Fourteen-year-old Peter Green can’t remember how he died. 
All he has are his pajamas, a silk tie, and a one-way bus ticket to Mrs. Battisworth’s Academy and Haven for Unliving Boys and Girls, a strange and spooky school for dead orphans like himself. But that’s all he needs: the Unliving Academy has everything, from vampires in the hallways, to monsters in the cafeteria, to ghosts in the basement. 

And that’s just the teachers; the students are far stranger.

As Pete learns to fit in with his new supernatural schoolmates, he starts to discover his own uniquely undead abilities, and even begins enjoying his life after death…but he just can’t shake the feeling that he’s forgotten something (or somebody!) important. 

Somebody he left behind in the land of the living. 

Somebody he loved very much. 

Somebody who’s in terrible danger. 

Peter Green and the Unliving Academy is the captivating first installment of Angelina Allsop’s Unliving series of young adult fantasy novels. If you like reading about fun-filled adventures, fully realized new worlds, and the most unlikely of heroes, you’re sure to love Allsop’s spirited coming-of-age tale. 

Fans of Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, the Charlie Bone Series by Jenny Nimmo, and The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton will enjoy this young adult fantasy series.

Thank you to TCK Publishing for my first physical review book in exchange for an honest review.

Peter Green woke up in a station. He didn’t know where he was or who he was before. But he is dead. Now he must navigate through his Afterlife.

At first I really didn’t know how to feel about this book. I’m not one to read books like this anymore. I feel anyone could read this book and it won’t feel juvenile. The audience is mostly middle school/ freshman in high school.

I did like it though. There are a few grammatical errors, but nothing bad enough it distracted from the book. The world Allsop created was awesome. A new twist on the Afterlife.

I’m going to try talking my little cousin into reading it.

I thought it was time— a visit was due. Seeing as you wouldn’t come to me, I thought it only right I come to you. Sadly, you weren’t home, but your furry feline was more than accommodating . . . 

I’ll be seeing you soon, mon chérie. I’ll always find you . . .

For six years, a letter has dictated Amelia’s future. She’s running from a past that refuses to stop, always trying to get one step ahead. Amelia is clever and resilient, and refuses to slip up.

Relying only on herself, she’ll be anything and anyone she needs to survive. But everyone slips up . . . eventually. You can’t always stay ahead of the darkness.

I was a bit disappointed by this one. I was expecting a thriller. Didn’t get that. I got a NA story line with a thriller ending. The story was good. A bit predictable. I thought it took a little to long for the characters to get together.

I was on auto pilot with this book. After reading a few four point five and five star books before this, didn’t help. I guess I read this at the wrong time. It just didn’t live up for me. I am debating on if I want to continue the story or not.
