YOUNG ADULT FICTION / Romance / Contemporary
A contemporary YA romance with a paranormal twist: what happens when in between trying to decide which boy is the right boy, a girl finds out the funeral home her family owns might be haunted?

Elaine’s home is a bit…different. It’s a funeral home that has been in her family since the 1800s—and it’s why everyone calls her Funeral Girl. And even though she’s lived there her whole life, there are still secrets to be found.

When Xander, a cute new boy with a penchant for ghost hunting, arrives in town, Elaine feels an instant spark. His daring and spontaneous ways help her go from Funeral Girl to Fun Girl. Then there’s Miles, Elaine’s oldest friend, who she’s starting to see in a completely new light.
 
After Xander convinces her to stage a seance one night, Elaine discovers that her home might be haunted by a kindred spirit—the daughter of the funeral home’s original owner. But who wants to be haunted by the dead when there are boys to spend time with? After all, you only live once….

Story Locale: Present day, smalltown Illinois



    CONTEMPORARY WITH A HOOK: While this book includes a paranormal twist, it is not a paranormal novel. Instead, it is a contemporary story with a satisfying romance—a love triangle between our main character and two boys.

    FUNERAL HOME—NO, REALLY! It is no secret that people are intrigued by the work done in funeral homes and the people who do this work. This book allows readers to peek behind the curtain of this oft-misunderstood profession in the vein of classics like My Girl and Six Feet Under.

Sara Bennett Wealer grew up in Manhattan, Kansas (the “Little Apple”), where she sang in all the choirs and wrote for the high school newspaper.
