Sarah wakes up dead at the mall and discovers she was murdered at her dad’s wedding reception.  Bertha, an angel and death counselor, meets with her and several other recently murdered teens to help them resolve their unfinished business and move on to whatever comes next (for most, being reborn and having another chance at life).  Sarah might have been able to move on, but after discovering the identity of her murderer and learning that her dad’s life is in danger, she decides to interfere – with help from her dead friends – which has serious consequences.  A suspenseful, but lighthearted murder mystery that pokes fun at the afterlife.
