When Dallas resident Callie Taylor died young, she expected to go to Heaven, or maybe Hell. Instead, she met her fate early thanks to a creep with a knife and a mommy complex. Now she's witnessed another murder, and she's not about to let this one go. She's determined to help solve it before an innocent man goes to prison. And to answer the biggest question of all: why the hell did she wake up in Alabama?
What would you do if you woke up dead, miles away from home? Most of us would probably go a little crazy, but Callie quickly adjusts to her new life and tries to make a ghostly home for herself in Alabama. The only trouble is that nobody can see her, and she gets rather lonely.
But then she witnesses a murder, and sees the wrong man being sent to prison, for a crime he didn't commit. Her sense for justice plays up, and Callie rises to the task of defending the innocent man. She recruits Ashara, one of the few people who can see her, and Ashara's grandmother, Maw-Maw, to help her find the real murderer.
The book is filled with quick, sharp humor. Callie suffers through tons of awkward situations, and she does so with grace. She's an interesting, intelligent, relatable main character. She's also very strong, because even when coming to terms with the worst fate possible - being murdered - she kept on fighting.
Ashara was pretty awesome as well. A lot more outspoken, determined to get to her job no matter what (even if you're going to hunt for a killer, you can't just not show up on work :P) and sweet enough to take car of her grandmother, she was cool.
The book has a lot of meat - a complex mystery, cool characters and some unexpected plot twists.
