Between junior and senior year, a magical time exists . . . the final summer of high school.

Lucy Day and her friends (mostly) survived last year's encounter with serial killers, a teenage sorcerer, new romance, and drama class. But - as usual for Team Deadgirl - the horror never ends, there's more monsters to slay, and magic is the worst.

The Deadgirl series comes highly recommended by one of my favorite bloggers, Roberta at Offbeat YA, and I’m so glad I picked it up. One of the best things about her blog is that, whether or not I love the books she recommends, it’s guaranteed that I will have never read anything quite like them before. As advertised, she truly has a knack for finding the strange and unusual. If you’re tired of the mainstream or at all interested in YA fiction that doesn’t fit the mold, I couldn’t recommend her b ...more

*I received an ecopy of this book from the author. This has not influenced my review.*

This book was great, but I had a couple small issues, so I'll get those out of the way first and then I'll get to the good stuff.

The first chapter threw me off because it was like a prologue that jumped forward in time, and then Ch. 2 jumped back to the time where the previous book left off, but it didn't explain any of that. There was also a new POV introduced that wasn't in the previous books (Z

Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA.

Pros: Imaginative plot. Strong mix of adventure and paranormal occurrences with focus on friendship. Characters manage to feel realistic in the middle of mayhem, and will warm your heart.
Cons: Very dark in places (though tempered with funny dialogue/inner monologue). Some chapters (especially the first ones) might sound confusing due to time and perspective shift.
WARNING! Horror and heartbreak around the corner. Some language.

Deadgirl Goneward by B.C. Johnson

Ok guys. Time to get serious! This is the third book in the the Deadgirl series by B.C. Johnson and by far, beyond everything you are looking for in a paranormal, young adult adventure. The characters are perfect. The action is perfect. The sarcasm and comedy and references Johnson creatively throws around the story line is perfect! I have pretty much ready every big author in the paranormal realm and B.C. Johnson is definitely one to watch! He may have started Indie... but not for long! Thi

Please read this entire series (so far) if you:
• Have no heart
• Have a heart which is already dead
• Enjoy having your heart pulped
• Are a fan of the works of other quirky paranormal YA authors such as Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Hawkins, and Stacey Kade
I devoured this book. I even was able to keep my focus on it sitting in a large, extremely crowded, noisy room for two hours.

Having said that, this is an emotional beatdown for sure; the parallels to Empire Strikes Back, a comparative romp, are not

B.C. Johnson lives in Southern California with his beautiful wife Gina, his fluffy/angry Corgi-mix Luna, and his destructive Viking sons Dash and Wyatt. He writes about snarky characters being snarky while supernatural things try to eat them. When he’s not playing video games, watching Marvel movies, or just generally being a ninth-level dork, he’s thinking about doing all that stuff. All of his b ...more
