(buried, not short)
Johnny Maxwell's new friends not appreciate the term "ghosts," but they are, well, dead.
The town council wants to sell the cemetery, and its inhabitants aren't about to take that lying down! Johnny is the only one who can see them, and and the previously alive need his help to save their home and their history. Johnny didn't mean to become the voice for the lifeless, but if he doesn't speak up, who will?
In Johnny Maxwell's second adventure, Carnegie Medalist Terry Pratchett explores the bonds between the living and the dead and proves that it's never too late to have the time of your life -- even if it is your afterlife!

I'm not really sure what to say about it. I was quite excited to get a Terry Pratchett book on my course, but now I've got it, I don't think I'm going to write about it. It's clever and sometimes funny, and there's hints at engaging with deeper issues, but most of the time I was a little bored -- probably due to the target audience being quite a bit younger than I am! -- and just reading it because I had to. Which is a bit of a shame because I normally love Terry Pratchett.more
