Description:Even being dead isn’t enough to get you out of maths class.Dying wasn't on sixteen-year-old Riley Richardson's to-do list. And now, not only is she dead, but she's stuck in a perpetual high school nightmare. Worse still, she's stuck there with the geekiest, most annoying boy in the history of the world, ever.In a school where the geeks are popular and just about everything is wrong, Riley has become an outcast. She begins a desperate quest to get back home, but her once-perfect life starts to unravel into something not nearly as great as she thought it was. And maybe death isn’t really that bad after all...Welcome to Afterlife Academy, where horns are the norm, the microwave is more intelligent than the teachers, and the pumpkins have a taste for blood.
Oh what I fun filled quick read this was. This was a perfect little read I need to get over the last book I read. I was light and quirky with a riveting plot. I haven't read many ghost story but I like how the author has put her own spin on the Afterlife. If you haven't finish school when you die you will go back to school until you graduate and move into the Ghost World to get a job. At first I was like "What? Having to go back to school after you die now that sucks." However, it was fantastic and different to most ghost books I have read.
It follows Riley a popular girl at school who dies in an accident, which kills a fellow student. They are both sent to Afterlife Academy. Riley doesn't think she belongs there. She doesn't want to be belong. She doesn't fit in but she doesn't make it easy for herself either. She is whiny and annoying about her situations and ALWAYS going on about her boyfriend Wade. However, things aren't that bad with Anthony around. Now Anthony use to be bullied by Riley and her gang at school. He is quiet and doesn't fit in at school. But at Afterlife Academy he belongs. He is popular and people like him. Riley and Anthony build a friendship and he helps her become who she really is.
Afterlife Academy is like nothing I have ever read. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a story that is little bit fun and different. The plot is exciting and so fast paced that you can easily read it in a sitting or two. The author manages to create a cute and funny ghost story but interwines some serious moments aswell. Go grab yourself a copy it's only 99p on kindle and see for yourself. :)
I first seen this cover when I took part in the Official Cover Reveal. I loved it straight away. I love how it is mostly greyish tones but has the pink that really pops! The cover really fits with the story. It is just a really pretty cover.
