Ever since Logan found out that his uncle was involved in the accident that killed Logan's dad, he's been full of resentment. He cuts his uncle out of his life and finds that being reckless is the only way to feel anything. Looking for a place to drink, underaged and undisturbed, Logan and his friends break into a house they think is abandoned. What they find there gets them into trouble with the law and causes Logan's girlfriend to break up with him. But it also makes Logan face up to his anger and his need to forgive and be forgiven.

"Overall, Dead To Me is one that reluctant tween or teen readers will be able to read with interest and with ease."

- Karyn Miehl, CM Magazine: Canadian Review of Materials

"Author Cristy Watson has a good sense of edgy situations... Her crisis situation where four teenagers discover the seriously decayed body of a lonely old man is really quite compelling... this is a believable story and her characters are very real."

- Resource Links Reviews, Volume 22, Number 4

"I'd recommend this book to people who keep grudges, because this is a great example of just letting go!"

- Rizzie Star, Netgalley Reviewer

"I think this is a good addition to a school or public library. Quick-reading, with characters teens can identify with and a lesson that isn't preachy or condescending, Dead to Me is definitely recommended."

- Colleen M., Librarian NetGalley Reviewer
