5.0 out of 5 stars Despair, 8 July 2006
You know critics always write things like "you'll feel like your really there" and "you experience the same emotions", its crap, reading this book there is no way you can feel how sh feels, you can feel horrow, disgust, betrayed, sad, mortified and so on and so on but you can never feel how Kathy feels.

I could not put this book down, my mother read it, handed it to me and i couldnt stop reading, i will put my hand up and say several times i cried, once even on the bus. It is horrid to think that this could happen to anyone in this world, it is also disgusting that those who have the power to stop it merely turn there heads. This book is brilliant and deserves to be read by everyone and recognized for the sheer bravery it took to be written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Girl, 23 May 2006
Im 19 years old and in my life have read many different kinds of books, from mills and boon to stephen king but no book has ever gripped me like Hayden's ghost girl.

I havent read any of her other books i just picked it up one day and thought it sounded good, i was amazed at how gripping it was and how emotionally involved you get in the evolution of the story, and then to find out its a true story hits you all over again.

Fantastic book, i am definitely going to have to collect her other books.
