Daisy Cooper’s life has been pretty uneventful – until the moment it suddenly ends. Unfortunately, her death is (literally) an accident: Daisy wasn’t meant to die for another fifty years. One terrible, embarrassing clerical error is behind it – and Death himself is to blame.
As Daisy battles against her new reality, she starts to learn that letting go isn’t just a challenge faced by those left behind. And while she learns how to survive this impossible new reality, friendship, hope and even love begin to come alive in the most unexpected ways.
For Daisy Cooper, death was the perfect time to start making sense of life…
A funny, touching and bittersweet novel about life and death.
Daisy dies suddenly and at the wrong time, at least according to Death’s filing system. As she becomes Death’s assistant, and pops back to Earth to visit her loved ones, she learns a few hard lessons about relationships and living.
Some parts of this book are really sad and quite hard to read, which feels apt as life is full of difficult moments.
As Death becomes more human and Daisy learns to embrace her death (and maybe Death?!?!), her need for the living starts to fade and she understands why most of the dead don’t pop back to see the living.
It’s a really sweet and charming debut and perfect for a little summer time reading.
