Format: Paperback
Another reviewer put it well, i think, in saying it was a 'ghost of Malorie Blackman's better books.' It isn't great really; even avid Blackman fans like myself, who find themselves glued to jewels like the Noughts and Crosses series, and 'Thief!' will be disappointed in this anaemic read from an author who has produced much better. The story slacks at times; the characters are not sympathetic and Blackman's attempt to bring an adolescent issue into the plot (in the shape of Nova's eating disorder), though valiant, is largely unsuccessful. I wouldn't really recommend it, although if you have read all her other books maybe you should read this one too. But my advice is get it from the library, and save buying the book for passionate, intense works of near-genius like 'Hacker' 'Noughts and Crosses' 'Knife Edge' 'Checkmate' or 'Thief!'
Frankly, if you're a Blackman fan, this second-rater should be well down your list.

i noticed that alot of the other reviews for this book are quite negative. This surprised me because it is such a brilliant book, one of malorie blackmans finest.
The plot is superb and very believable. This book is emotional at certain points and hard to put down. i would definitely recommend it.

i couldnt believe it when i saw how many negative comments there were for this book. it is a superb read and i recommend it to readers aged12+. it is a touching story of a girl called nova who feels that she is not good enough. she then meets a ghost and learns all about him and the mistakes he made in the past. shelearns that he cannot leave the hotel so nova makes it her mission to help. but as the knows two deadly secrets it makes it quite hard.
this is a thrilling and exciting read with unexpected twists. it one of the only books i have read by malory blackman and has certainly left me wanting more!! an enjoyable read!!!

This book is very good - possibly one of malorie blackman's best. The plot is very good and beleivable even though it contains a ghost! This book is very emotional and you get drawn in to the world of Nova and her family. Well worth buying

I really loved this book!
It really sums up the future of dying and the perils of being bulimic.
Malorie Blackman, you are one of the few people who are that amazing at writing!

this book is interesting. Nova is not your typical perfect heroine as she has her own problems. The whole plot unwinds in an unexpected way and took me totally by surprise. It was not the best book I have ever read but one of Blackmans finest!

Malorie Blackman is a fantastic auther, and has written many great books but this is a dissapointment. It was not bad, and the story was original, but it had no gripping suspence, few jokes, was very predictable, and was basically, boring. I did not stay up till who knows what time at night to finish it, as I had with Noughts and Crosses and Hacker.
So, in conclusion, not one of her best books, but a light read if you're bored.
