IT’S A WONDERFUL DEATH, by Sara J. Schmitt

death

The story: Mean girl RJ Jones isn’t supposed to be dead–the Grim Reaper got her by accident. You’d think it’d be easy to put her back into real life, but not so much. Eventually a Tribunal decides that she’ll have to pass a series of tests to demonstrate that, if allowed to go back, she’d ultimately follow a better path that would improve the world. Now it’s up to RJ–who’s going to end up with a lot more (and a lot less) that she expected.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Ever wonder what happens to the mean girls when they die?  RJ never did–but now she’s finding out anyway.  It is really too late to fix what she’s done?  RJ is a sassy, smart narrator and the book has a really unexpected twist at the end.  A fun read for girls!
