Parker Posey begins her narration in a soft, flat tone that perfectly matches the character of Charlotte Usher, who feels invisible in her high school before she flatlines from choking on a gummy bear. Still seeking popularity, the deceased Charlotte can't let go of her crush on Damen or face the reality that in a postmortem high school of dead teens she’s STILL unpopular. Posey nurses the wry humor of the novel’s stereotypes—from wannabe to super cool. Her voice strengthens and her pace quickens during the witty dialogue between Charlotte and various disdainful ghosts. Posey also dramatizes the heightened emotions during conversations between Charlotte and Scarlet, a living Goth girl who seeks the invisibility that comes naturally to her ghost friend.
