Great plot twist that will keep you reading.

I think this could have been an extremly good book, but I didn't like the F word that was in the book and in most cases, I won't read on when I come across this word.

Even though I'm a grown-up, I still like to read Young Adult books.

A very enjoyable read. I loved the suburban high school setting, a la John Hughes except it is in the South Chicago suburb of Palos. Plus, the main character is a lovable outcast, who slowly finds her way. Lots of great details about high school life. It makes sense that the author has been working for 5 years on the Hannah Montana show, she gets teen dialogue just right. The book became quite addicting, and by by midway I couldn't put it down. By putting the E-book on my iPhone, of course, I was reading it at every free moment, even during meetings when I should have been working! Great summer read, look forward to future books from this author.

I just bought my first Kindle and this was my first fiction reading experience on my new eReader. What a great first eBook! I loved it. I bought this book, because it had a cool cover and I thought it sounded really interesting. Plus, it was at a GREAT PRICE!!! Even though I'm a grown-up, I still like to read Young Adult books. This book was super fun and entertaining. It gets right into the mystery and romance in an incredibly believable way. What I really dig about it is that the characters are not superficial teenagers. They're real people. I hate books that "write down" to young adults. If you love John Hughes movies, Veronica Mars, and Twilight books (for the relationship angle this book doesn't have any vampires), I think you'll like this. I really did.

My 13 year old daughter loved this book so I'm writing a quick review. She didn't get into it right away, but by the end, she was gushing , and could hardly wait to get her hands on the next book. I was a little taken aback when she pointed out the "f' word, primarily because the description states 11 & up. I wouldn't expect that usage in a book recommended for 11 year olds. The language was sparse, however, and did not detract from her enjoyment of the story. It is very hard to find YA literature that doesn't deal with paranormal or zombies, so this was refreshing. Definitely a mystery that grabbed her attention!

Every now and then a YA book review is sent my way and I accept because with each read, I enjoy the YA genre more and more. This is another example of a highly entertaining YA read that us adults can also enjoy. From the beginning the reader is introduced to Kait, a high schooler who has lost her mom to cancer and finds a connection with her when she crashes funerals. This may sound crazy, but when she attends a funeral she ends up in the middle of a murder mystery that makes her confront all sorts of fears.

I absolutely love books that have twists and turns and the reader is kept in the loop throughout. Nothing like the killer being a character that shows up in the end - no good. Not the case with this one, this author had the ability to give out facts, but let the reader take their imagination to find out who our killer is in the end. This is worth reading to the very last page.

A book that is perfect for the high school reader who loves a little mystery, a little romance and may even be a reluctant reader. A warning to the the young readers, there is mention of heroin overdoses and through the reading, these are proved wrong. I in no way condone the use of any illegal substances, but I think that the topic is covered well in this book.

I've been burned a few times lately with eBook fiction. Adventures In Funeral Crashing is not one that burned me! By "burned" I mean I bought a book only to find it was a short story (or less), or that it was filled with typos and grammar problems, or that the writer couldn't write. But let me tell you - Look at the cover of this book, read the title, and look at the picture - and the story fits it EXACTLY! This sometimes shy, sometimes outgoing, always funny, high school girl named Kait is a funeral crasher! That means she loves going to funerals whether she knows the one going 6-feet under or not. And she's even considered answering an ad to be a professional mourner of all things! Listen, I'm a man a little over 30 and this story is NOT just for teens! As a matter of fact, I'd say it often falls into the Dark Humor category and it exceeds your expectations. I only read it because my sister kept insisting and when I finally relented and borrowed it, I was hooked by the first page when she (speaking in First Person) says to the reader, "It's simple. Super simple. I happen to like funerals..."! And the witty but strange girl soon gets involved in a mystery she never saw coming and neither will you. This is a FRESH STORY very original.

I liked this book, it was very cute and a quick read. Definitively worth it.

The Ms. Harris did a great job keeping the dialog modern and events current. This was not my typical Paranormal YA book, in fact there are no paranormal elements to it but I still enjoyed it. I think the characters seemed a bit immature for high School students but it would be a perfect book for junior high school kids and teens. They would enjoy reading something with the older kids in it but also would not me exposed to any situations suited for the older crowd.

It had a mystery surprise at the end and would recommend for anyone looking to share a book with their teen either to read with or give as a gift.

As always thank you to the author and Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! read to review program!
