Nora Travers has spent her last few Halloweens working in a haunted house, playing witches and zombies and practically every monster in between. But she can’t always hang up her costume and take off her makeup after she gets home from work. Nora sometimes considers herself a monster of a different kind, one that many of us encountered, known as the “mean girl.” She is at the point in her life where she realizes that she was very horrible to a lot of people…and she regrets the way she treated them and feels genuine remorse for the things she did.
When horror blogger Brendan tours the haunted house she works at, she’s shocked when she realizes that he’s the geeky boy she tormented in junior high….and that he has become so hot. She’s determined to give him the scare of a lifetime so that he’ll give the haunted house a good review on his blog…until she realizes that he finds her just as attractive as she finds him.
Without divulging who she is, Nora flirts with Brendan, and he flirts right back. She finally decides that she needs to reveal who she really is…even though he might never have forgiven her.
Crazy, Sexy, Ghoulish , by G. G. Andrew, is a funny, smartly written new adult novella about the second chances we so seldom get when we grow up and realize what we could have done differently and what we can do to make up for it. And sometimes the monsters that we’re most afraid of aren’t the make-believe ones, but the ones we try to run from within ourselves.
