The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried by Shaun David Hutchinson
Expected Publication: February 19th 2019
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
A good friend will bury your body, a best friend will dig you back up.
Dino doesn’t mind spending time with the dead. His parents own a funeral home, and death is literally the family business. He’s just not used to them talking back. Until Dino’s ex-best friend July dies suddenly—and then comes back to life. Except not exactly. Somehow July is not quite alive, and not quite dead.
As Dino and July attempt to figure out what’s happening, they must also confront why and how their friendship ended so badly, and what they have left to understand about themselves, each other, and all those grand mysteries of life.
3 REASONS I’M EXCITED FOR THE PAST AND OTHER THINGS THAT SHOULD STAY BURIED
- Shaun David Hutchinson. I read We Are the Ants and The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza last year and adored both.
- “A good friend will bury your body, a best friend will dig you back up.” Best tagline ever?
- It sounds a little bit like Undead Girl Gang, which I loved last year, so combined with know much I’ve enjoyed his past books, I’ve basically had this on my TBR forever.
