Publisher's Summary

Judy Sheehan's debut young adult novel is a terrifically fun listen that also tackles some of life's - and the afterlife's - big questions.
Last night Sarah was a bridesmaid, dressed in a hideous mango chiffon. Today she wakes up dead at the Mall of America. This is where the universe sends teenagers who were murdered. In fact most malls are haunted. The living don't notice it, what with all the bright lights, sales, and free samples. The dead just pass through them while finishing up the business of their former lives.
As Sarah and her fellow dead teenagers work together to move on, she hits just a few complications: Sarah discovers an uncanny ability to haunt the living, and while she has no idea who killed her, she knows the one person she loves back on Earth is in grave (yes, grave) danger. Meanwhile, she's falling madly and badly for Nick, who died heroically saving his girlfriend. Sarah can't let these distractions put her at risk of being doomed to relive her final moments again and again. But how can she stop her killer from killing again?

Good Lighthearted Reading

What did you love best about I Woke Up Dead at the Mall?

I loved the dark humor and the escape this book offered me. I've read a few more serious books recently and ended up picking this book when I was looking to de-stress. The love story part was a tad bit annoying at times (and I'm usually a hopeless romantic), but it didn't ruin the overall story. I think the best part of this book for me was Sarah's internal thoughts and her pondering over questions.

Light and fun even though everyone is dead

I was looking for something light and entertaining to listen to. And this book did not disappoint. It was well written and moved along at a good pace. It was fun without being stupid. The story was imaginative and didn't get bogged down in trying to be philosophical about the after life. Overall, a good read/listen. The narrator did an excellent job.
