A second fantastic book about Charlotte Usher - the girl who was just dying to be popular.
Charlotte may have graduated Dead Ed but that's not the end of her story.
Life, for Charlotte, was one bitter disappointment after another. And it seems death isn't going to be much different. Convinced that graduating Dead Ed was her route to the afterlife Charlotte is a little surprised to find she has to complete an internship!
Answering the phones at a help centre for troubled teens isn't proving brilliantly exciting. Until Scarlet calls: a pedicure-gone-hideously-wrong has landed Petula in a coma and Scarlet thinks Charlotte is the only person who can help...
Charlotte has moved on, literally, however the afterlife holds no pearly gates, winged harps or angels flying about. The after life for Charlotte is anything but eternal rest and peace, it is a small cubical and a phone, which is bad enough except that this phone never rings.
Scarlet has put up with a lot from her sister over the years, although Petula has put up with her fair share too, after all Scarlet is now with Petula's ex-boyfriend. But when it comes down to it Scarlet is willing to do almost anything to save her sister including putting innocent lives at risk, although that may be more from guilt them love.
Homecoming is at heart a story of friendships. No matter the distance between them, Charlotte and Scarlet seem to be constantly drawn to each other and not even death can keep them apart. Although Scarlet is willing to put her life, her relationship with Damen, a class full of Dead Ed students and her friendship with Charlottte on the line to save her sister, it is her faith in Charlotte that saves her in the end. Some friends truly are forever.
