Do you enjoy mysteries? Do you like ghosts? If you do then take a look at THE GHOSTLY GRAMMAR BOY, a YA paranormal novel by Sandra Thompson.
Synopsis from Good Reads:
For a dead guy with unfinished business, he was pretty cute.

Fiona is a completely ordinary fifteen-year-old from Canberra-at least that's what she'd like you to think. She doesn't want anyone to know her secret. She can see and touch ghosts and it's all thanks to her pesky twin sister, Ella, who happens to be dead.

Following the mysterious death of a boy from the local grammar school, Fiona navigates the perilous high school social hierarchy to investigate. With the help of Ella, Fiona uncovers a dangerous web of family secrets and betrayal, and learns more about the perplexing world of ghosts and boys. High school is hard enough without having to sort out your dead sister's love life as well.
My Review:

What if your twin sister who died when she was two, is now a teen ghost and visits you often? What if she and her ghost boyfriend suspect his twelve-year-old brother is being drugged and they ask for your help? You’d offer whatever help you could, wouldn’t you?

Author Sandra Thompson’s novel THE GHOSTLY GRAMMAR BOY, a paranormal story for young adult readers, follows fifteen-year-old Fiona, who, unlike most people, can see and talk to ghosts, as she attempts to discover who wants to kill the ghost Chris’ brother, Alan. Enter Shane, a friend of Fiona’s brother, and also a hunk who suddenly takes an interest in Fiona. To her surprise, he also can see ghosts. Soon the mystery gets more complicated, and Fiona doesn’t know whom to trust. To keep from giving away the plot, I’ll just say that Fiona finds more trouble than she ever imagined.  

The author adds twists and surprises to keep the reader guessing who and most of all why Alan’s life is in danger. I was beginning to suspect what was going on toward the end of the story, but Sandra Thompson kept the suspense and tension high so I wasn’t sure how the story would end. THE GHOSTLY GRAMMAR BOY is a fun read with good guys and bad guys, jealousy and friendship, along with danger and revenge. This is the first book in the Dusk Duo Series. I wonder what the ghosts will be up to next. This novel would make a nice addition to school libraries, perhaps to show how jealousy and revenge can drive a person to do the unthinkable.

The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review.

Happy Reading.
