"I have never read a book more gripping, nor a book more triumphantly alive. I love how it haunts me still. I swear, I will never forget The Dead I Know."
--John Marsden, author of Tomorrow, When the War Began

* "Despite the heavy topics explored in the novel . . . Gardner writes with sensitivity and in a way that is accessible to teens. With humorous interactions and their unwavering belief that Aaron is worthwhile, Mr. Barton and his daughter, Skye, help him appreciate life in the midst of death and tragedy. A darkly funny book."
--School Library Journal, starred review

* "Each plotline is woven skillfully in among the others, and each is resolved with gravity, dignity and care. The sense of family--both found and lost--is palpable throughout. Simply told and powerfully moving."
--Kirkus, starred review

* "Gardner's rich novel combines flashes of dark humor, an elusive narrator, and a carefully rendered supporting cast to create profound moments that will linger in readers' minds."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Gardner's descriptions of funeral work compellingly mix dark humor and a respectful tone. Aaron's mother's health, his dark past, and the question of whether he can embrace his new life combine in an engaging through line that will engross readers."

"Moments of warmth and humor lighten the psychological suspense and frank depiction of death in Gardner's engrossing novel."
--Horn Book

* "Despite hints of the past and hope for the future, the story remains firmly grounded in the present, with a sense of immediacy that draws the reader in . . . Readers looking for a tightly crafted character-driven story will happily find themselves making friends with the darkly strange Aaron."
--Bulletin, starred review
