I Woke Up Dead At the Mall by Judy Sheehan

16 year old Sarah wakes up dead.  At the Mall of America.  She must take steps to let go of her mortal life so she can move on.  Once she tackles her unfinished business she can be free from the mall, and her own sadness.

Despite the title and the topic, there is so much joy in this book.  I loved this particular line:  “So it turns out the at when dead people sleep, they sleep reeeeeeeeeeally deep. That first night at the mall I slept like someone had drugged me, then clubbed me, then made me watch golf on TV.”

Sarah’s companions in the mall were so interesting and their stories were so touching, that I can see this becoming a series.
