L.A. Daily Mirror Retro Shopping Guide

Dead to Me

If you are running a bit late in your holiday shopping, you might consider an advance order of “Dead to Me,” a YA (young adult) novel to be issued by Disney-Hyperion in March.

“Dead to Me” is by Mary McCoy, a longtime friend of the L.A. Daily Mirror, writer on numerous history blogs, top-notch history/genealogy librarian and most recently senior librarian at the L.A. Public Library’s Teen’Scape.

“Dead” has been receiving good advance notice and was praised by Kirkus Reviews: “McCoy’s mystery unfolds slowly and cautiously, offering enough clues—and red herrings—to keep readers hooked. Its conclusion is tidily, perhaps a bit too conveniently, resolved, but against the richly envisioned backdrop of golden-age Hollywood’s sinister underbelly, this minor quibble is easily forgiven.”

It is available for preorder for $17.99 in Southern California bookstores: Vroman’s, Skylight Books and Book Soup; online via Amazon  in hardback ($13.49) and for the Kindle ($9.99).
