Life was pleasantly normal for Gala Rhyce—that is, until her mom moved the family to Flagler Beach, Florida. Now—despite the palm trees, ocean breezes, and cute surfer guys—Gala is miserable…until she meets Trista. Trista makes a great friend, except for one thing: she’s a ghost.

The girls learn to communicate, and through Gala, Trista finds a way to experience the world again. As Gala’s romance with a heartthrob poet begins to bloom, her unlikely friendship with Trista continues—until the ghost wants more than Gala can give, and things start to go horribly wrong.

Filled with horror, romance, and humor, Food for a Hungry Ghost is about friendship, trust, jealousy, and boundaries that get pushed too far.

How much can Gala endure? Will she survive the clutches of the Hungry Ghost?


Food For A Hungry Ghost was a fantastic book. Gala the main character was happy until her family moved. Now she is lonely,miserable and doesn’t know anyone. That is until she befriends Trista who happens to be a ghost.
Trista seemed to manage to put Gala on a guilt trip if she refused to do anything so Gala would give in.

The book was quick, only 75 pages, it was captivating, it kept me gripped. With humour which made me laugh, romance and horror but not too horrific so definitely suitable to the young adult audience. I would say this would be a great book for tween’s but also adults will enjoy it too.

5 stars must read
