Deadgirl by B.C. Johnson

Fifteen-year-old Lucy Day falls between the gears in the machinery of the afterlife. She is murdered while on her first date, but awakens a day later, completely solid and completely whole. She has no hunger for brains, blood, or haunting, so she crosses “zombie,” “vampire,” and “ghost” off her list of re-life possibilities. But figuring out what she is becomes the least of her worries when Abraham, Lucy’s personal Grim Reaper, begins dogging her, dead-set on righting the error that dropped her back into the spongy flesh of a living girl.

Lucy must put her mangled life back together, escape re-death, and learn to control her burgeoning psychic powers while staying one step ahead of Abraham. But when she learns the devastating price of coming back from the dead, Lucy is forced to make the hardest decision of her re-life—a decision that could save her loved ones...or kill them

Short Review:
Overall I did find it quite an enjoyable read, the Author creatively weaves the world of the paranormal in a way we haven't seen much of and that is what intrigued me most about this book. Not only that but the ending leaves you dumbfounded with your mouth hanging open because you want to know what will happen next, especially when Lucy finds out someone close to her is a "freak" just like her.

I would definitely recommend this to those who are looking for something new in the Paranormal Genre. I give Deadgirl 3.5 out of 5 bats.
