The book was about a ghost named Jessica, who starts to show herself. One day at recess, Jessica sits next to a guy named Francis, who could see her. Even though she was a ghost, they started to bond together. Soon a bunch of people could start seeing Jessica and then Jessica is hit with the question “Why are you still on Earth?”
I liked the book because it showed how easy it is to be alone. Even though Jessica is a ghost, she can’t be seen by any humans until Francis comes along. Francis isn’t as creeped out as many people would if they see a ghost. As readers, the story could leave us thinking about how small actions could have a huge impact.
The one memorable thing was when Francis could see her. It was memorable because it was the start of a friendship bond between a ghost and a human.
