Dead on Town Line

Sixteen-year-old Cassie Devlin’s body lies where she was murdered in a temporary grave beneath the ever-falling leaves. But she’s still present and she just figured out that being dead isn’t being done. With the help of “another,” who died years before, Cassie just might be able to leave her “loving ones” some peace before she goes on to “the next.”

"A powerful story...the language is lyrical and haunting adding to the suspense...absorbing and moving.” ~School Library Journal

“...captivating novel...Connor’s poetry successfully mixes sharp concrete images with Cassie’s memorable voice...” ~Booklist
