Read full description of the books:
Sometimes high school really is a matter of life or death.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
And if I should die before I awake,
I pray the popular attend my wake.
Charlotte Usher feels practically invisible at school, and then one day she really is. Even worse: she's dead. And all because of a guy and a gummy bear.
In this satirical yet heartfelt novel, Tonya Hurley explores the invisibility we all feel at times and the lengths we'll go to be seen.

Praise for "ghostgirl":
Instant New York Times bestseller.
Instant International bestseller.
"Tim Burton and Edgar Allan Poe devotees will die for this fantastic, phantasmal read."
– School Library Journal (STARRED review)
"[Hurley] 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 Reviews (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)
"Glittering comedy, a prime exemplar of what might be called demento mori, a growing subgenre of satire about teens who will not or cannot die."
– Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)
"Harry Potter's epic battles against dark forces of evil are nothing compared to Charlotte Usher's struggles with an even more fearsome foe -- high school."
"Offers the answer to the age old question: Who would come to my funeral? And gives fantasy fulfillment for anyone who wanted to be someone else for a day."
– San Francisco Chronicle
"Written with deadpan wit… this is a ‘Wonderful Life’-like tale."
– New York Post
"A sincere (and humorous) exploration of how we all feel invisible at one time or another… a perfect read."
