Description

She died wearing white, now it's time for your funeral. Rory is your average high school senior. Or she was, until her mother banishes her to hell, also known as Trumbull, Connecticut. The small suburb with only a mall and movie theater, sure feels like the netherworld until Rory's first day at her new school. That's the day she meets Bowen, who begs her to join him on a class project. But when Bowen drags her to a graveyard after dark for research purposes, Rory wants to fly back home to Atlanta, or at least return to her aunt's house unharmed and unmolested. Nothing could go wrong, right? They talk, they laugh, and they wander among the tombstones looking for information on the local ghostly legend known as the White Lady. Then they have to run, but they cannot outrun a ghost.

A half buried dead body and the ghostly apparition lead Rory and Bowen into a deadly game of cat and mouse, but who is the killer? Is it human or something long dead and otherworldly? The police are of little help, Rory's aunt just wants her to remain safe, and Bowen, who she can't stay away from, keeps finding ways to get her into more trouble than she has ever known. Whether breaking into a suspected killer's house, being followed by a menacing ghost, or being stalked at school, Rory hopes finding the killer will put an end to the supernatural haunting. Before Rory can discover the identity of the killer, she is drawn into the mystery of the White Lady, which opens the door for some very real danger.

Review quote

5-STAR REVIEW for Wear White to your Funeral by Lisa Acerbo Emma Balter - Language Arts Instructional Specialist, Madison Middle School Lisa Acerbo's latest young adult novel, Wear White to your Funeral is a perfect combination of mystery, romance and page-turning excitement. From the first chapter, Acerbo sets the team at a local high school and allows us into the heart and mind of her protagonist, Rory Martin. Rory is a relatable teen character with whom the reader connects immediately. Acerbo's dialogue is top notch, and it is through this venue that the reader is drawn into Rory's world, including her new found relationship with Bowen, a boy with "spiky hair and piercing blue eyes" tattooed with the quote "Do not go gentle into that good night."
