You ever get killed on your first date? You ever
wake up the next day as if nothing ever happened?
Hmmm... Just me? --Lucy Day
Newport, Rhode Island (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
The book has been released simultaneously in traditional paperback and e-book formats and is available at the publisher’s website at http://www.coolwellpress.com as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Dead is such a strong word...
“To hell with the script. I wasn't going to die like a chump, especially not while looking cute. I took a step forward, and he stepped back again. I gave him a triumphant smile. It didn't last long. His friends arrived and made a line to block me in.
I balled my fists white, and decided that the first one to step forward was going to regret it.”
Fifteen-year old Lucy Day falls between the gears in the machinery of the afterlife. She is murdered, but awakens a day later, completely solid and whole. She has no hunger for brains, blood, or haunting, so she crosses “zombie,” “vampire,” and “ghost” off her list of re-life possibilities. But figuring out what she is becomes the least of her worries when Abraham, Lucy’s personal Grim Reaper, begins dogging her, dead-set on righting the error that dropped her back into the spongy flesh of a living girl.
Lucy must put her mangled life back together, escape re-death, and learn to control her burgeoning psychic powers while staying one step ahead of Abraham. But when she learns the devastating price of coming back from the dead, Lucy is forced to make the hardest decision of her re-life—a decision that could save her loved ones...or kill them.
"Deadgirl is the hatching of all the eggs laid in my brain by Buffy the Vampire Slayer and young adult stories like it,” says Johnson. “There's something extremely strong and yet totally vulnerable about a teenage girl who doesn't take crap having to deal with the worst the supernatural world has to offer. I'm happy to toss Deadgirl's protagonist, Lucy Day, out into the world. Judging by what I know of her, she'll do fine."
