116) Dead Girl Dancing by Linda Joy Singleton

The Blurb :

Oh, wow--I'm my own best friend. Or at least, I'm in her body! Okay, this assignment will be quick and easy. Thanks, Grammy! See, my dead grandmother keeps finding people who have big problems and then I have the freaky experience of stepping into their life--and their body!--to provide help.

This time, I'm in the body of my BFF, Alyce. Since Alyce and I know everything about each other, I won't have to do a lot of detective work, which is a definite plus. But, as Alyce, I've got some really pressing questions to answer--starting with, What am I doing in this coffin?

My Thoughts :

After the cliffhanger ending in the second book in the Dead Girl Series, Dead Girl Dancing, I couldn't wait to start this last book in the trilogy.  I would have read it straight after finishing the previous book but another book arrived on my Kindle and took beat this one down the to be read list.  Now however I have finished the story and am left extremely happy that I read these books about the 'Dead Girl'.

There are so many things I liked about this series and even though I loved the 'Seer Series' more I have to say that this one wins hands down when it comes to the concept.  Original and different it was great discovering the body changing abilities and responsibilities of a Life Temper.  Also the bodies that Amber ended up Temping in were amazing choices.  They offered an amazing set of stories and plots that had me hooked to the series.

I don't know if the author has any intention of writing more Dead Girl books but this one seemed to end nicely and had complete closure.  I wouldn't mind catching up with Amber again but maybe when she is a little older.  Yes this is a Young Adult set of books but the characters are far from teenage giggling schoolkids.  They are mature for their age and are dealing with real issues but with a paranormal twist.

Well worth checking out this series and this author in general.  I would like to highly recommend this and the Seer Series for any young readers you need a book for and maybe even read it yourself beforehand.  I will be keeping an eye out for more paranormal books by this author.

This bodyjumping is still not appealing to me at all, but I am glad you enjoyed it so much.
