Pop quiz: What would you do if you had to solve your own murder to get anywhere in death? Maybe if I hadn't slept through my alarm, slammed into Kristin-my high school's reigning mean girl-or stepped in a puddle, destroying my mom's new suede DVF boots (which I borrowed without asking), I wouldn't have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I wouldn't have been pushed in front of that arriving train. But I did, and I was. When I came to, I was informed by a group of girls that I'm dead. And that because I died under mysterious circumstances, I can't pass straight over to the Other Side. But at least I'm not alone. Meet the Dead Girls Detective Agency: Nancy, Lorna, and Tess-not to mention Edison, the really cute if slightly hostile dead boy. Apparently, the only way out of this limbo is to figure out who killed me, or I'll have to spend eternity playing Nancy Drew. Considering I was fairly invisible in life, who could hate me enough to want me dead? And what if my murderer is someone I never would have suspected?

I grew up reading Nancy Drew stories. It's nice that it's translated into a new genre, and one that teens today would want to read!

This was one of the best books I've read! I really enjoyed it and I recommend this for people who likes a supernatural romantic book. I hope there is a sequel to this amazing book. (:

The book begins with a girl named Charlotte and her life as a normal teenager, well until she dies after being pushed of a train platform. The events then begin with her being greeted by two girls who are about her age. As they yell her name and she wakes up, Charlotte doesn't remember much of anything and actually thinks she is dreaming. After some time with the girls. One girl informs her that she is dead and they must find her murderer. The events that come after are sad, surprising and easy relate to. What would you do if you had only 2 hours left on this earth?
