Dino comes face-to-face with his ex-best friend, after a year apart, in his family's mortuary, as he's putting her make-up on for her funeral. To his complete surprise, she sits up and promises she's not dead. The organs tied up in a bag inside her empty chest cavity beg otherwise. And so begins a hilarious adventure of these two friends as they careen around Palm Springs, Florida witnessing people not-die, getting into accidental? break-ups, digging up bodies, trying to figure out why July isn't dead, and the list continues. There's a surprising heartwarming aspect to the story, too, as both July and Dino learn what it means to be friends, to grow-up, to take ownership of our own lives, and to be in a relationship.
HILARIOUS! I'm not usually one for laugh-out-loud-funny books, but The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried does a great job of being all funny and a little serious.
