Wow: I Woke Up Dead at the Mall by Jody Sheehan

This post is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm waiting on:
I Woke Up Dead at the Mall

Ok this one grabbed my attention for two reasons.
1. The title! Seriously what a title!
2.  It's at the Mall of America.  I live half and hour from MOA, so that really interested me!

Release Date: March 22, 2016

When Sarah wakes up dead at the Mall of America, she learns that not only was she murdered, her killer is still on the loose. I WOKE UP DEAD AT THE MALL is a terrifically fun & voicey YA novel that tackles some of life’s – and the afterlife’s – biggest questions.  
When you’re sixteen, you have your whole life ahead of you. Unless you’re Sarah. Not to give anything away, but . . . she’s dead. Murdered, in fact. Sarah’s murder is shocking because she couldn’t be any more average. No enemies. No risky behavior. She’s just the girl on the sidelines.

It looks like her afterlife, on the other hand, will be pretty exciting. Sarah has woken up dead at the Mall of America—where the universe sends teens who are murdered—and with the help of her death coach, she must learn to move on or she could meet a fate totally worse than death: becoming a mall walker.

As she tries to finish her unfinished business alongside her fellow dead teens, Sarah falls hard for a cute boy named Nick. And she discovers an uncanny ability to haunt the living. While she has no idea who killed her, or why, someone she loves is in grave danger. Sarah can’t lose focus or she’ll be doomed to relive her final moments again and again forever. But can she live with herself if she doesn’t make her death matter?


  1. Sounds really cute and since you live that close, how can you pass it up? Thanks for sharing it.

  2. well the title alone has my attention o.o

  3. I am in a hotel in Bloomington. Maybe i will visit the dead over at MoA while I'm here. LOL! This sounds like a fun book. Interesting premise. Thanks for telling me about it.

  4. I don't think I've heard of this one before! The cover and title have me intrigued. I also like the sound of the story. :)
