RELEASE DATE:  20 November 2018

Publisher: TCK Publishing

Format: E-Book

Pages: 299



Fourteen-year-old Peter Green can’t remember how he died.
All he has are his pajamas, a silk tie, and a one-way bus ticket to Mrs. Battisworth’s Academy and Haven for Unliving Boys and Girls, a strange and spooky school for dead orphans like himself. But that’s all he needs: the Unliving Academy has everything, from vampires in the hallways, to monsters in the cafeteria, to ghosts in the basement.

And that’s just the teachers; the students are far stranger.

As Pete learns to fit in with his new supernatural schoolmates, he starts to discover his own uniquely undead abilities, and even begins enjoying his life after death…but he just can’t shake the feeling that he’s forgotten something (or somebody!) important.

Somebody he left behind in the land of the living.

Somebody he loved very much.

Somebody who’s in terrible danger. 





Thank you so much to TCK Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


When Peter Green arrives in AfterLife, he has no memories of how he died or what his life was like before.  Transported to a school for ‘orphaned’ kids, he makes friends and starts to fit in.  Everything would be fine, if he didn’t have this nagging feeling his family back in Life were in terrible danger…and he might be able to help, if he could just get his memories back.

I absolutely loved this book.  It’s kind of marketed as YA, but it’s closer to middle grade right before YA if that makes sense.  It didn’t feel as juvenile as most middle grade reads, and the main character is 14.  This story was funny, adventurous and sweet.  I loved the group of friends Peter made at the school, especially the fabulous Charlie.

I honestly just had so much fun reading this book.  The character descriptions were wonderful and detailed, the world building was excellent and the idea behind the story was unique.

I can’t wait to read more books in this series and I’d highly recommend it to lovers of Percy Jackson and Harry Potter!
