When Lacy wakes up dead in Westminster Cemetery, final resting place of Edgar Allan Poe, she's confused. It's the job of Sam, a young soldier who died in 1865, to teach her the rules of the afterlife and to warn her about Suppression--a punishment worse than death.

Lacy desperately wants to leave the cemetery and find out how she died, but every soul is obligated to perform a job. Given the task of providing entertainment, Lacy proposes an open mic, which becomes a chance for the cemetery's residents to express themselves. But Lacy is in for another shock when surprising and long-buried truths begin to emerge.

This was a really intriguing book. I liked the premise and was excited to read it, but it took me a while to get into it. It’s a bit quirky, with the narrator speaking directly to the reader, but I generally liked it.

I really wanted to know what happened to Lacy the night she died, and I really liked the way some of the cemetery residents began to open up after Lacy joined them.

This was a fun, quick read and it was one of the more unique books I’ve read this year. I just didn’t get a deeper connection to it.
