Book Description Dead and Missing (Book #2):

Sixteen-year-old Brittany Howland only knows one other girl, Jolie Livingston, who can communicate with the dead like herself. When Brittany takes Jolie’s haunt fishing to get him out of Jolie’s hair, he mysteriously disappears. Brittany isn’t sure how she’ll tell Jolie she lost her stupid ghost. Jolie thinks her dead best friend Drew has finally crossed over, but Brittany knows better. Just before Drew went missing, he revealed why he hasn’t hitchhiked to the afterlife, a secret Brittany swore she’d take to the grave.

Book Description for Date With the Dead (Book, #1):

Sixteen-year-old Jolie Livingston’s closest and only friend Drew is this really hot dead guy, and it bites that the self-absorbed princesses at school cannot even see him. That’s right she can communicate with the dead. It’s the living she has trouble with. She and her mom inherited this awesome crib in Plymouth, MA. It’s quite a step-up from the homeless shelter in New Orleans, but there’s a catch. They can’t afford the past due mortgage, so Jolie’s working on that.

She starts a ghost hunting business called Ripsters. Somehow she’s managed to recruit Brittany, a glamour SAP smothered in pink, and a techie allergic to ghosts. Brit actually thinks he resembles the R&B singer Chris Brown. All that pink has clouded her vision. They both have special talents Jolie’s hoping will be useful to their venture. Right now, they’re working for a family in need of major therapy due to a dead guy with a hole in his head


I drag myself from the bed, knocking off a sheet of paper onto the floor. A red heart is scrawled in crayon with a short note.
If we should ever have to part,
Keep me in your dreams and prayers.
You know how much I need them. I chuckle.
Your best friend, Drew
For being dead, Drew is pretty amazing. The fact he can write me a note, touch me, if only briefly, and he looks so real I often forget he isn’t really there for me. A knot of heat expands in my chest for him.
I gather the roses, bring them to my nose, and inhale. He’s told his story of how he died, so it’s only a matter of time before he crosses over and leaves me. “Oh, Drew.”
I pad out to the kitchen, put the roses into a vase, and set them on the table. Drew is something else. Hope he didn’t steal the flowers from the old woman selling them on the waterfront. Or worse if someone saw roses flitting down Water Street. Please don’t let it be that. He’s such a troublemaker.
