Title: Teen Spirit
Author: Francesca Lia Block
Date of Publication: February 4th, 2014
After Julie’s grandmother passes away, she is forced to move across town to the not-so-fancy end of Beverly Hills and start over at a new school. The only silver lining to the perpetual dark cloud that seems to be following her? Clark—a die-hard fan of Buffy and all things Joss Whedon, who is just as awkward and damaged as she is. Her kindred spirit.
When the two try to contact Julie’s grandmother with a Ouija board, they make contact with a different spirit altogether. The real kind. And this ghost will do whatever it takes to come back to the world of the living.
I was pretty stoked to read this book when my friend gave it to me. I hadn’t heard of it, and you know what? It was awesome! Bring on the Ouija boards!
What I loved best about this book was it had quirkiness, weirdness, and fun times! Julie was likable and frustrating, yet cool, all in the same package. Clark was so cute and he seriously reminded me of Duckie from Pretty in Pink!
Overall, this is a fun little mystery that still had some good emotional aspects. The writing was great and I can’t wait to read more from the author! This one will have a permanent spot on my bookshelf!
