A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend
by Emily Horner

From Emily Horner's website:

For months, Cass Meyer has heard her best friend Julia, a wannabe Broadway composer, whispering about a top-secret project. Then Julia is killed in a sudden car accident, and while Cass is still reeling from her death, Julia’s boyfriend and her other drama friends make it their mission to bring to fruition the nearly-completed secret project: a musical about an orphaned ninja princess entitled Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad.

Cass isn’t one of the drama people. She doesn’t feel at home with Julia’s drama friends, and she doesn’t see a place for her in the play. Things only get worse when she finds out that Heather Galloway, the girl who made her miserable all through middle school, has been cast as the ninja princess.

Cass can’t take a summer of swallowing her pride and painting sets, so she decides to follow her original plan for a cross-country road trip with Julia. Even if she has a touring bicycle instead of a driver’s license, and even if Julia’s ashes are coming along in Tupperware.

A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend is a story about friendship. About love. About traveling a thousand miles just to find yourself. About making peace with the past, and making sense of it. And it’s a story about the bloodiest high school musical one quiet suburb has ever seen.

Oh man, I have coveted this book for months! Now that I finally have a copy my stupid resolution of not reading anything until I finish my homework is slowing down my reading rate massively!
I'm in college darn it! This is not high school anymore! Don't mind me, I'm just mad at myself.

But, but, but. When I do finish reading this book you WILL hear about it!

Until next time,


  1. I can't wait to hear your thoughts, so get your homework done! :D

  2. I agree with Krista, I can't wait to see what you think of it! This one sounds awesome! :)
