“I have had you in class for four years. You have never backed down from a challenge yet. I‘m not saying it won‘t be hard, but you can do it.” I love Mrs. Harrison!!!! She is totally supportive of David and Jay, and does not allow any type of bullying in her classroom.

Just because Jon/Jay is gay, this doesn‘t give Tyler the right to mistreat him.

I have had enough of Tyler. He is rude, inconsiderate, and jealous. Just because he has suffered a season-ending injury, this does not mean that he has the right to say this about David, his “best friend:” “He‘s a fairy with the hots for the new kid.”

How many people have ever felt like this?

I think it‘s better to just not text people at all. The only things that‘s worse than not getting a text from someone first is sending them a text and then having them not respond. It‘s excruciating.

While I enjoyed reading this novel, I was really let down at the end. There were some unanswered questions for me; therefore, I feel like Braithwaite needs a sequel.

Based on an Irish tale, a Ghost Story will make its readers cringe, think aloud, and think twice about being in a cemetery or eating oatmeal. When reading this Irish folklore, I immediately liked Kate Culhane because she is strong, mentally and physically. She proves this when she accidentally stumbles upon a ghost's grave.
