Unexpected Jade is the new girl in the town Woodbridge. She just moved into her dream home... Or so she thought. When the kids at school start to whisper whenever she comes their way, Jade started to wonder.Finally she found out what the secret had been. She was living in the home of the most popular girl in school. This girl was Kayla Sloane, and she was murdered. Now Kayla's spirit haunts the home and Jade's little brother Colby. How many risks will Jade take to save her brother and put Kayla's spirit to rest? Introduction Quote "Looking back, we'd all been haunted by the Dead and Buried. Not just the house. We'd carried ghosts inside of us, making our spirits weary. Dad, Marie, and I with my mother. Faye, Kane and the others with Kayla. And perhaps heavier than the ghost were the secrets we carried." (Harrington, pages 292-293) This quote shows how everyone carries burden. It may be big or little, either way everyone has experienced it. Carrying a burden may be physically, with maybe an injury caused by a fight, or emotionally, maybe someone who you were close with passed away. I thought this was a great quote to use from The Dead and Buried because everyone has lived through burden, and it's good to bring attention to it. Sometimes talking about these types of things is healthy and bring our spirits up, get something off our chest. If you were in Jade's place, what would you do? What would you do if you had to solve the murder case of an angry spirit who threatened to hurt your family? How would feel if an unexpected intruder threatened your family? Questions I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery, paranormal, and romantic books. It's a perfect blend of all three! The Dead and Buried is very interesting because you'd never expect who killed Kayla and all of Kayla's darkest secrets. You're sucked into a whole new world that will make you want to read the next chapter. This book is definitely one of my favorites! Summary In the Dead and Buried, Jade, the main character, moved into the house of the most popular girl in school who was murdered. Her name was Kayla Sloane and was pushed to her death. Still no one knew who did it, and now it's Jade's job to discover the killer, otherwise Kayla, an angry spirit who is able to connect to Jade through Colby, will hurt Colby. Many people suspected Kayla's boyfriend, Donovan. They also suspected an enemy of Kayla's, Alexa. Both of them were innocent. Kane was Kayla's ex boyfriend and he too had nothing to do with the death of Kayla. In a turn of events, it was Kane's little sister, Ellie, who pushed Kayla down a flight of stairs in her own home. Finally, Kayla's spirit was put to rest, and Jade and her family were safe at last. Gems Mystery Murder Love Secrets Unexpected *Character Fact*
Jade was actually very upset when her baby brother was going to be born But when she held him for the first time "...all the hatred, the anger, and selfish, petulant feelings evaporated" (Harrington, page 6) *Character Fact*
Kayla is very cruel and she knows it too! She even wrote in her diary, "With popularity comes power and I could crush any of them with a simple text blast." (Harrington, page 1)
