Read full description of the books:
My Summary: Agnes, Cecelia, and Lucy are destined to be saints and martyrs - or so they've been told. Now, with Sebastian gone, they'll have to rely on each other more than ever in order to do as Sebastian wanted and perform the miracles they've been entrusted with. But with him gone, it's harder than ever to believe in themselves, their faith, and their mission ... and time may be running out.
My Thoughts: Having read the first novel in the series, I knew that the second was going to be a wild ride. There's nothing worse than a sequel that doesn't live up to the first in the series, right?
I loved the dark, creepy feeling of the group hunting the girls. The installment definitely upped the ante of the series (even if I did miss Sebastian). I loved the atmosphere of the novel, and I felt like the setting fit the story perfectly - who knew Brooklyn could be so creepy?
The author's signature dark humour really made it easy to connect with the girls, and the characters were written perfectly: you felt their struggle to accept their destinies, and you watched them come to terms with knowing that they were no longer just normal teens.
Final Thoughts: Having finished this novel in one sitting, I can say without a doubt that anyone who enjoyed the first installment will devour this one. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys paranormal YA with a twist.

Praise for "ghostgirl":
Instant New York Times bestseller.
Instant International bestseller.
"Tim Burton and Edgar Allan Poe devotees will die for this fantastic, phantasmal read."
– School Library Journal (STARRED review)
"[Hurley] beats out witty teen-speak like a punk-band drummer, keeping the narrative fast-paced and fun yet thought-provokingly heartwarming. Goofy, ghastly, intelligent, electrifying."
– Kirkus Reviews (STARRED review)
"Readers with a taste for black humor and satire will feast on Hurley’s crisp, wise dialogue. Anticipate a well deserved cult following."
– VOYA (STARRED review)
"Glittering comedy, a prime exemplar of what might be called demento mori, a growing subgenre of satire about teens who will not or cannot die."
– Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)
"Harry Potter's epic battles against dark forces of evil are nothing compared to Charlotte Usher's struggles with an even more fearsome foe -- high school."
"Offers the answer to the age old question: Who would come to my funeral? And gives fantasy fulfillment for anyone who wanted to be someone else for a day."
– San Francisco Chronicle
"Written with deadpan wit… this is a ‘Wonderful Life’-like tale."
– New York Post
"A sincere (and humorous) exploration of how we all feel invisible at one time or another… a perfect read."
