Six Feet Under meets Pushing Daisies in this quirky, heartfelt story about two teens who are granted extra time to resolve what was left unfinished after one of them suddenly dies.

A good friend will bury your body, a best friend will dig you back up.

Dino doesn’t mind spending time with the dead. His parents own a funeral home, and death is literally the family business. He’s just not used to them talking back. Until Dino’s ex-best friend July dies suddenly—and then comes back to life. Except not exactly. Somehow July is not quite alive, and not quite dead.

As Dino and July attempt to figure out what’s happening, they must also confront why and how their friendship ended so badly, and what they have left to understand about themselves, each other, and all those grand mysteries of life.

Critically acclaimed author Shaun Hutchinson delivers another wholly unique novel blending the real and surreal while reminding all of us what it is to love someone through and around our faults.


Shaun Hutchinson is a writer and geek living in sunny South Florida. He grew up in Florida and has only lived outside the Sunshine State twice in his life. Shaun loves geeking out on tech and sci-fi, and worships at the altar of Joss Whedon. He's fully prepared for the zombie apocalypse.

REVIEW:
What an incredible story of friendship and love.
I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book. Not the biggest ghost story/zombie lover, but let me tell you how well this story was written. You know when you're younger, and you get a boyfriend or girlfriend and they become your world. Your friends always take a back seat, so-to-speak. It always happens, not purposely, but still.  Now imagine if that friend of yours died suddenly. You'd be so stunned at how to deal, so many unsaid things.
Well, this story does that with an unusual twist. 
That twist actually turned out to be good too! I devoured this book, 'cause I had to know what was going to happen. Would they get a resolution? 
Every question was answered and it is now one of my favorites from this author!
On a side note, I had no idea I was reading a LGBTQ book during Pride month and that made me smile too! Love Is Love!


5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
