Review of Haunting Joy

Haunting Joy (Haunting Joy, #1)

While YA Paranormal is not normally something that I would choose to read on my own. Its not my cup of tea. I did enjoy reading this novella. While it wasn't my favorite book I did enjoy Lena's writing style. I do think it is a quick read if a teen or young adult needs a book for a trip.  I am glad that I step out of my comfort zone to read this book. 

About the Book 
Haunting Joy (YA Paranormal Novella)

Joy’s new dress has a secret – one with a little supernatural history, one that’s a little more than she expected.

It all starts one ordinary afternoon, as seventeen-year-old Joy tries on some thrift-store clothes her grandmother gave her. The little white dress fits perfectly. Trouble is, now it won’t leave her alone. Soon Joy is swept up in an extraordinary journey to help a ghost complete some unfinished business. If only that didn't involve Joy driving through dangerous intersections...or calling up her high-school crush, Nick...or getting stuck at a cemetery after dark.

Will Joy accept this ghostly challenge to be "more"? And just how far will she go to uncover the truth?
