''Deadgirl'' is the debut novel by young adult author B.C. Johnson. It follows the story of Lucy Day, a fifteen-year-old girl who goes out on her first date and ends up [[TheHeroDies shot dead in a parking lot]]. Until she wakes up the next morning [[FirstEpisodeResurrection right as rain]]. [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Sort of]]. As it turns out, it gets a lot harder to survive after you've already died. Who knew?

Not related to the [[{{Film/Deadgirl}} film of the same name]]. Probably.

%%* AffablyEvil: Abraham tries this.
%%* TheBechdelTest
* BitterSweetEnding: In the end, [[spoiler:Lucy defeats Abraham, meaning she's essentially achieved a type of {{immortality}}]], but [[spoiler:Zack sacrifices his feelings for Lucy to give her the essence she needs to fight. Morgan is shattered by her role in Abraham's demise, and Lucy's relationship with her parents might be damaged beyond repair]].
* CessationOfExistence: The next step for Phantoms, unless they can avoid it.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Daphne.
%%* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Puck to a degree. Also revealed at the end: [[spoiler:Daphne]].

* RapeAsDrama: Attempted and completed both come up once or twice each.

%%* ShrinkingViolet: Wanda.
%%* TallDarkAndHandsome: [[LoveInterest Zack]].
* VampiricDraining: How Phantoms stay "alive." When they go too long without "eating," first they start [[ImColdSoCold to freeze]] and develop an UndeathlyPallor, then they begin to fade, becoming both [[IntangibleMan intangible]] and [[{{Invisibility}} invisible]] and then CessationOfExistence.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Lucy spends a lot of time analyzing the reasons why she can't be a ghost, or a vampire, or a zombie. As it turns out, the movies were wrong.
