9780142419427: Three Quarters Dead

Being the new girl at school is rough. But when the popular girls choose Kerry as the newest member of their ultra-exclusive clique, she thinks her troubles are finally finished. When her three new friends are killed in a horrifying car crash, her life seems over as well. But then the texts begin. . . .

Richard Peck returns to his contemporary teen- and ghost-story roots in this suspenseful page-turner with a subtle commentary on peer pressure that fans of television dramas such as Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries will devour.

About the Author:

Richard Peck, author of more than thirty novels, is one of the most celebrated children's book writers in the country. He has won the Newbery Medal, the Edgar Award, the Margaret A. Edwards Award, a National Humanities Medal, and twice been a National Book Award finalist, among many other honors. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-10–Kerry, a sophomore at a top school, spends most of her time alone, feeling invisible. Suddenly and without reason, she is befriended by the three most popular and powerful girls in school. Feeling alive and important, and desperate to keep her new friends happy, she goes along with their pranks and plans, even when they are exceedingly cruel. When a car accident takes the queen bees' lives, Kerry ends up socially dead. But several months after their funerals, she gets a strange text message. The mean girls are back, wanting to go out into the world, and needing her to make that happen. This is a compulsive page-turner. The fast-paced story is chilling on several levels. Kerry's lack of self-confidence allows her to be used horribly, and it is hard to decide which is scarier–her caving in to peer pressure or her spending time with rotting ghosts. Peck can conjure up a scene with details so believable, you can practically smell and taste them. A small flaw is that he never quite nails modern teen girl-speak, which comes across as forced and is mixed up with old-fashioned phrases. But for horror fans seeking a thrill, those details may be trivial. This is a good choice for young teens who have run through all of the Caroline Cooney's or Lois Duncan's books.Geri Diorio, The Ridgefield Library, CT
