    Actual rating: 4.5 Stars! I will always be the first in line for a new Shaun David Hutchinson novel. However, I was a little late in getting to this one, I will admit. But of course, I absolutely loved it! Stay tuned for a full review coming soon! ...

    3.5 stars. Dino and July were best friends, absolutely inseparable. Until everything changed, and their friendship ended. For a year, July was dead to Dino, and he focused on his new boyfriend, Rafi, and Rafi's group of friends, although he couldn't help feeling like something was m...

    3.5 Dino DeLuca's family owns a funeral home, so from a young age he learned to spend time with the dead. Dino's situation if far from perfect and is giving him a lot of trouble: he does not know what to do with his life, his parents want him to be a mortician and he is confused a...

    I think this is the most underwhelmed I?ve felt about any Shaun David Hutchinson book to date, which is disappointing. The book has an interesting premise, Dino?s ex-best friend July comes back to life the day before her funeral and they talk about things they never did when she wa...

    Zombies + Shaun?s name = a no brainer for me, but for this I was left wanting. I liked Dino and July well enough. They?re both so stubborn and even though at the root of all of this, they?re stupidly loyal to each other, their relationship felt a little toxic. I really liked ...

    So I was going to open this review on a whole tangent about how long I?ve been reading Shaun David Hutchinson but when I went onto Goodreads, I realized I haven?t even READ ALL OF HIS BOOKS because I am a terrible person. But, in some ways, opening an SDH book is so familiar and co...

    4 Stars This played out in my head like an awesome coming-of-age teen movie from the 80s or 90s, which, if you know me, is like the highest praise because I fricken love that kind of shit! Teenagers July and Dino used to be best friends, until they weren?t. Now, almost a year ...

    Thank You Edelweiss for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review I think it's finally happened. I've found a Shaun David Hutchinson book that isn't a full five stars for me, which is a shame because Hutchinson has been a significantly consistent for me since ...

    3-1/2 stars Dino?s ex-best friend, July Cooper, died a week ago, and his family?s funeral home is where her body has been sent for preparation and burial. Dino agrees to do July?s makeup for the funeral, even though he has no desire whatsoever to follow the family profession. ...

    4.5/5 I may be a *bit* biased considering Shaun is my favorite author/I'm definitely his #1 fan at this point, but I still would have loved this without those pre existing factors. Dino is used to being around the dead. His parents run a funeral home, so its a daily occurrence ...

    "Love is gradual and sneaky. It grows like weeds between the cracks of a hundred average moments." I love this title more than the kids that I don't have. And I love this book just as much. It was different than Shaun's other books, but still a typical Hutchinson YA novel. Queer tee...

    This book was so fun! 4.5 stars! As I was reading it I couldn't help thinking about how it is like a guilty pleasure. The storyline is familiar, it's sometimes a bit cheesy, yet overall you can't help but love it. At times July was super unlikable and you wonder how these two...

    Do you like to read books about messy friendships featuring major character undeath and a lot of grave-digging? The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried is what you're looking for - and yes, it's exactly as weird as it sounds. This is a story about two teens who have very d...

    Ugh. Shaun David Hutchinson knows how to make me laugh and cry and be entertained. His stories are always so unique, with this weird tiny scifi element that you really would never expect. And it's always kinda comical, but it's always full of heartfelt moments that shake my heart. Th...

    I decided to listen to this one on audio book, as its only 6 hours and I could squeeze it in at the end of the month. I ended up listening to it all in one day, it was SO good! This was my first Shaun David Hutchinson book and I will definitely be reading more from him in the fu...

    this was a mess. honestly, I?m being generous here. p.s. props to the audiobook narrator for a 10/10 trump impression in the last chapter. this part right here: ?The president tried to take credit for it, calling it ?the greatest miracle in the history of miracles. There?...

    3.5 stars Alright so this book was weird . I've read Hutchinson's We Are the Ants and loved it. It was kinda weird too. But this one takes it up a notch. I was quite surprised about how even after being focusing around death the book didn't get depressing . Dino and July , th...
