Silver Birch Review: The Dead Kid Detective Agency

Book Cover Image:  The Dead Kid Detective Agency

“October Schwartz is not dead,” though she’s pale enough to look like she might be, and she does spend a lot of time hanging out in her local cemetery. In fact, she spends so much time alone in the cemetery, daydreaming of zombies, that she finds herself responsible for the raising of five dead teenagers who reluctantly agree to hang out with her despite the fact that she is not, in fact, dead.

When October’s French teacher dies in a suspicious car accident, and all of the adults are writing it off as a tragic accident, or worse, a sad suicide, October decides that the dead kids, with their sneaky abilities to walk through walls and stuff, are the perfect investigative partners. Together they form the Dead Kid Detective Agency and begin to uncover the secrets behind Sticksville’s most mysterious mysteries.
