Death is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.
Coming home from a Hawaiian vacation with her best girlfriends, Lucy Fisher is stunned to find everything she owns tossed out on her front lawn, the locks changed, and her fiancé’s phone disconnected—plus she’s just lost her job. With her world spinning wildly out of her control, Lucy decides to make a new start and moves upstate to live with her sister and nephew.
But then things take an even more dramatic turn: A fatal encounter with public transportation lands Lucy not in the hereafter but in the nearly hereafter. She’s back in school, learning the parameters of spooking and how to become a successful spirit in order to complete a ghostly assignment. If Lucy succeeds, she’s guaranteed a spot in the next level of the afterlife—but until then, she’s stuck as a ghost in the last place she would ever want to be.
Trying to avoid being trapped on earth for all eternity, Lucy crosses the line between life and death and back again when she returns home. Navigating the perilous channels of the paranormal, she’s determined to find out why her life crumbled and why, despite her ghastly death, no one seems to have noticed she’s gone. But urgency on the spectral plane—in the departed person of her feisty grandmother, who is risking both their eternal lives—requires attention, and Lucy realizes that you get only one chance to be spectacular in death.

Favorite book ever
Not only do I love this book (has been my favorite for years) but I love the author. Everything that Laurie Notaro writes is absolutely hilarious! Repeatedly I've lent out my paperback of Spooky Little Girl, to many friends who have themselves loved everything Mrs. Notaro has written. In fact I had to buy this ebook since I wanted to reread it and a friend it currently borrowing it. All of her books are filled with comical genius, but the book There is a slight chance I might be going to hell, is my next recommendation.
As a long time Idiot Girl and fan of Laurie Notaro's, this might be her best book yet.
I was sorry for it to end.
