Hello, I Must Be Going – Dyan Sheldon

Dyan Sheldon says that all her writing for young adults “comes from personal experience. I thought I would outgrow these experiences – but they keep happening.” She is the author of many books for teen readers, including CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN and MY PERFECT LIFE, as well as a number of stories for younger readers. She also writes for adults. American by birth, Dyan Sheldon lives in London.

A tender, witty ghost story – and an exciting new direction for the internationally bestselling author of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

“Dyan Sheldon is smart and generous, tough and funny.” The New York Times

Celeste and Sorrel, Reuben and Orlando: high school friends who hang out together all the time. When Sorrel gets hit by a car one rainy night, it’s not surprising the others fall apart in various ways. But it’s not just grief they’re struggling with – it’s parents. Unfair, demanding, challenging parents who are, quite frankly, making their lives a misery. That’s why Sorrel decides she’s not going to be properly dead till she’s sorted out her friends’ lives and can leave them with a clearer sense of what they want out of life. From the bestselling author of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, this is a tender comedic ghost story which touches on some important issues, like bullying, coming out, and the life-denying way the old want to live through the young and impose their failures on them. It’s about the importance of being the person you want to be – or else, being miserable.
