Just because we were vain LAST week, doesn’t mean we can’t be vain THIS week too!
These books are pretty, popular and oh so perfect!
Get some superficial in yuh, boys and girls!
Because who ever said too much ego in a book relationship was a BAD thing?!
I sure didn’t.

But it isn’t until Helen is haunting a high school English teacher’s class that she is finally noticed. By a boy who is alive, and can see her.
Usually these paranormal ghost romances are flipped, where the girl is living and the boy is dead. So I already love the idea of the roles being switched.
