Review: Girl Vs. Ghost by Kate MCMurry and Marie August

Girl vs Ghost (Misdirected Magic Trilogy, #1)
Paperback, 242 pages
Published April 10th 2011 by Blazing Star Press
ISBN: 1613400004
Isabel Lindley was only doing  her friend Tripp a favor when they were doing a spell in her bedroom. She really didn't believe in magic. She certainly was surprised when a teenage boy lands on her floor. Isabel is not happy, Tripp is, even though she can't actually see him, and Isabel is the only one that can. Isabel does not want to take on the responsibility of this boy who doesn't know his name, when or how he died, and why he is tied to Isabel by a psychic chain. The only way  to get rid of him she realizes is to figure out about his life, and then he can move on. She wants him gone.
Isabel is the ordinary teenage girl. Wears t-shirts and jeans and doesn't believe in magic. I really liked her and her support for her best friend was how friends should be. Tripp was also a super likable character, she was different and a very entertaining. Marc was a mystery, it would be hard not knowing who you are, finding out you are dead and not knowing how it happened, seriously tough. I enjoyed finding out all the mystery surrounding  Marc and Isabel and Tripp experience it with him. Girl vs. Ghost was funny, and entertaining!  
The art done inside and on the cover of the book were done by one of the authors, Marie August. The pictures were definitely a a great addition to the book!5/5
I received the book for review from the authors, this is my honest opinion.
