Overview

For months, Cass has heard her best friend, Julia, whisper about a secret project. When Julia dies in a car accident, her drama friends decide to bring the project?a musical called Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad?to fruition. But Cass isn't a drama person. She can't take a summer of painting sets, and she won't spend long hours with Heather, the girl who made her miserable all through middle school and has somehow landed the leading role. So Cass takes off. In alternating chapters, she spends the first part of summer on a cross-country bike trip and the rest swallowing her pride, making props, and?of all things?falling for Heather.

This is a story of the breadth of love. Of the depth of friendship. And of the most hilarious musical one quiet suburb has ever seen.

It was really good for a first book.

A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend is a great story about friendship and overcoming problems. Cass loses her best friend, Julia, in a car accident and then takes Julia's ashes the whole way across the country to commemorate her. All the while, Cass is trying to figure out her feelings toward Julia and a few new experiments along the way. It's a great book and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a really good read.

This was an excellent book and is really indicative of how far YA books have come over the last forty years. This could have easily become the typical 'problem' novel but it was uplifting, fun and had really great characters.

Good lesbian books are a rare treat, especially ones found sitting in major chain bookstores. So I was amazed when I saw this one in Borders, picked it up, and it was actually good. It's happy. It's sad. It's a road trip story. It's a coming of age story.
