Praise

Praise for The A-Word: A Sweet Dead Life Novel

“Light, snarky, and heartfelt… The A-Word rolls along cheerfully through Halloween pranks, high school football, investigative reporting, angel-powered action, and a very realistic amount of aimless driving around.”
—School Library Journal

“Sassy, smart-mouthed, cowboy-boot fan Jenna Samuels is back once again, fighting evildoers with the aid of her angelic cohorts….. has many of the elements that made its predecessor, [The Sweet Dead Life], so much fun.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“[The Sweet Dead Life series] presents a fresh and humorous look at angels, sibling relationships, romance and the paranormal.”
—The Woodlands Online

“The earthbound angels are as authentic as the down-to-earth people in The A-Word, but where the book really spreads its wings is in the interaction between the two. Resourceful teens and heavenly beings team up to get to the roots of a very modern mystery, and the big questions of the universe share space with first dates and football games. The result: a smart, original (and slightly celestial) mystery with a distinctly Texan flavor.”
Michael Northrop, author of Trapped and Surrounded by Sharks

“Joy Preble gives it all! Humor, wit, emotion, and romance! Fabulous fun!”
—New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan

“Romance, sassy humor, and a pain-in-the-rear brother … Who knew having a guardian angel could be so hard and so much fun to read?”
New York Times Bestselling Author C.C. Hunter

Praise for The Sweet Dead Life


“A smart, sassy, supernatural mystery chock-full of heart, hope and fun.”
New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Leitich Smith

The Sweet Dead Life is mischief and mayhem, zippy one-liners, mystery and a tiny bit of tragedy. A-word: Awesome.”
—E. Lockhart, author of Fly On The Wall

“There’s a whole lot going on here: poisonings, blackmail, sibling relationships, romance, and abandonment, in addition to angels, but the unifying thread is Jenna’s clever, bitter, self-aware, and loving voice … Preble’s lively descriptions and unusually well-drawn, caring sibling relationship (a topic not usually explored in teen fiction) are especially noteworthy.”
Booklist

“Bizarre? Yes, very. Fun to read? Yes, very.”
The Examiner

“Hallelujah! A paranormal tale of angels that’s not a romance, making it a novel that breaks the mold.”
Kirkus Reviews
