'Scarlett Dedd' by Cathy Brett

Book description:

In a mix of wry humor, suspense and the macabre, with graphic illustrations by the author, this young adult novel offers a unique perspective on the afterlife and what it means to be a ghost.

Meet Scarlett Dedd. Scarlett is absolutely mortified (in more ways than one) to discover that she's accidentally killed herself trying to get out of a school trip. Even worse, she's taken her entire family with her! Left in limbo, bored to death, and fearing her friendless state is terminal, an ominous idea pops into Scarlett's head. Can Scarlett really execute her grim plan? Or will it turn out to be a fatal and very messy mistake?

Scarlett Dedd blends humor with macabre horror in a graphic novel format. Now that she and her family are dead, only the other undead can see them. She is very lonely without her friends and can only have contact with them again if she kills them. Older teens will learn some important lessons within this book!
