Dead Rules - Randy Russell
Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were in love. They were destined to be together forever.
But Jana's destiny was fatally flawed. And now she's in Dead School, where Mars Dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom, with his beguiling blue eyes, mysterious smile, and irresistibly warm touch.
Michael and Jana were incomplete without each other. There was no room for Mars in Jana's life—or death—story. Jana was sure Michael would rush to her side soon.
But things aren't going according to Jana's plan. So Jana decides to do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true—no matter what rules she has to break.
Ghosts. I love them. Especially when the authors of ghost novels create such interesting and diverse characters, along with an interesting story line.
In Dead Rules, Randy Russell does something I've never read about in a book before: a girl dies suddenly, becomes a ghost, and is so set on a perfect life and death long love with her boyfriend, Michael, she would consider killing him to do so.
Sound interesting? If it doesn't, then...well, I'm not sure what to tell you.
Dead Rules is, by far, one of my favorite ghost-related novels to date. I loved the main character, Jana, even though she was a tad bit obsessed with Michael.
I loved all of the other characters, as well. They're the type of friends you want on your side in the after life. Each one has a strange (but true) tale of their deaths, and it kind of makes you afraid to go outside again, once you realize that oh, hey, my body could be cut in half with a piece of flying-metal!
The ending was probably the best, though.
As the saying goes: what goes around, comes around.
I wish there was a sequel to this book, even though the ending was perfect. I just love the characters so much! 5/5 stars.
One more thing:
Is it just me, or does the guy on the BACK of the cover look like Brian Molko? Yes...no...maybe I'm crazy?
