Kurzbeschreibung

Even being dead isn’t enough to get you out of maths class.

Dying wasn't on sixteen-year-old Riley Richardson's to-do list. And now, not only is she dead, but she's stuck in a perpetual high school nightmare. Worse still, she's stuck there with the geekiest, most annoying boy in the history of the world, ever.

In a school where the geeks are popular and just about everything is wrong, Riley has become an outcast. She begins a desperate quest to get back home, but her once-perfect life starts to unravel into something not nearly as great as she thought it was. And maybe death isn’t really that bad after all...

Welcome to Afterlife Academy, where horns are the norm, the microwave is more intelligent than the teachers, and the pumpkins have a taste for blood.

- - -

Afterlife Academy is a Young Adult paranormal romantic comedy, suitable for approximately ages 14 and up.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wunderbare Geschichte, nicht nur für Teenager! 7. Januar 2014
Von A.H.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch hat mich total fasziniert, die Hautpersonen und Orte werden sehr liebevoll beschrieben. Man fiebert mit den Hauptpersonen mit und hofft auf eine gute "endgültige" Lösung für die beiden jungen Menschen. Spannend, lustig, faszinierend.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Cute Story! 16. Mai 2013
Von kindlemom1 (My Guilty Obsession) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The cover on this is gorgeous!

This really was a fun story that took me by surprise. The plot was engaging and unique enough that it kept me interesting in the storyline and the underlining messages that author was trying to portray.

Unfortunately I never felt any connection to the two main characters but the author's subtle messages about forgiveness, righting past wrongs and learning that it is okay to be different more than made up for my lack of connection to the characters.

I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Immensely enjoyable read! 18. März 2013
Von Robin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My attention was immediately riveted by this cover. (Love pink!) But as I read the excerpt and blurb, I was hooked. I knew I just had to read this book even though YA isn't typically my preferred genre. As a fan of the regrettably short-lived cable show, Dead Like Me, the concept of Afterlife Academy seemed to be something I would enjoy. It appears I was right! It's a story of death and ultimate redemption. The heroine is someone, had the story picked at an earlier time, I wouldn't have sympathized with. Instead the author took an ultimate mean-girl character and turned her into someone you wanted to root for. The only thing I probably would've liked to have seen would've been a peek at the heroine's parents. Other than that, I was enraptured by the story and if not for the battery on my Nook dying, I would've completed it in one seating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved this fast-paced, light-hearted fun read... 16. März 2013
Von Cuddle Bug - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I started this YA supernatural (paranormal) romantic comedy fiction book at the gym and was delighted to find it was a very fast-paced and engaging read. Love to get lost in a book and find my half hour of exercise has passed with my hardly noticing while I've read several chapters of something fascinating on moi Kindle Paperwhite, 6" High Resolution Display with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers (exactly what happened with this book). 'Afterlife Academy' has a very cool and unique plot and the fun story is told in an engaging way. *SPOILER ALERT* Yes, it's about death/dying and describes a terrible accident which occurs and is described in the first couple of chapters of this book yet it is a fun and entertaining look at what happens after death. I read Creepy Christmas by this same author so was excited to read her newest book. I recently bought her second book, which sounds hilarious (it's a romantic comedy where the main character is looking for a man... for their mom). I'll get to Kismetology when I'm done with this one. Jaimie Admans is absolutely a writer to watch. 'Creepy Christmas' was a fun book for children, yet I enjoyed it a lot being very much a child at heart. Her new books are for young adults and adults. Be prepared for funny, fun (light-hearted) and a fast-paced read with nifty English/Welsh colloquialisms, which really add to the atmosphere of the book, in a highly creative plot. Happy reading~*

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fun, cute story 26. August 2013
Von Tonyalee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a teens worse nightmare! After dying, Riley discovers that she is to attend The Afterlife Academy, before moving on in her After Life, where she must continue her education in a less... tradition way. Much to her chagrin, she discovers that she is not alone; that Anthony, the class "nerd" is right there with her. She soon discovers there is more going on then she initially assumed and is determined to get home.

I loved the setting. The eerie undertones of the place was perfect. Everything was void of color; making the place and people grey. The ever-present fog. And knowing that if you were to choose to walk off those grounds, you would have NO WHERE to go. Not to mention; even when your "graduate," you don't know exactly where you go. Really creepy. There were other small paranormal aspects thrown in, that I thoroughly enjoyed. The biting pumpkin (I want one, just sayin)

Throughout the entire story; Riley is constantly struggling. To understand what happened. With Denial.Guilt.Sadness.Regret She stands outs at the academy; beings she isn't muted in any way. Keeping her natural skin tones, brown hair and colorful jewelry, she quickly becomes the outcast. I hate to admit it; but watching her struggle with this was amusing and quite entertaining. It's obvious from the start, she was NOT a nice person, actually she was quite NASTY while living, so seeing her get a dose of her own medicine and watching karma show her face was necessary. I felt sorry for her at the same time though. Her stubbornness and devotion (however misguided) to Wade were her best and worst character trait. I just wanted to SHAKE her! Of course, it was admirable too, that she would have such love and devotion to her family and friends.

I really liked Anthony. I thought he would hold more a grudge against Riley, or at least be a little more bitter about it, but he wasn't. Sure, he had a few harsh things to say, and had NOTHING nice to say about Wade but he was always there. He was Riley's backbone throughout it all, which goes to show how awesome he really is. I thought their slow build up to friendship, then more, was just so sweet.

Overall~ I really enjoyed this! I wish we could have discovered more about the Academy and the Afterlife itself though. This is more a story of forgiveness, redemption and accepting the cards you've been dealt. If there is a sequel, I'll be there.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Similar to Dreamland but I Thoroughly Enjoyed It 13. Juli 2013
Von Sophia Lin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. My review is not influenced in any way.

I honestly thought I was going to silently scream and run in terror from the first few chapters of reading. Not that it was bad, because it wasn't bad, but because I recently finished Dreamland a few weeks before I started and I didn't think I could deal with any romance components added in (er, I don't think I need to tell why either... because it would be long and this review spotlight is shining on Afterlife Academy, not a required reading from centuries ago *innocent face*).

I think I should now warn of a tad bit of comparing and contrasting between Dreamland and Afterlife Academy throughout. No venn diagrams were created in the process (though I probably did behind the scenes... mentally).

Despite my having to "run and hide" with other good books to relieve myself of the terror, Afterlife Academy was better than I had actually expected. To be brutally honest, I thought it was going to be just as bad and I'd have to permanently stick with mysteries/thrillers (hmm, maybe Stephen King :p) or maybe even other genres for the rest of my life. Or maybe, really hide in an actual closed cubicle. Eep.

Also, despite the fact that the main character Riley is basically complaining throughout the book that she didn't belong at the academy and about her love life with her former live boyfriend, there was just something there that made me not hide in a closed cubicle: Admans' style of writing and the main character's tone.

The tone and style of writing sounded almost like a monologue and it felt like I was more in Riley's shoes (or maybe even right next to her) than just standing in the background the entire watching everything in the book (and time) fly by. Generally, you'll probably feel as though you're lurking around. And then afterwards, you end up asking:

I would also never have thought that Riley would actually be a humorous person. She didn't really seem that type of person - it seemed more of Narissa's style than Riley's. If anything, Afterlife Academy is a nice change in the Paranormal genre of YA. Because really, where do you usually find a school just for dead teenagers in books? Hogwarts doesn't really accept them (it's sad if you ask me...) and they're hardly mentioned.
