Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Grade 7 Up–On the day of her first kiss, June 15, 1904, Mallory Meer, 15, dies in the General Slocum steamship disaster. That historical blaze killed more than 1000 people from the part of New York City known as Kleindeutschland. Dustin Brauer, her Jewish boyfriend, had snuck aboard to be with her. Now, he is accused of setting the fire by the son of his fathers employer, a leader in the German neighborhood. As the official coroners inquest occurs, a secondary one takes place in the community with Dustin on trial. Mallory, now insubstantial, sees everything and helps the truth to emerge. While historically no conclusive proof was found of how the fire started, Welsh does a creditable job of imagining how it spread, including disturbing images of those trapped on the burning vessel. He uses Mallorys ghostly presence to bring the coroners inquest, and those from the boat company and the safety inspectors office, to life. Unresolved tells a remarkable story in a remarkable way. Give this engrossing novel to fans of Kathryn Reiss or Vivian Vande Veldes Being Dead (Harcourt, 2001), and to those who like a supernatural flair with their historical fiction. Without explaining anti-Semitism or corruption, Welsh shows readers the neighborhoods vibrancy and prejudices and helps them to understand how justice worked in early-20th-century New York.–Lisa Prolman, Greenfield Public Library, MA

The Washington Post said, "(J.G. Sandom) writes with a precision and delicacy unusual for YA fiction," and called KISS ME, I’M DEAD, “a subtle gem.”

School Library Journal said, "Kiss Me, I’m Dead tells a remarkable story in a remarkable way."

Horn Book Magazine called the work, "A decidedly unconventional ghost story . . . (and) a tightly wound novel."

Kirkus Reviews termed it, "A remarkable account."

Romantic Times said, "Kiss Me, I’m Dead is a book you shouldn't pass up."

Midwest Book Review termed it, "a wonderfully different kind of ghost story."
