24991337Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut.

The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton.

But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

I don't read many books that are set in the 'pass' because most of the one I've read seem to be almost the same. But Lately, I've been able to find more and more books set in the past that I really enjoy. (That stand out!) But 'The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts' was one that I had a blast reading. Ghosts scare me but I found that this author balanced the leave of ghosts with past life, family/friends, mystery, and college life into a good pacing story.

Even though I found the characters strong, (The push and pull between Kat and Evan is also a major plus in this book. ) I think, personally, the plot and story its self is the best part of this book. I like how the 'ghost system' works, it plays a huge rule in this book and I think it makes it better with that as a rule that Kat has to follow. The way they travel in the past by the magic portal, how family plays into this story and so much more things like that just make this story a great read!

Love, curses, and magic make this book an enjoyable page-turner.
