Life After Theft
Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto.
I did have to give Santa Monica points for the redhead I'd spotted at school, though. Serafina, Kimberlee had said. Man, she was gorgeous. But I couldn't even think about her for more than a few seconds before coming back to the same humongous problem that suddenly overshadowed every aspect of my life.
I wondered if Santa Monica had any good exorcists.
No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.
Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Aprilynne Pike.

Praise for Life After Theft
"Yes yes yes yes yes."
--Miss Snark, the Literary Agent, on Chapter One
"...this brisk, down-to-earth thriller should appeal equally to male and female readers."
"[S]nippy arguments between Kimberlee and Jeff capture authentic teen voices. Furthermore, Jeff’s journey to real empathy takes on issues crucial and relevant to teens: the price of popularity, the importance of being true to one’s beliefs, and the need to stand up for others."
