Dark Storm by Sarah Singleton
Goodreads synopsis:
Ellie is staying with her maternal grandparents for the summer, while her recently bereaved dad takes off on holiday with his new girlfriend. Upset by his apparent callousness, missing her mother, and jealous for her dad's attention, she begins to spiral into depression. Her grandparents suggest she joins a local theatre group, to meet people her own age and get away from the dark thoughts that threaten to engulf her. But then she gets roped into a seance at the theatre, and is the only one who actually sees a real ghost. Now a spirit is contacting her from beyond the grave - and as the dead boy's story unfolds, Ellie finds herself falling in love with him. But if she solves his mystery and helps release his soul, will he be lost to her forever?


I've heard some fantastic things being said about this one already, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like. It sounds as though there are some really great, and strong characters in this novel, which always makes a better read, in my humble opinion.
I also like the idea of a 'love that can never be' between a girl and a ghost - I'd be really interested to see how this would work.
It's definitely one I will be keeping my beady eyes open for!
