"A unique, mind-blowing premise and setting. Characters with authentic voice. A lovestruck but spunky heroine. Engaging, imaginative prose. This world is unique, wonderfully - though scarily - depicted, and visually mind-blowing. Lucy is a young, stubborn, brave girl, hell-bent on staying alive." Roberta R., Offbeat Y.A.
The Debut Novel from author B.C. Johnson
Dead is such a strong word…
Fifteen-year old Lucy Day falls between the gears in the machinery of the afterlife. She is murdered while on her first date, but awakens a day later, completely solid and completely whole. She has no hunger for brains, blood, or spooky hauntings, so she crosses “zombie,” “vampire,” and “ghost” off her list of re-life possibilities. But figuring out what she is becomes the least of her worries when Abraham, Lucy’s personal Grim Reaper, begins dogging her, dead-set on righting the error that dropped her back into the spongy flesh of a living girl.
Lucy must put her mangled life back together, escape re-death, and learn to control her burgeoning psychic powers while staying one step ahead of Abraham. But when she learns the devastating price of coming back from the dead, Lucy is forced to make the hardest decision of her re-life—a decision that could save her loved ones...or kill them.
Deadgirl is currently out of print, but is returning soon! It's also bringing a sequel along with it . . .
