Gain That should have been done differently or just cut some part of it Anyway even if it look very negative this is really a nice ids book around 10 years old that I enjoy reading even if it wans t perfect it was entertaining and in the end this is the most important part Take a funnier lighter version of Neil Gaiman and add some Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and you have Dead Boy a wonderful story of well a boy who is dead the friend who likes him anyway some unbearable children who can t be avoided and a magical creature who holds all their fates in its hands Dead Boy had me guessing from the start and is delightfully unlike any other book I ve read A cute middle grade mysterythriller There were a few parts that were a bit silly but on the whole this was a really enjoyable book Great for folks who like middle grade fiction Also there s definitely a set up for a seuel which I hope Ms Gale will write Being dead stank Literally With everything rotting decaying and decomposing it really did stink And let s not talk about the maggots and the skin falling off and the hair falling out Death was really the pits and eleven year old Crow Darlingson should now because Crow is dead Well dead but somehow alive If you ask Crow what s worse than being dead he would tell you that it s being alone Loneliness really stank But along came Melody Plympton his new neighbor who somehow accepted his deadness Just when things were looking up Crow and Melody discover a terrifying and mysterious creature hiding in the park A monster that also grants wishes Could this same creature be the cause of Crow s unusual existence Could Crow somehow wish himself a normal life Crow is willing to face whatever tests and dangers the monster throws at him After all once you re dead what s the worst that can happen Dead Boy is Laurel Gale s debut novel and she sure delivers She delights and entertains readers with a creepy ghoulish sweet and imaginative story that s full of heart Although it s labeled as a horror story and depicts scenes of maggots falling out of various body parts at inappropriate times not that there s an appropriate time Dead Boy is really a story about a young boy wanting to be accepted and longing for a friend Anyone who s ever wanted a friend who liked and accepted them for just the way they are will empathize with Crow and his unfortunate situation What I found refreshing about Crow was his ability to see the positive in any situation and to enjoy what little pleasure life might happen to toss his way Here s a boy with no friends unable to eat food incapable of sleep and whose entire existence is spent indoors surrounded by the safety of air conditioning he lives in the desert of all places yet he delights in the simple act of lying beneath the stars and gazing up at the night s sky He s selfless understanding intelligent loyal and a true friend in every sense of the word He s probably one of the most unlikely protagonists that I ve come upon in a long time and I certainly hope he won t be the lastNear the end of the book when the dust has settled after all of his exploits and adventures Crow realized something important that beautifully sums up the meaning of this book Maybe having friends wasn t as important as having the right friends. ??t resist the chance to finally make a friend With Melody around he may even have a shot at getting his life back from the mysterious wish granting creature living in the park But first there are tests to pass And it will mean risking the only friend he’s had in yea.
