Hello Folks, I’m Angie Sandro and I am the blog host of Oh, the Things I’ve Learned. Please help me welcome the book cast of Neverlove by Angela Brown, and Givin’ Up The Ghost by Gwen Gardner.

Today we’re showcasing fashion styles and introducing some of the cast from these two young adult paranormal novels. First, reach beneath your seats and put on the special ghost-gander glasses. You’re not going to want to miss this.

First up is Franny Bishop, from Givin’ Up The Ghost.

 *Angie shuffles to the first style index card and begins to read as Franny glides stately down the runway*

Franny is a Victorian-aged ghost and former brothel owner. She enjoys the modern day medieval village where she resides in a Victorian-style home with the Eady family. She is dressed in a scarlet, off-the-shoulder gown with petticoats underneath, forming a bell-shaped skirt. Her midnight-black hair is woven into an intricate bun and contrasts nicely against the scarlet. Her corset cinches her waist to the size of a Barbie doll, and enhances her considerable bosom, which overflows the bodice of her plunging neckline.

*Franny nods majestically to the crowd as she makes her turn and completes her round of the runway*

*Angie shuffles to the next style index card*

Next on the runway is Pam from Neverlove. Pam is a Harvestor and currently works for the Devourer. She enjoys fighting in the Withers and stealing souls. Today Pam is wearing skin-deep beauty, beneath skin-tight black leather from neck to steel-toed boots. Her blonde hair is a striking contrast to her black costume. The ensemble is complete with black mask, whip hanging from her hip, and a small pouch attached to her wrist.

*Angie shuffles to the next style index card*

Again from Neverlove is Abigail Bishop - no relation to Franny. Abby is wearing a red turtleneck and jeans beneath a red cloak. Abby’s warm, milk-coffee toned skin is set off by her hazel green-speckled eyes and high cheek bones in a heart-shaped face. And what’s this...?

*Reaching the end of the run, Abby snaps her fingers and holds out her hands. The audience oohs and ahhs at the ball of fire nestled in her palms. Another snap, and the fire is gone*

Very impressive Abby, very impressive.

*Angie flips to the next style card and looks confused, flipping from front to back. She shrugs*

Next is Indigo Eady from Givin’ Up The Ghost. She’s wearing jeans with a pink sweat shirt, and uh, hmmm. Bunny slippers. Yes, it says bunny slippers, and, yes. There - you can see the six inch ears sticking up. Uh, Indigo is also wearing a black, rather messy braid, has midnight blue eyes which contrasts nicely with, uh, stuff she’s wearing, and...

*Indigo walks red-faced and awkwardly down the runway, makes her turn and dashes toward the stage curtain*

 ...she speaks to ghosts, reads energy and enjoys...running.

I guess Indigo’s a little shy or something.

So, you’ve seen the stars and their styles.

Which one is your favorite?

Neverlove - For Abigail and Basil, there is a choice they both fear making. Duty or love? There can be only one.

Givin' Up The Ghost - Indigo Eady's life erupts into mischief and mayhem when a ghost enters her teen abnormal life demanding answers for his death.
