But Jana's destiny was fatally flawed. And now she's in Dead School, where Mars Dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom, with his beguiling blue eyes, mysterious smile, and irresistibly warm touch.
Michael and Jana were incomplete without each other. There was no room for Mars in Jana's life—or death—story. Jana was sure Michael would rush to her side soon.

I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
And if I should die before I awake,
I pray the popular attend my wake.
Charlotte Usher feels practically invisible at school, and then one day she really is invisible. Even worse: she's dead. And all because she choked on a gummy bear. But being dead doesn't stop Charlotte from wanting to be popular; it just makes her more creative about achieving her goal.
If you thought high school was a matter of life or death, wait till you see just how true that is. In this satirical, yet heartfelt novel, Hurley explores the invisibility we all feel at some times and the lengths we'll go to be seen

I love the old'y feel to these books, its obvious all the stories are set in a time before mobiles and modern technology and I think it adds to the scary factor. Even if younger readers don't get some of the references to older things I think it might add to the story as its more of the unknown. I like the shift back in time slightly in these books and it makes me think of all the things that people don't do as much any more which they should, like read made up stories around fires!

I do think this is one you have to try before you make your mind up with. I would recommend it to anyone because as I say I think the time I was trying to read it didn't help much with my dislike of it. I am going to try it again but only once I've got a proper ereader or if I can get it in paperback.
