The Book That Stopped Me in My Tracks at Barnes and Noble!

My daughter and I went to Barnes and Noble the other day.  Scary place for both of us to go together!

I was walking down one of the YA aisles, and the cover of this book literally stopped me in my tracks!

First I LOVE the cover.  I just love the scroll work with the vines and flowers.
And then that title! That's what stopped me.  It totally grabbed me and made me laugh.

About the book:

You can’t block the dead. 
Annabel Craven hopes she’ll fit in—maybe even be popular—at the Academy. She’s worried she’ll stay friendless and phoneless (it’s true). But when she finds a mysterious phone in the woods near the cemetery, one of her problems is solved . . . and another one is just beginning. 

Someone won’t stop texting her. And that someone seems . . . dead. How is Annabel supposed to make friends when her phone keeps blowing up with messages from the afterlife? And what will happen if she doesn’t text back?

“Scary—but not too scary.”--SLJ

“Good, ghostly fun.”—Kirkus Reviews 


  1. Love the title. Very catchy. Sounds like a fun story.

  2. Love this line "The only way to get rid of a ghost is to answer her texts," and that cover is adorable and funny. Very catchy! Gonna add it to the TBR

  3. This looks like a cute one. I think the kiddies will love it.
