Food for a Hungry Ghost Review

Life was pleasantly normal for Gala Rhyce—that is, until her mom moved the family to Flagler Beach, Florida. Now—despite the palm trees, ocean breezes, and cute surfer guys—Gala is miserable…until she meets Trista. Trista makes a great friend, except for one thing: she's a ghost.

The girls learn to communicate, and through Gala, Trista finds a way to experience the world again. As Gala’s romance with a heartthrob poet begins to bloom, her unlikely friendship with Trista continues—until the ghost wants more than Gala can give, and things start to go horribly wrong.

Filled with horror, romance, and humor, Food for a Hungry Ghost is about friendship, trust, jealousy, and boundaries that get pushed too far.

How much can Gala endure? Will she survive the clutches of the Hungry Ghost?    
     First I want to make note that the author, Becky M Pourchot, sent me a copy of this book to review.  Second, I loved this book.  I felt like I was right there watching everything happen.  I even got a little spooked when the ghost started to make herself known. 
     I have read a few books about ghosts and this one was like none I have read before.  It had enough twists in it that it kept me guessing until the very end.  Then when it ended I was left wanting more.  I can't wait until the next one comes out. 
    The only thing negative for me was there were no chapters.  I lost my place briefly and had to read a bunch of pages to figure out where I had left. 
     If you are looking for a ghost story that will both thrill and chill you, Food for a Hungry Ghost is it.  I rate it PG.  She wrote it for 10 and up and I believe she did a great job also making it a fun read for adults.
The Author is having a "Dinner with the Dead" at Flagler Beach, FL on October 23.  In preparation for this event she is giving away copies of "Food for a Hungry Ghost" on her website between Saturday October 27 and Wednesday October 31.  Check out her website!
