Newes from the Dead

by Mary Hooper was a great book. Mystic told me I HAD to read it and she was right. It's about a servant girl in 1650 England who is accused of a crime for which she is sentenced to hang. Her body is given to doctors for dissection. The only problem with that is she's not dead. However, she's not able to communicate to them that she's still alive.

The book is based on a real girl who really did survive a hanging.

This was the best library book I've read so far after "Thirteen Reasons Why."
