"I can't believe I'm in the wrong body — again!" Apparently, this freaky phenomenon of stepping into someone's life — and their body — has a name: Temp Lifer.
And when my dead grandmother heaped on the praise for a job well done last time, I sort of let it happen again. (Grrr... thanks, Grammy.)
So now I'm hungover and gazing in the mirror at... my boyfriend's older sister

The book was very mysterious as well as funny. I really enjoyed the whole book and especially the character of Amber.

This is the second book in the Dead Girls series. I highly recommend it! In this book Amber, who is directionally challenged just a tad, ends up in the body of her boyfriend's troubled sister and on her way to spring break. Sure, it's cool to be an older college-age girl but how do you squash those feelings for your boyfriend that definitely isn't sisterly love? And then there's the problem that there is a Dead Lifer looking to drain your life energy. Amber has to keep Sharayah's body safe while ...more

Since Amber has lived in another body previously, Dead Girl Dancing is missing some of the 'OMG Freaky Friday type moments' which made the last book so delightful. However, it is still enjoyable.

Amber is now the temp lifter of the hungover body of her boyfriend Eli's sister, Sharayah. Sharayah is a college student and it is Spring break leaving Amber to encounter more 'mature' situations than the previous book. Amber is experiencing an interesting first look at life after high school.

Teenager Amber Borden, who has the ability to step into someone else's body--and life--returns in this second Dead Girl novel. This time, she steps into the body of her boyfriend's college-age sister, who has an obvious drinking problem and a psycho stalker.
I read the first book in a free Amazon download, and got into the thought that when life becomes too much for a person, a Temp Lifer takes over their life until they are ready to face it again. Amber is willing but inexperienced, but does he

Linda hooked me with THE SEER series, and I've always wanted to read her DEAD GIRL series. So far, they're really pretty good. I think some of the story could have been more developed or worked better with different ideas, but as a YA novel, I think it works out pretty well. I really like Amber's character because you get to know her, but she's not perfect, which means you don't hate her. The story was pretty good in this part of the series. While some parts were very predictable, I still though ...more

Not as good as the first one. In book one we have Amber stumbling through Leah's life trying to get back to her own body cause she accidently ended up in Leah's and that works. What doesn't work is her dead grandmother choosing to put teenage Amber into her boyfriends college age partying sister - without any information or training. That makes NO SENSE. Isn't her grandmother supposed to love Amber? Why would she do this? Plus Amber was kind of annoying with her belief that she knew what was nee ...more

this is a very good book as well. not as good as the first, but good enough to get me to read the third. its about amber leaving her body for a second time, but this time she ends up in her boy-friends sisters body. awkward. her boy-friends sister is a collage student, making it really hard to believe shes now legal to do. her and her crazy friends go on a spring break vacation to the beach but the hotel wasn't what was expected. through the wild and daring experience. because her soul didn't co ...more

When we last left Amber Borden, she was dead. Sort of. Actually, she was in a pretty horrible accident and when she got to the other side her recently deceased Grammy Greta sent her back. Unfortunately, Amber has a horrible sense of direction and she ended up in the wrong body. While trying to figure out how to switch back into her own body, Amber did such a good job helping her temporary body that her Grammy sent her on another mission. So instead of going home to her family and her new boyfrie ...more

The second one in this series.
Jadi ceritanya, setelah Amber selesai dengan misinya sebagai Penghuni Sementara di tubuh siapa-itu-namanya-cewek-populer-di-sekolah-dia, Amber kembali harus menjadi penghuni sementara di tubuh Sharayah. The thing that makes it complicated: si Rayah ini adalah kakak Eli, cowok yang disukai Amber (atau pacarnya ya? but as far as I know, they're not officially dating, yet...).
Somehow, Eli mengkhawatirkan Rayah, yang menurutnya berubah semenjak si Rayah ini kuliah. Dan

Today's review is on Dead Girl Dancing by: Linda Joy Singleton


Dead Girl Dancing is the second installment in this series and is much better than the first!


Dancing picks up right where Walking leaves off. Amber is now "living" in the body of Sharayah Rockingham. You read right, "Rayah" is the older sister of Eli, the boy that she "maybe-loves". At least she has the GEM; the guidance manual; to help her this time.


Rayah has changed so much after her relationship with Gabe went south. She basically

Nggak seseru buku pertama, tapi bukan berarti nggak seru. Seru sih, tapi nanggung. So, 3 stars is enough!

Tadinya aku ingin memberi 4 bintang, tapi karena ada beberapa hal yang mengganjal, makanya aku mengurangi rating. (view spoiler)

Dead Girl Dancing was a very good sequel to Dead Girl Walking. I am glad that the sequel met my expectations.

Amber stayed true to herself in this novel. I liked that she was still her even though she had been through a lot. In this book Amber faced more danger than the previous book and the stakes were much higher. Amber handled everything well and she tried her hardest to help the body (or person) that she was in. I really like strong characters like Amber and that she is a normal, healthy-eati

Ya, ini buku kedua dari seri Dead Girl. Kalian yang penakut kayak saya, pastinya langsung mengernyitkan dahi, tetiba males baca buku beginian kan? Saya pun sebenernya, tapi ternyata cerita dalam buku ini gak begitu menakutkan kok, jangan bayangin cerita di film-film horor Indonesia yang biasanya ya. Buku ini gak ke horor kok, percayalah

Adalah Amber Borden si tokoh utama dalam buku ini yang bisa masuk jiwanya (apa arwah ya? tapi blom mati sih)

Ce n'était certes pas la suite la plus attendue sur ma liste, mais j'avais tout de même hâte de lire ce second tome de la série Morte Vivante. Et franchement, il s'agit de mon tome préféré.
Nous retrouvons pour une seconde fois Amber, encore prise au piège dans un corps qui n'est pas le sien. Au lieu de se réveiller dans son propre corps, Amber se réveille dans le corps de Sharayah, la soeur aînée de son nouveau petit ami. De quoi refroidir l

When Amber mentioned that she might be body-swapping again, she had no idea that her grandmother meant straight away.

Now, instead of returning to her own life and her own family, she wakes up in the body of her boyfriend's sister.

She's just received a stalker-like text and now she's being hustled out of her room by her roommate and her friend to get to Mexico for Spring Break.

On the way they meet up with some boys. Amber finds herself out of her le

Overall this was a good book. It's easy going and has an interesting plot. I like slightly more depressing books but oh well. This book was good too and a little funny. A great book to read if you're a preteen though alright too if you're around 15 like me.
Mackenzie
This book was just as good as the first one - if not better!
I seem to be having a lot of luck when reading books so far this year, every one of them I've loved.

Anyways, about this book. The first book ends off leading us to believe that Amber was finally going to be returned to her own body...but that is not so. Instead of returning to her own body, she awakes in another girl's body with no idea where she is whatsoever. She has to quickly learn what's going on and make sure she doesn't get kille

Part two in the dead girl trilogy is even more of an adventure for Amber when she finds herself switched into the bod of her boyfriends sister. Sharaya is a pre-med student who has gotten hooked up with a very nasty boyfriend and needs a spritual vacation, so Amber steps into her life, literally, to allow her to take it.
Dealing with a Dark Lifer, a stalker, and two other crazy girls is not exactly what Amber had in mind when she agreed to help Grammy with this assignment. Needless to say it is a

Okeh, akhirnya selesai juga ni buku buat bahan siaran. Mungkin lebih seru kalau narsum siarannya nanti adalah penulisnya sendiri. Berhubung doi bule dan tinggal di luar negeri ya agak repot juga sih diundang ke studio radio. Seperti halnya buku pertama, (ruh) amber masih berada di tubuh orang lain. Kalau yang pertama ada di gadis popuelr, teman sekolahnya. Kali ini dia masuk ke dalam tubuh kakak pacarnya. Ceritanya masih seru tapi agak beda. Buku pertamanya lebih sentimentil sedangkan buku kedua ...more

When middle-schooler Amber finds herself transported into the body of a college girl bent on self-destruction, she has a lot to learn-- and fast! How does she balance not giving away her new identity with helping this girl get her life back on track?

This series isn't the best thing I've read, but it's keeping me surprisingly captivated. The books start slow, and sometimes seem aimed at a younger audience than I'd expect, but they ring true somehow as well, despite the supernatural setting.
Eleni ( La Femme Readers )
Dead Girl Dancing, is a great follow up from Book One. I experienced drama, suspense and pure excitement when I was reading it. I was intrigued with the main character Amber because her strength has grown and it's nice to see how she accepted her role as a Temp Lifer, even though she misses her real life. I cannot wait to read Dead Girl In Love, Book 3 of the series, because Linda definitely ended this book with a cliffhanger and I'm dieing to know what happens next! Ah!
Jane
I'm on page 66 and am enjoying the book so far.
It's a quick and fun read and the book is interesting so far.

Linda Joy Singleton delivers yet again. :-)
It's interesting how she can write about a serious topic without it being depressing.

I finished the book and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series-Dead Girl in Love. The book was good. So far Linda Joy Singleton doesn't disappoint. :-)
Truly
Saat pertama kali salah masuk tubuh bisa dikatakan salah jalan.
Tapi jika sampai terulang, itu bukan salah jalan lagi tapi memang disengaja!
Sekarang Amber berada di tubuh Sharayah, kakak pacarnya.
Ia terpilih menjadi Penghuni Sementara.

Penghuni Sementara hanya menggantikan orang-orang yang tidak bisa menerima masalah mereka dan sedang dalam situasi krisis

Seru!
Dani
This is a very interesting book with a cool theory. It involves a girl who works as something called a temp lifer, which means that you switch into different peoples bodies and you live their life for them while they are going through any major issues. It is part of a really good series, and is very hard to put down!

“Let me get this straight," Eli said, as if trying to be calm even though I could tell he was upset. "Instead of returning to your own body, you swapped with my sister?"

"Yes."

"So while I was waiting for you to wake up, holding your hand and saying...well, things I would never say to my sister...it was her and not you?"

"Um...yeah.”

“Here I was with the guy I maybe-loved, relaxing by the ocean with salty crisp breezes and blue-gray sea curving into a for-ever horizon. We even had background music to add to the romantic ambience. And except for the "can't kiss because he's my brother" thing, this was the perfect romantic moment.” 1 likes
