Synopsis

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike

Kimberlee's dead. Has been for a while, actually. Stuck haunting the halls of her high school, she's doomed to an afterlife of boredom. That is until the new kid shows up. The first thing Jeff spots is Kimberlee lying on the floor as other students walk right through her. Pretty soon she's harangued him into helping her escape to the afterlife. Kimberlee guesses that once Jeff rights her mean girl wrongs she'll be able to move on. But nothing is simple in life after death...Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel, by #1 New York Times bestselling author.

Reviews

Praise for WINGS series: Aprilynne Pike's WINGS is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds. Stephenie Meyer, author of the TWILIGHT Saga SPELLS is brilliant and lovely. Aprilynne Pike's talent just continues to bloom and I am almost afraid to see how awesome her next book will be. Carrie Jones, bestselling author of NEED and CAPTIVATE An enthralling story of danger and love. This reinterpretation of the faerie story is one that will captivate readers with its plausibility and imagination. Romantic Times Silky narration ... delicious escapism. Kirkus Reviews
