¿Alguna vez te has sentido invisible?

Cuando la popularidad es cuestión de vida o muerte...

En el mundo yo era sólo una persona más, pero anhelaba ser el mundo para una persona.

Charlotte Usher se siente prácticamente invisible hasta que un día lo es de verdad. Peor aún: está muerta. Y todo por culpa de un osito de goma. Pero la muerte no impide que Charlotte siga con su plan. Todo lo contrario, se vuelve mucho más creativa y hará cualquier cosa por conseguir su objetivo: ser popular para seducir al chico que ama.

    Starred review from July 14, 2008
    Hurley, an independent filmmaker, debuts with this glittering comedy, a prime exemplar of what might be called demento mori, a growing subgenre of satire about teens who will not or cannot die. Charlotte Usher's plan to catapult herself from the ranks of the invisible to the heights of popularity at Hawthorne High—no possibility for allusion goes unturned—hits a major snag on the first day of school when she chokes to death on a gummy bear. Sent to Deadiquette school along with other teen spirits, she skips out, still determined to woo her longtime heartthrob, never mind that “he doesn't even know I'm alive.” The jokes stay sharp, from the goth girl who gives her a “make-under” to throwaway lines (caught breaking some cardinal rules, Charlotte mutters to herself, “I'm dead”). Plotlines raise the stakes, putting Hurley's consistent wit to the service of classic themes about claiming identity. While the author has a built-in fan base from her ghostgirl Web sites, high-impact design will ensure attention from casual browsers as well. An elaborate die-cut with stamped acetate on the cover dares readers to laugh at a silhouette of a cartoon girl in an open casket, an effect heightened by the extra-tall trim size; inside, pink-and-black graphics liberally adorn the margins, epigraphs to chapter openings, etc. And given the polished dark-and-deadpan humor, it's a natural fit with Gen Y, too. Ages 12–up.
