Dead Rules
by Randy Russell

Till death
Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were in love. They were destined to be together forever.
But Jana's destiny was fatally flawed. And now she's in Dead School, where Mars Dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom, with his beguiling blue eyes, mysterious smile, and irresistibly warm touch.
Michael and Jana were incomplete without each other. There was no room for Mars in Jana's life—or death—story. Jana was sure Michael would rush to her side soon.
But things aren't going according to Jana's plan. So Jana decides to do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true—no matter what rules she has to break.

My Opinion: Absolutely fascinating!
This is one book I loved reading from the first to the last page!
I don't remember what made me buy this book since I'm so not a romance reader especially in the Young Adult genre but I am so happy I gave it a try!

Jana Webster loves Michael Haynes, they are perfect for each other, they can't live without another, they are the modern Romeo & Juliet that everone envies. Until Jana dies in a stupid accident and wakes up in a bus going to Dead School. This school for dead kids isn't that much different from normal school: there are different groups of students, classes, homework, a cafeteria and of course rules. But while on the Planet teenagers talk about their life, in Dead School they talk about their death.
Jana feels alone at school, the love of her life isn't with her and she's ready to do anything in her power to change that... even if it means killing.
But what are those strange notes on her notebooks? Something about a murder... .

I truly enjoyed this novel. The Dead School, its students, its rules were so fascinating. The author managed to create an interesting and rich universe that I couldn't get enough of.
The heroine was nice enough though her naivety and obsession with her boyfriend were a bit irritating sometimes. I actually liked Mars and Wyatt, two Sliders aka "bad boys she shouldn't talk to" who will help her in her quest to see and talk to Michael, a lot more.

Dead Rules is a gripping, interesting and exciting page-turner.

To summarize: In case you still have doubts, yes, I do recommend it!!!
