More Details
Status: Finished  |  Genre: Fantasy  |  House: Booksie Classic
I've had this novel in my head for a really long time, and I've been dying to put it down on paper! Will update regularly, seeing as it is Summer time! Summary and warnings below!
Two more things:
1- Would any of you be interested in an audio recording? If so, please comment and let me know!
2-I am in the process of making a cover! Will post when it's done!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Warnings: Mild language, sensitive themes (death, suicide, murder, afterlife), violence, machine guns, tearjerkers.

Summary: Flo Jones is no one special, certainly not someone you would write a biography on. Just like three-quarters of the world's population, her life isn't all that eventful.
Her afterlife, on the other hand, is a different story.
After dying unexpectedly, Flo wakes up in the Underworld, a place not so unlike its 'Northern' neighbour- except for the teensy, tiny fact that two Mafia-like groups are battling for dominance within it. Against her intuition (but not quite against her will),she goes from being your average teen to becoming a soldier for one of the undead Mafia clans. Smuggling AK47s in violin cases becomes as familiar to her as her locker combination used to be. Quotes from The Godfather replace her everyday speech. And all the while, she begins to befriend (read:fall in love) with the Consigliere, a flirty playboy. But some-thing's not right in the Underworld, and Flo finds herself as a fly tangled up in the web of a spider, that's easy to see.
Finding out who the spider is, however, is not so simple. When the recently dead start disappearing, and strange happenings number in the dozens, skeletons start knocking on the closet door. They want OUT. And Flo's the only one with the key.
