My Friends Are Dead People

My Friends Are Dead People by Tony J. Ortiz sounded interesting--I mean, how many dead people do you know and count as friends?

Jesse lives a quiet life--he lives with his mother, has a feral cat with a mind of it's own, and is home-schooled while his best friend Katie lives next door with her foster mother and is public-schooled.  Wanting to go trick-or-treating, which they were previously not allowed to do, this duo is "treated" to a secret Jesse's mother has been keeping from him for years--there is a secret world and it has to do with him.

If you love sci-fi and/or fantasy, this is definitely the book for you.  An alternate universe, dead people, monsters, a dangerous game that puts lives in peril--what more could you need?  I see this book being an super cool read come October as Halloween fast approaches.  Freak yourself out a bit and enjoy the ride.  After all, its the best time of the year for an epic battle between the living and the dead, would you not agree?
