Good Review      Over My Dead Body


Over My Dead Body

By: Kate Klise

 Reviewed by Teen Volunteer: Glenna Welsh

14 years old



The book Over My Dead Body is the second book in the series 43 Old Cemetry Road written by Kate Klise. Cleverly, Klise strayed from the original format of books and built hers out of letters, photos, sketches, and newspaper clippings all coming from her mind. The main characters consist of an elderly gentleman named Ignatius B. Grumply, a young boy, Seymour Hope, and Olive C. Spence, who is in fact a ghost. Together, the trio writes ghost stories in the old mansion. Since Seymour’s parents abandoned him, Ignatious and Olive are trying to gain legal gaurdianship over him, which turns out giving them more problems than they excpected. Finally, at the end of the book, the three learn how important they are to each other and the importance of their books to the public. Over all, the book Over My Dead Body is an entertaining and considerably quick read for one of those slow paced weekends.
