When Ryan Harper is accidentally killed, he is handed a card: “Go to Hell, go directly to Hell, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.00.”
Once there, he is offered a fascinating opportunity: instead of burning down below, he can opt to join a new employment program they’re launching to compete with the whole “guardian angel” thing. He tentatively agrees, and wakes up in a new body, transferred to a new school, and with his first assignment: just stay close to his new classmate Amanda. That’s all he has to do, just stay close and let things happen naturally.
However, as he fends off bullies who make his new life as difficult as he made other kids’ before, deals with a bunch of goth kids who fawn all over him when he drops a pamphlet entitled “So You’re Dead, Now What?” near them accidentally, and faces the unintended consequences of a budding romance with his assignment, he discovers that he might just be along the wrong...

This book was humorous, entertaining and well-written. As a lover of Monopoly I liked all the references to the game, chapter titles, etc. The characters are fresh and unique; predicting their actions/reactions was not easy which had me reading quickly. Hoping this is only the first from this author.
This is a well written story. Using biblical/mythologic images to illustrate everything from devils to bullies to redemption, it has it all. As George Takei and Dan Savage say, "It gets Better" This is a book I would recommend to those who are being or have been bullied.
