Cindy is just a normal eleven-and-three-quarter-year-old. At least until she wakes up one night and finds out she s dead. Well, she isn't technically dead she just doesn't have any hair . . . or a nose . . . or skin. Yep all bones, no body. Human by day and skeleton by night, Cindy is definitely cursed. And because her mother recently died, Cindy has no one to turn to except a father who s now scared of her and an evil stepmother who makes her do the housecleaning with a toothbrush. To make matters worse, the Spring Fling dance is approaching, and Ethan, the cutest boy in sixth grade, doesn t seem to know Cindy exists. Of course, Cindy doesn t think letting Ethan find out she s part skeleton is the best way to introduce herself. While facing such perils as pickled pig s feet, a wacky fortuneteller, and a few quick trips to the Underworld, Cindy is determined to break the curse even for a single night. What ensues is a hysterical tale of a young girl who, while coping with the loss of her mother, embarks on a journey of self-discovery, love, and forgiveness."show more
