About this deal

I hope there are others like this coming, but perhaps it would be better if the book remains a one off and not one of many, it has a stand-alone quality that I particularly like.

The characters felt shallow and inconsistent, there were lapses in time during paragraphs that were unclear and made the story incredibly difficult to follow, and please don’t get me started on the only Hispanic character’s name being Nacho. I was looking for a fun read to fill the gap between more intense and in-depth series that I normally read and I came across this book.

Shawn would be the first to tell you, being a husband and father is by far the wildest and most rewarding part of life. To my disappointment, the ghosts total interactions could probably fit three, maybe four pages total!

given the Scooby Doo trope, the characters could have easily avoided the whole ending had the multi-million dollar business tycoon asked himself “does this situation make logical sense? When the police tell her they have no leads in the case, she decides to take matters into her own hands, turning to a ghostly friend for help. Billy and Blaze always found themselves in the middle of some crisis and, with courage and heroics, never failed to save the day. While TikTok may have helped Leigh Howard jump to the top of the charts, its reviews are keeping it there.I enjoy reading YA but there were so many times where it definitely felt like a middle aged spin on how a teenage girl would/should think and talk.

The characters are realistic and relatable, the plot is full of twists and turns, and the inclusion of ghosts adds an extra layer of intrigue. Myra (19) describes going skinny dipping in a nearby river at age 10, which really didn't add to the plot and felt weird and unnecessary. As Warner later explained in a TikTok of his own, when Swearenjin approached him, “I was just so eager to talk to anybody. You need a great takeoff, a smooth flight to the destination, and a safe and smooth ending that satisfies. There is also a typo, (the instead of they), which is a personal pet peeve of mine and probably doesn't bother other readers.The storyline was interesting, albeit a little farfetched at the end with a 16yo girl taking on an elite and elusive criminal enterprise.
