Synopsis

The Dead Kid Detective Agency by Evan Munday

Thirteen - year - old October Schwartz is new in town, short on friends, and the child of a clinically depressed science teacher. Naturally, she spends most of her time in the Sticksville Cemetery, which just happens to border her backyard. And that backyard just happens to be the home of five dead teenagers, each from a different era of the past: there's the dead United Empire Loyalist! The dead escaped slave who made her way north via the Underground Railroad! The dead quintuplet! Soon, October befriends the five dead kids. Together - using October's smarts and the dead kids' abilities to walk through walls and get around undetected and stuff - they form The Dead Kid Detective Agency, committed to solving Sticksville's most mysterious mysteries. October's like Nancy Drew, if she'd hung out with corpses. When Sticksville Central High School's beloved French teacher dies in a suspicious car accident, it provides the agency with its first bona fide case. Soon October and her five dead friends find themselves in the midst of a nefarious murder plot, thick with car chases, cafeteria fights, sociopathic math teachers, real estate appointments, and a wacky adventure that might uncover the truth about a bomb that exploded almost 40 years ago.
