About the book:

Till death

Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were in love. They were destined to be together forever.

Do

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.

Us

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.

Part

But things aren’t going according to Jana’s plan. So Jana decides to do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true—no matter what rules she has to break.

About the Author:

Randy Russell believes in ghosts. He conducts an annual ghost seminar for the State of North Carolina and can be found most summers sharing true ghost stories at visitor centers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He wrote Dead Rules because he believes ghosts should be allowed to share their stories of encounters with humans. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina.

Sam’s Review:

A good girl goes bad in a desperate attempt to get her boyfriend back in Randy Russell’s Dead Rules. Jana Webster has died. She’s now at Dead School, and one of the “risers”.

Risers are what dead people start as. You misbehave though, and you’re on your way to being a Slider, someone who’s a ghost, but at the same time they aren’t. In other words, they can materialize, be seen by the living, and interact with things in the living world, which Risers and Grays (suicidals) can’t do.

Jana needs to become a Slider if she wants to get her boyfriend, Michael Hynes, back. She has a plan to kill him so that he can be with her forever. She’s incomplete without him, and he’s incomplete without her, or so she thought.

I have several things to say about this book, the top one being, “Holy fudge! This girl’s crazier than I am!” Other than that, I enjoyed this. I even read it while playing Minecraft. That’s saying something considering how large my attention span is (probably about the length of my hand.). In fact, most of my Minecraft time was spent reading the book. There was very little swearing, but this is definitely for young adult readers.

The genre is paranormal, the characters are fun, and I enjoyed the plot.
