Literature: Deadgirl

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 shot dead in a parking lot. Until she wakes up the next morning right as rain. 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 of the same name. Probably.


Provides Examples Of:

  • Bitter Sweet Ending: In the end, Lucy defeats Abraham, meaning she's essentially achieved a type of immortality, but 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.
  • Cessation of Existence: The next step for Phantoms, unless they can avoid it.
  • Mundane Afterlife: The Grey, sort of. It's mundane and an afterlife but not permanent.
