From the Publisher:
Charlotte Usher, a.k.a. ghostgirl, discovers that the afterlife isn't quite what she expected when she's forced to intern at a hotline for troubled teens. She may be dead, but the phone lines sure aren't. So, when duty calls, Charlotte has to take the risk of a lifetime--or call it quits for good.

Praise for ghostgirl:

* Polished dark-and-deadpan humor, it's a natural fit with Gen Y, too."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

* "[Tonya] beats out witty teen-speak like a punk-band drummer, keeping the narrative fast-paced and fun yet thought-provokingly heartwarming. Goofy, ghastly, intelligent, electrifying."--Kirkus (starred review)

*"Tim Burton and Edgar Allan Poe devotees will die for this fantastic, phantasmal read."--School Library Journal (starred review)

* "Readers with a taste for black humor and satire will feast on Hurley's crisp, wise dialogue. Anticipate a well deserved cult following." --VOYA (starred review)


Annotation:
Charlotte Usher's invisibility at Hawthorne High is complete when she chokes to death on, of all things, a gummy bear. Banished to Deadiquette school with a bunch of other dead teens, Charlotte remains determined to be known at her old school no matter what. Filled with wit, panache, and deadpan humor, this young adult novel will be popular with fans of SUCK IT UP and GENERATION DEAD.

Praise

"Plotlines raise the stakes, putting Hurley's consistent wit to the service of classic themes about claiming identity." 7/14/2008
