Book Review - Ghostgirl: Lovesick

Before she can rest in peace, Charlotte Usher must return to the tragic site of her death: High School.
On the brink of Dead Ed graduation, Charlotte and her fellow classmates learn they have one last mission to complete before gaining entrance to the much-anticipated afterlife: Observe one designated teen with an unexplained problem and help said-troubled teen by Prom.
For the life of her, Charlotte can't imagine why she has been assigned to help Damen, last year's Homecoming King and her former fatal crush. To make matters worse, her boyfriend Eric is sent to look after her best (breathing) friend Scarlet, who has since ditched her goth girl image for a girlier look that turns more heads than just her boyfriend Damen's.
Charlotte would die (again) for love. But when her only chance at an afterlife means having to face the dreaded, all-too-familiar pains of being invisible, it may be too much for her to handle. 

My Review
I was so excited to have a third part in this series and grabbed it as soon as i could. I had to know what happens to Charlotte next, and when she is so close to Graduating and moving on, she finds she has to go back, and not only does she have to go back to High School, she has to help her former crush Damon. This isn't as easy as it sounds, first she has to know what he needs help with, and when it all becomes entangled with all the other kids problems and their helpers, things can get messy.
I really enjoyed this book as much as the others in the series, if not more!
The writing again is excellent and the story is exciting, it's nice to see the characters (both dead and alive) grow, Eve is still my favourite but is more angsty in this book, she isn't sure of who she is or what she wants from life, but knows her friends are there for her (well sort of in Charlottes' case)
This book really tied up some loose ends for me from the first too books, and had a really beautiful ending. Everything is neatly tied off, but at the same time poised for a sequel, should Hurley wish to write one. (Here's hoping she does, as I can't get enough)
The artwork/illustrations are once again beautiful and the overall look of the book is gorgeous.

My Rating
I would give this book 9.5/10, you really should read it, but read the whole series, it's sooo good!
