“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 thinks life has finally begun when she is noticed by the three coolest girls in the school. For once she’s in on the jokes and sitting at the right table, and she is willing to do whatever it takes to be part of their clique.

But how much will it take? And after her life with the popular crowd starts to feel as cruel as death, what will she decide to do about it?

Chilling, this is a new kind of ghost story—one that’s as terrifying as today’s headlines.
