4/5 "I went down like a drunken cowgirl trying to line dance to Metallica."
A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson -- part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper.
Charley sees dead people. That's right, she sees dead people. And it's her job to convince them to 'go into the light'. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she's been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.
Funny, exciting, and wonderful!!!! I laughed out-loud threw-out this book. Great plot, Fabulous characters (Reyes <3) Mr. Wong!!! Two of my favs. Love this book to death! Loved following all the different plots in this story. I think she did an awesome job with this book!!!!!!! Totally wish I was Reyes Dutch :)

The Hollow was the first book I read after the whole Twilight crazy. I had no idea there were others books out there that could pull me like Twilight did. I was SO wrong.........
Jessica Verday is one of the most brillant Authors out there. The whole telling, retelling of Sleepy Hollow is AMAZING!!!! I was so scared when the last book came out because I wasnt ready for this story to end. The Hollow, The Haunted, The Hidden This trilogy take you threw Abbey's life of dealing with the death of her best friend. You watch her struggle to make sense of her life without Kristen.
In The Hidden, Abbey's just been attacked by Vincent. She's not sure if she is even alive. Along with everything else she is dealing with she now is walking around with her impending death hanging over her always. She has Caspian's Death Day creeping slowly up. Soon she will be able to touch him....
I couldnt even possible try to break down this story for a summary it would be way to long. So, you just gonna have to trust me and read this yourself!!! Hands down, the way Jessica ends this book is like none I've ever seen. IT JUST THE BEST ENDING EVER!!! You are not left hanging or wanting more its just perfection. LOVE you Jess

Finally got my copy of Dear Bully, no ratings with this one. You cant judge other's experiences or stories. There is a lot of emotion in this read. I wish everyone who has been bullied or who is a bully to read this book.
This book is POWERFUL!!!!! Everyone has dealt with a bully sometime in there life. I encourage you all to write your own Dear Bully letter........
I use to love swimming, I remember spending all my summer at the pool with my best friend. I was only trying to "be cool", like you. Join in on your conversation, maybe make a new friend. You kept me underwater for what seemed like hours. By the time you let go of me, my lungs were burning from the lack of air, the water, and just fear. I never told anyone, not even to this day. You took a joy away from me, but you did give me something in return. You put such a deep fear of drowning in me that when I had kids, swimming was one of the first things to learn. My husband taught each one to swim. Not just for fun, but for survival. So thank you, thank you that my kids know what to do if they are ever in a situation where they are held underwater. They know how to save someone else's life. They know the importance of swimming safety. Maybe one day I'll even try to go back into the water, who knows.
Your not to funny joke,
