Just because you're dead doesn't mean you don't deserve a life. Crow Darlingson died in the 4th grade. But he's still alive. And growing, actually. He can't eat or taste anything, his body parts sometimes fall off (mom always sews them back on, though), and he's only allowed to leave his house once per year, on Halloween. Crow's parents are separating, and despite their reassurances, he's pretty sure it's his fault. After all, having an undead son can't be much easier than being one. Sneaking out at night only makes things worse, but he can't resist the chance at a real friendship with Melody Plympton, the new girl next door, who loves mystery more than she minds the stink of his flesh or the maggots that sometimes crawl out of his nose. Together they investigate the mysterious Meera - a monster living in the nearby park. Logic and fear tell Crow to stay away, but fuzzy memories lure him on. When Crow and Melody venture into its underground lair, Crow's not just risking the half-life he clings to. He's also risking the only friend he's had in years. The importance of friendship is crystallized as Crow and Melody face tests of loyalty, courage, and honor in this macabre middle grade novel by a debut author.
