Six Feet Over It - Not your typical after school job

Jennifer Longo's debut YA read is mysterious, frenetic, dark and sardonic!

Imagine having an afterschool job at your local cemetery.That is what happens to Leigh when her father buys a graveyard. She is literally surrounded by death everyday and only by happenstance, she finds someone in the cemetery that she knew.  This realistic read is at times, way out there; so grab a bag of junior mints and a box of kleenix for this one.
