In today's SLJ email, there's a teen review of DEAD GIRL DANCING:

I don't know how long that will stay posted so I'll share it here:
The plot of this book is very original. You don't often read books about people switching into someone else’s body for a living! Dead Girl Dancing is a more modern day version of Freaky Friday, with a spin on it.
The cover did tempt me a bit to pick up the book, but it was more the fact that it was a book from the Dead Girl series that made me it up than the cover. While the cover did reflect the contents of the book, I think they could have come up with something more original that reflected Sharayah's character.
The best part of the book is how Amber, as a character, stays true to herself and the plot line, and stays true to herself during any situation. I also liked how she always somehow refers to a book she read during any possible situation to herself.
The book was good, but I was hoping for Amber to stay herself and how she's getting used to her daily life again. I also wanted to know how she feels now towards both Sharayah and Leah after she was their ‘Temp Lifer’. – Sabrina K., age 14


What's nice is that the things Sabrina says she wants to know moer about are answered in the final DEAD GIRL book, DEAD GIRL IN LOVE. So she should enjoy that one, too, when it comes out in the Fall.
