“Popularity, peer pressure, and a text from beyond the grave are key to Three Quarters Dead. It has ghosts, creepiness, and shivers. It also has a high school setting where students are struggling with all of the issues that teenagers face. Entertaining and discussion worthy, this is a winning combination from a master storyteller.”
— Ellen Richmond, Children's Book Cellar, Waterville, ME


Kerry is chosen by the coolest clique in school and so she thinks life has finally begun. But then it seems all over when her three friends are killed in a shocking car accident. Or are they? Only weeks after the accident, Kerry receives a text from one of the girls: We're all 3 here at my aunt's in the city. Take the 3:50 train. B there.

Exhilarating, terrifying suspense is crossed with a thought-provoking examination of peer pressure in Richard Peck's return to his contemporary teen- and ghost-story roots. This is a master author's gift to the Gossip Girl/Twilight generation: his own smart, stylish, and fun take on the paranormal.
