About the book:

Till death

Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were in love. They were destined to be together forever.


But Jana's destiny was fatally flawed. And now she's in Dead School, where Mars Dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom, with his beguiling blue eyes, mysterious smile, and irresistibly warm touch.


Michael and Jana were incomplete without each other. There was no room for Mars in Jana's life—or death—story. Jana was sure Michael would rush to her side soon.


But things aren't going according to Jana's plan. So Jana decides to do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true—no matter what rules she has to break.

Dead Rules makes me thing beetlejuice crossed with high school drama. The idea is truly unique and inventive which readers will appreciate. The pace is a fairly slow one that will create a slight reading challenge. Although, as the story progressive the intrigue and suspense will press readers through the remaining story. Overall it is an enjoyable read, but lacking as an unforgettable experience.

Love the cover, but the premise does absolutely NOTHING for me.

Mars Dreamcote...seriously? I don't even know what to say to that.

Actually, it reminds me of high school when we had substitute teachers and my friends would sign the roll sheet with names like Phart Stinkalot.
