After she’s murdered by a sexual predator, 18-year-old Jada Gayle must stay among the living until she finds and stops the Internet stalker who killed her. When the Afterlife Admissions Office assigns the now “transdead” Jada to a foster home back among the living, she assumes the identity of a newly-dead homeless teen and is expected to simply fit in as she hunts down her killer.

Complicating things even more, Jada discovers that an addendum to her termination agreement was inadvertently left out of her paperwork and means she now must learn to deal with normal human emotions. How can a dead girl be expected to feel anything when life had left her so empty? Then she meets Lew Stanton—captain of the chess team and computer whiz who makes her dead heart beat phantom rhythms in her chest. As if it’s not bad enough to have the hots for a nerd, Jada’s new friend Annalee likes him too.

While Jada deals with all this unwanted teenaged angst, the man who murdered her is closing in on more foolish girls. Jada thinks she has plenty of time to handle her predicament until the night she gets a terrifying message: I HAVE YOUR FRIEND.


Beginning:

When I heard the car doors unlock at the first red light I came to, I knew I had made a fatal mistake.

Page 56:

By the time I made it to chemistry class, I was floating on an Annalee-powered magic carpet, my face plastered with a goofy smile I couldn’t have hidden if I’d wanted to. And I didn’t.

Thoughts:

If I remember correctly, I got this book as a kindle freebie. It sounds really interesting and it’s got lots of positive reviews. I’m excited to read this book sometime soon.


What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Reading!
