When the mysterious stranger shows up at Nova's parents' hotel, she thinks her luck has changed - until she realizes she's the only one who can see him. Liam explains he's been here a long time. And he can never leave, no matter how hard he tries. Soon, Nova begins to piece his tragic story together.
Moving to the country because her parents want to run an old hotel is not 11-year-old Nova's idea of fun. But meeting the hotel's resident ghost makes it a bit more bearable for Nova, especially as he's a gorgeous teenage boy. Originally published: London: Doubleday, 2002
This was a quick easy read, and I quite enjoyed it, but still felt it didn't live up to Blackman's hype. I really must read Noughts & Crosses. Dead Gorgeous did keep me engaged, and kept me guessing on several scores. At one point I was almost convinced that ALL the guests were ghosts! I had my doubts about Miss Dawn and Miss Eve even at the end. Curiously enough, I couldn't find the edition I read listed. The ISBN matches the cover above, but the cover of the one I read was very different. In my opinion, it was better.
