Title: Almost Dead

 Author: Rebecca A. Rogers

Release date: September 15th, 2013

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

Seventeen-year-old Flora Mackey is not exactly thrilled to wake up from a car accident and find out she’s a ghost. Making this lifelike hell even worse is being trapped with her arch enemy and collision partner, Laney Tipps. The two normally couldn’t get along if their lives depended on it, but now they have no choice.

After recovering from the initial shock of seeing their lifeless bodies—and that they can’t escape each other—Flora and Laney have to find a way out of the twisted, gray realm. But they quickly learn that the farther they stray from their motionless corpses, the weaker they become. Luckily Sara, a spirit guide, shows up to help. Sara informs them they’ll have to wait for someone in their city to die so they can take their place in.

What’s scarier than waiting in purgatory? Time. If Flora and Laney don’t return to the physical world and leave clues for their families that they’re still alive, they’ll never be found. Which sucks, because once their bodies give out, their souls will be permanently


Book Excerpt

I groan. I’m so. Freaking. Bored. I wish Sara had a TV so I’d have something to do. How crazy would it be to have ghostly news and not-your-normal-reality shows? Like, MTV would be Macabre TV. The DIY channel could be all about keeping the fog off your front lawn, or how to dig your own grave. They should have, like, the Bachelor for spirits. But what if the guy got rejected, even in the afterlife? God, that would blow.

I should definitely bring up my suggestion when Sara gets back. Maybe the Elders aren’t just bags of bones and they’d be open to the concept of keeping spirits around instead of sending them on. It’d make for a livelier place—and nobody can deny that this dimension definitely needs a complete restoration in that department.


RebeccaRebecca expressed her creative side at an early age and hasn’t stopped since. She won’t hesitate to tell you that she lives inside her imagination, and it’s better than reality.

In short: I’d insert something here along the lines of living in the Northeast or Europe with my wonderful husband and our dogs, but these things haven’t happened yet. Instead, I’ll tell you I’m an avid gamer, chocoholic, coffee addict, animal lover, and own way too many books and shoes.
