Review #195 // Undead Girl Gang – Lily Anderson

Undead Girl Gang

Mila’s best friend Riley just killed herself. Or, at least, that’s what the police are saying. Mila knows that Riley wouldn’t kill herself, so she believes what could be the only answer: she was murdered. Being Wiccan, Mila resorts to something she never thought of before–necromancy. But when she finally resurrects her best friend, she finds her magic harder to control than she was expecting.


Why this book?: I heard it was queer, and had fat Mexican rep.

Em is also failing in some of her classes, so she asks her new coworker to help her. Soon enough, though, Em can’t decide if she wants to date her new tutor and coworker, or if she wants to be him.


Why this book?: The author said there was ace-questioning and gender-questioning that the protagonist, Em, deals with. I needed that.
