Ghost of a Chance: Review

by Laura Peyton Roberts


Why is love so complicated?

"Melissa Soul is looking forward to a hot California summer. Her goals are basic....
1. Avoid babysitting
2. hang out at the mall/beach/wherever with her best friend Chloe
3. have a real conversation with Chloe's gorgeous brother, Chaz.

"But all that changes fast when Melissa meets James. He's funny. Mysterious. And very cute. The thing is... he's a ghost. and he's haunting Chloe's mansion.

" Is falling for a ghost crazy? maybe. But James is so real, Melissa almost forgets he's not human. She falls for him so hard that soon everything else slips away... including the possibility that James might be in love with Chloe.

What a tangle web we weave when it comes to teenage love! Or any love for that matter!

Melissa seems like an endearing girl and I found myself relating to her in some aspects of her life, but the story line for me was way to rushed. I didn't feel like there was enough time to connect with the main characters in this story, or give the concept of the story line a chance to shine. For me it was just to rushed, and not in the terms of it just being a fast read. The story line was there, but it was missing so much for me.

I am giving Ghost of a Chance 3 stars and it falls into these reading challenges...
