Publisher's Summary

Hi, I'm Alexis Delaney. I'm your average 17-year-old girl. Except I can see the dead. And talk to the dead. And push them away and, well, help them move on.

So...okay, I'm not your average 17-year-old girl.

For years I've been struggling to survive the souls still roaming around. The shitheads always seem to find me. Moving from town to town every few months never helped either. More dead just always find me. But things are changing for me now. I'm moving in with my uncle Rory and cousin Tara. I'm finally going to be able to do normal teenage stuff I've been missing out on. Right?

Well, if this one bitch of a ghost could leave me alone on campus that would be great. Especially since I haven't told my new friends about my abilities. Can you believe this? Five good-looking guys practically adopt me on my first day of school and I still think they're a bit nuts for it. Now if I can only keep my life with the dead from mixing with my normal life everything would be great. Yeah...I don't see that happening either. But I'm going to give it a shot.

Who knows? It might work.

    "Excellence"

    I really loved this story. I am not a young adult but the story still appealed to me even though it's high school aged kids as characters. I loved the paranormal mixed in with everyday struggles. It was both funny and fast paced at times. The connection between Lexi and the boys is both sweet and hysterical. The narration was great and I listened almost continuously. Couldn't put it down. Highly recommended !

    Story
    "YA Drama...."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If was more realistic..... teen boys don't really act that way. And the lead girl had no depth.


    What was most disappointing about B. L. Brunnemer’s story?

    Like I said none of it felt real. Not well written. The narrator wasn't to bad
