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 usually love Terry Pretchett but this book left me a bit dissapointed. I often laugh out loud all through the story while reading his books but this one only got a couple of chuckles out of me.
