Highly Commended for the Teenage Book Prize 2010. A wonderful debut novel which, as well as being laugh-out-loud funny, is full of insights, compassion, and love. Fifteen-year-old Lucy has been stuck in the men's loo ever since she was murdered there six months ago. No one has been able to see or hear her – until Jeremy. Just her luck that he's a seriously uncool geography teacher-type! But Jeremy is determined to help Lucy. He finds out how she can leave her 'home’ – albeit only temporarily – and meet other teenage ghosts, including the gorgeous Ryan. Jeremy is also determined to help her find her killer so she can find peace at last...

‘Murray is someone to watch. Her novel drives along with great gusto. There's plenty of fun to balance loss. It's boy meets girl but so refreshingly different.’ Teenage Reading Preview
