Library Loot (5)

One one addition to my library book pile this week: Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley. I'm about half-way through it now. I bumped it to the top of the pile as there's a reservation on it and I have the only copy. It's a hardback and it's about the width of a paperback but about 50% taller than a paperback. Very unusual.

Synopsis from
It's the first day of the rest of Charlotte's life. She isn't going to be invisible anymore. And she's not going to stop at just getting noticed, she's determined that she'll be envied! Much to Charlotte's surprise her plan actually seems to be working: Petula, the most popular girl at school has finally acknowledged her existence and her lab partner for the rest of the term is none other than Damen Dylan, school heart-throb and object of Charlotte's desire. It's only a matter of time before she's accepted into their elite circle...that is until, in her excitement, Charlotte chokes to death on a gummy bear.

So, ok, it's the first day of the rest of Charlotte's death - why should that change her plans?
