You can't block the dead! The first novel in the Dead Serious series, in which a middle school girl bridges the gap between the living and the dead with her phone. 

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?

Includes morbidly-cute black-and-white illustrations!

Editorial Reviews

"With a fast-paced, plot-heavy style, this book careens between high school drama and ghostly intrigue. . . . Scary—but not too scary." --School Library Journal"Cooper writes with a light style and demonstrates keen insight into the social anxieties of middle schoolers. She occasionally includes her own whimsical line drawings that add to the humorous tone of the book. A really nice plot twist at the end should please readers. Good, ghostly fun." --Kirkus Reviews"A funny, unique premise . . . [Readers] will be glad to know that more adventures are planned for Cooper's Dead Serious series." --VOYA“Will pull in readers . . . waiting for the outcome should keep them turning pages until the end." --Booklist
