Dying to Meet You: 43 Cemetary Road: Book One is a hilarious ghost story ( an oxymoron? ) which is cleverly written in the form of letter from I.B. Grumply to the two inhabitants of the house is renting for the summer. He's come to Ghastly, Illinois to cure his writer's block and publish his next book for children. While at Spence Mansion, he meets Seymour Hope, who has been abandoned by his paranormal researcher parents, Les and Diane Hope to run off to Europe on tour. Grumply, in time, becomes friends with Olive C. Spence who has haunted the mansion since her death. She insists she will not end her haunting until she publishes a book. Together, the three find a unique way to write, illustrate, and publish a children's book which has people clamouring for more!

Kate Klise has a knack for presenting a story in a way which is most fun for the reader. Her letters are silly, the characters names are hilarious, and the interweaving of the plot is inventive.
