Excellent, Young Adult, Steven Arntson
Gabriela doesn’t quite know what she wants to be when she grows up. But after receiving her departure letter—the notification that she will be guided to the afterlife by the mystical, gray creatures called Deaths—she might not have time to figure it out. She only has seven more days to live, and in that short week she decides to help her and her three friends finally receive their first kisses, try to gain a pardon, and avoid death. In order to achieve all these things, Gabriela must figure out the cryptic hints her Death, Hercule, sent her. With the help of Hercule and her friends and family, Gabriela succeeds in all her goals and lives to find out who she wants to be.
