Description

Middle school is a life and death experience for Annabel Craven, a girl able to communicate with the spirit world with her phone. From the author of I TEXT DEAD PEOPLE comes the second novel in the Dead Serious series!
 
All Annabel Craven wants is to be normal. But that’s hard to do when ghosts keep texting her. And keeping her secret from her nosy new stepsister isn’t going to be easy.

When a ghost girl named Harper begs Anna to help her rejoin the living, Anna warns her that it’s impossible. Once you’re dead, you can’t just start living again . . . or can you?

Includes morbidly-cute black-and-white illustrations!

"Goosebumps lite, featuring mean girls, machinations, and cell phones with unusual apps." --Booklist
