Book Description

October 2, 2012

Darynda Jones, author of The New York Times bestselling series that began with First Grave on the Right, brings us Death and the Girl Next Door, a thrilling Young Adult novel garnering high praise and early buzz from major authors

Ten years ago, Lorelei's parents disappeared without a trace.  Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home.  For Lorelei, life goes on.

High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be.  Until the day the school's designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it,  standing outside her house in the dark, night after night.  Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school.  Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity.  What does Jared know about her parents?  Why does Cameron tell Jared he can't have Lorelei?  And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real?  Thrilling, sassy, sexy, and inventive, Darynda Jones's first foray into the world of teens will leave readers eager for the next installment.

ABSOLUTELY ADORED Darynda's Grave series -- 
(I just ordered book 3) and I can't wait to see how she tackles YA!  


  1. I love her Charley Davidson series and am anxious to see how she tackles YA ..great pick. My WoW

  2. Death and the Girl Next Door sounds like it could be really cool, but I'm just not a fan of the cover. It's a little too cheesy, but the summary is interesting! :)

  3. Great pick! I'm looking forward to this one as well. :)

  4. Love your pick! I LOVE Darynda's books and I can't wait for this one!

  5. Lots of mystery in this one. Sounds really good. Love the cover too.

    Here's my version of WoW
