Publisher's Summary

Judy Sheehan's debut young adult novel is a terrifically fun listen that also tackles some of life's - and the afterlife's - big questions.

Last night Sarah was a bridesmaid, dressed in a hideous mango chiffon. Today she wakes up dead at the Mall of America. This is where the universe sends teenagers who were murdered. In fact most malls are haunted. The living don't notice it, what with all the bright lights, sales, and free samples. The dead just pass through them while finishing up the business of their former lives.

As Sarah and her fellow dead teenagers work together to move on, she hits just a few complications: Sarah discovers an uncanny ability to haunt the living, and while she has no idea who killed her, she knows the one person she loves back on Earth is in grave (yes, grave) danger. Meanwhile, she's falling madly and badly for Nick, who died heroically saving his girlfriend. Sarah can't let these distractions put her at risk of being doomed to relive her final moments again and again. But how can she stop her killer from killing again?

Light and fun even though everyone is dead

I was looking for something light and entertaining to listen to. And this book did not disappoint. It was well written and moved along at a good pace. It was fun without being stupid. The story was imaginative and didn't get bogged down in trying to be philosophical about the after life. Overall, a good read/listen. The narrator did an excellent job.

Good Lighthearted Reading

What did you love best about I Woke Up Dead at the Mall?

I loved the dark humor and the escape this book offered me. I've read a few more serious books recently and ended up picking this book when I was looking to de-stress. The love story part was a tad bit annoying at times (and I'm usually a hopeless romantic), but it didn't ruin the overall story. I think the best part of this book for me was Sarah's internal thoughts and her pondering over questions.

Such a creative world

I loved this book. It is such a beautiful way of thinking of the afterlife. I like that it doesn't have to do with religion. It is such a positive outlook on death and the characters were great.

Interesting and funny read. May never think of afterlife the same way again!

Sara and her dead mall group learn and experience epiphanies pst death. Very sweet story. Would be nice if this was what the afterlife was really like.

Fun, lighthearted read. Very much enjoyed. The narrator was adorable and added a sweet touch to the novel with her voice acting.

Woah

Very strange book and honestly, I wasn't expecting it to be that great. However, it was really unique and incredible. Nothing like anything I've read before and a story that will stick with me for quite some time.

another take on the after life

If you have the romance package go ahead and get the book, if not, dont waste your money/credits on this one.
If you can pass the narrator annoying high and whining voice the story is actually not that bad, its another take on the after life, its not the best written book ever and Im sure its not gonna be nominated for any awards but it was ok. It does get a bit repetitive at times.
No spoiler: Its a 16 y/o girl who dies and she wakes up at a mall like place, there is a death coach that explains this place is where she needs to stay to fix her unfinished business, girl meets a cute boy, boy likes her back, they need to work their unsolved issues, its not allowed to date at "the mall", you get the idea.

Wow! You should give it a chance.

I didn't expect to enjoy this book so much. Yes its YA but it explores an alternative after life that I found interesting. And unfortunately, I lost a family member at a young age to cancer so it's nice to think that maybe, just maybe she might have had an option like this after she passed. This is a fun quick read and I recommend it as something light, but also something that makes you think a little deeper. It reminds you to not take any day for granted and to show your appreciation for your loved ones while they are still here.
