Jenna’s Gang of Deadheads is the second book in the World of Deadheads series, written by Paul Atreides. After Jenna Wilson slips on the stairs, tumbling to her death, she is unable to believe her luck when she sees the deceased love of her life, Marvin Broudstein. Jenna and Marvin had been about to tie the knot before he’d been hit by a bus, and so they decide to plan the very first ever deceased-wedding, much to the surprise of their Deadhead friends. But with so many laws to adhere to in the afterlife, Jenna has much to learn. The most important law of never interfering with the fate of the living is quickly broken, after Jenna sees a woman being beaten in the street. After her first (and only) warning, she inadvertently changes the fate of both the victim and her abuser, and now faces judgment from the World Council of Keepers. With Jenna determined to marry Marvin at all costs, she prays that she can convince the Council that what she had done was an accident, and nothing more.
With a combination of drama and humor in Paul Atreides’ second book, I cannot help but eagerly await the third installment of the World of Deadheads series. Marvin’s interactions with the dead when he was newly-deceased kept me laughing throughout, but Jenna’s mishaps in death created a whole new level of both hilarity and seriousness, which has turned the series into a definite must-read. I found it both touching and amusing when Jenna went off the rails after discovering her clothes, worn in life, being packed into boxes and given to charity. I also could not help but feel for the waitress in the diner, who thought she might be going insane when things appeared and disappeared before her very eyes. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every page and, with so many answers about this version of the afterlife being provided, recommend Jenna’s Gang of Deadheads to all fans of great humor in this action-packed, suspenseful adventure which is filled with laughs, right through to the very end.
