Tips for Dating a Dead Boy
By Molly Bartolucci
First of all, you can’t be squeamish about the whole dead thing. Now, I’m not talking about zombie dating because … ew. Living people cannot date zombies. Zombies are dead. They don’t breathe or have a heartbeat or blood circulation. Zombies don’t date. They may look like someone you used to know, but they’re just animated corpses.
Okay. Second. Dating a dead boy does not include dating ghosts. Dating a ghost is pointless. They don’t have bodies, they don’t understand the concept of privacy, and if they died a couple centuries ago, they don’t know how to use a phone. Also, breaking up with ghosts is impossible. They’ll haunt you.
Third (Or is that thirdly? Is thirdly a word?). If you’re dating a dead boy, he’s probably a reaper. Probably. Reapers are dead, but they can assume a mortal form. Reapers are usually only visible to necromancers or to the dead or to other reapers. Listen, I don’t really have a lot of advice here. Reaper boys are kinda moody. One minute he’s kicking your butt in training, and the next minute he’s kissing you. And then he disappears. And apparently, he forgets how to text and/or call.
You know what? I need tips about dating a dead boy. What’s your advice?

The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died.
I brought him back to life.
Then things got a little weird…
Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper—and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath. Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite boarding school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath.
Life at Nekyia has its plusses. Molly has her own personal ghoul, for one. Rick follows her there out of the blue, for another…except, there’s something a little off about him. When students at the academy start to die and Rath disappears, Molly starts to wonder if anything is as it seems. Only one thing is certain—-Molly’s got an undeadly knack for finding trouble….
