#BookReview for Dead School by Laura Gia West

Synopsis: There is no death... only a change in worlds 

It is Valentine's Day at John Hopkin's High, and the disgruntled Tina Crocker is having the best day of her life as she performs at the school's largest talent show. She kills it. Literally. The moment she steps off stage: Tina Crocker croaks and ends up in... Dead School.

Entering a grotesque new world, she is greeted by a furious, hair-wobbling mentor who dispels her into the Spirit Guide division. But, unlike the rest of her class, she becomes the school's first Spirit Guide's Assistant while paired with the biggest floozy in the afterworld. Together, they are assigned to guide a living loser, in order to pass their course.

However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel... a rather long tunnel. Tina also meets a mysterious artist from the Suicide division, Alexei. And, somehow, their different breeds of awkward strangely click. As finals approach, Tina's focus has to switch or else a miserable reincarnated life awaits. Yeah, rest in peace, my ass...

My Review: Well what can I say about this one?  It had potential but just didn't use it.  For me, this one failed to give me characters that I could care about.  The Dead School itself was great.  I really just wanted more from the characters themselves.  The story was confusing in parts and at 55% I just had to call it quits. This one was just so not for me. 

"[It] even caused me to laugh out loud a few times; that is embarrassing in public places... an explosive comedy with a fanciful spin on afterlife." -Authors Reading
