The Ungrateful Dead

The Ungrateful DeadWritten by Rose Cooper

This book grabs your attention right from the start when Anna stumbles upon both the body and the ghost of Harper. Harper is selfish, spoiled and dead; and for Anna that’s more of an annoyance than a problem. Anna can see ghosts as well as receive texts from them. Though reluctant, Anna reaches out to help Harper move on from this world to whatever lies beyond. Anna and her friend Eden soon realize that something is not quite right about Harper. The story starts out strong but gets a bit bogged down in the middle with teenage drama. Overall though, it’s a fun read and even though I have not read the first book in the series, I easily picked up the story-line.
