Joy’s new dress has a secret – one with a little supernatural history, one that’s a little more than she expected.

It all starts one ordinary afternoon, as seventeen-year-old Joy tries on some thrift-store clothes her grandmother gave her. The little white dress fits perfectly. Trouble is, now it won’t leave her alone. Soon Joy is swept up in an extraordinary journey to help a ghost complete some unfinished business.

If only that didn’t involve Joy driving through dangerous intersections...

Or calling up her high-school crush, Nick...

Or getting stuck at a cemetery after dark.

Haunting Joy is a paranormal YA book that tells us the story 
Will Joy accept this ghostly challenge to be "more"? And just how far will she go to uncover the truth?



*I received this book for free in exchange for a honest review*

Haunting Joy is a paranormal YA book that tells us the story of a young girl that is given a beautiful white dress but she starts to be haunted by the previous owner of the dress.

Pros:

-The concept: I love when stories have haunted personal items.

-The romance: It was not rushed; Nick and Joy are taking their time no need to say I love you in the first book.

-How the author portrayed the characters feelings especially the negative ones was very realistic.

Cons:

-The Haunting: it didn’t feel real; one second Joy had on the dress felt something strange and she just decided the dress was haunted.

-Many characters were useless to the story.

-The Novel lost my interest several times



Overall
This book felt more like a novella than an actual novel; it dragged for me most of the time. Not my favorite book but I would recommended to people who are looking for a fast and easy read

Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5
