Review: Girl Steals Guy by Kelly Green

Publication Date: 11-21-2011
Publisher: Backlit Fictions
Pages: 62
Format: E-book
Source: Author
Challenge: N/A

Goodreads Summary:
As Abby has learned, she is now a Shadow, sent to inhabit the lives of strangers in trouble.  Dropped into the life of a gorgeous senior with a heartbroken best friend, Abby is instructed to "reunite the lovers" by her cute but maddening Guardian, a 19th century ghostly teenager named Will.  Now Abby must navigate high school keg parties, football games and power couples, only to discover that love and revenge are sometimes that same thing.


This is the second installment of Kelly Green’s Abby Grace mystery series.  Abby Grace basically lives her life as a spirit.  She ends up in the bodies of other people for a short time to help them get through a difficult time.  This time, she is trying to figure out how to help a best friend help her own best friend through a break-up.  Abby Grace still has her Guardian around her who tries to make sure she is on the right path when it comes to providing some help.  It turns out that this time Abby’s job is a little more difficult, and a little more in depth. 

Once again, this was another good short story.  It’s about 60 pages long and an easy engaging read.  I wish we could learn more about the characters, but there doesn’t seem to be enough time for that.  I enjoy the quick read when I’m looking for something to take me out of a reading slump, but it left me hoping for more.  I wanted to get more in depth and learn more about the characters and the plot-line, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen.  It was definitely a good story, but I think it could have been better if expanded upon.
