!!!!!I really think girls who have bad relationships with their sisters should read this because it might help[ them become friends right away. If not, in one week.=:]bye!!!




    19. It was alright. The authors humor and tone remind me some of Christopher Moore and I appreciate it. This was fun, but it left me curious as to how she'd write other books and characters. Also, this was part two of a series, but I was able to read it without having read the first, although, there may have been a couple things I'd've understood better had I read the first.*Spoilers Coming*The mystery of what happens after we die has been solved it is of course. more work. Ghostgirl goes to Dead Ed [...]

    21. This is one of those rare books which are so bad you read them thinking they are parodies, only to later realize, that they're, in fact, just that stupid. There are so many plotholes, there isn't even a plot anymore. It's just the holes. Also, every other sentence romanticises death, as if it was a product the writer wants to sell, which is not only abolutely idiotic, but also pretty dangerous.I'm selling this book as soon as I can, I don't even want it to be near me.




    22. as i said in the first's book review, i LOVED the book cover. It's creepy yet cute, then i got idea to make it at as one of my tattoos on my left arm along with Jack Skellington.


    23. That was okIt wasn't annoying as the first one, there were some major improvements and some decent character development, but unlike the first book this one was boring.I mean, it wasn't that bad, I mean, I read it quickly, but the references besides the playlist that comes with a song per chapter, were almost gone, which were a really fun part about the first one.Maybe was an improvement, since the ones in the first one were really obvious, and some of them annoying, but I did discover music and [...]
