Absent by Katie Williams

A short bit about the book from it's goodreads pageForever is a long time to be stuck in high school.

Seventeen-year-old Paige is dead, the victim of a freak fall from the roof during Physics class. Now she’s a ghost, permanently bound to the grounds of her high school. It isn’t all bad, she can
find out everyone’s secrets, which can be amusing—for a while.  But then Paige hears something that isn’t amusing at all: the rumor spread by the most popular girl at school that her death wasn’t an accident—that she supposedly jumped on purpose.  Paige is desperate to stop the gossip, but what can a ghost do?  Then Paige discovers something amazing. She can possess living people when they think of her, and she can make them do almost anything. Maybe, just maybe, she can get inside the girl
who’s responsible for the stories. . . and have a little fun turning the tables while she’s at it.

Katie Williams’s second novel is a suspenseful page-turner full of eerie wit and a touch of the otherworldly.


My Take

This book was a great ride.  Paige is dead, sadly so.  She's a great lead character.  The truth reveled at the end was shocking.  I loved this book.  It wasn't predictable and that's one of the things that I loved.  Paige is full of wit and humor.  I would definitely recommend this book and am giving it 5 ghostly kisses!!
