Now, I understand that most teen books I have thus far read have neglectful parents who are practically non-existent in the text. Why is that stupid house so important and why the crap do the ghost kids still go to the living school, side by side their fleshy counterparts?

But her new dead classmates aren’t liking Charlotte’s plans too much and are making it incredibly hard for her to get anything done. Just seeing it on the shelf at the store made me want to buy it.
