Exquisite Corpse by Penelope Bagieu
translation by Alexis Siegel
Twenty-something Zoe is stuck in a dead-end job, with a deadbeat boyfriend and no prospects for a better future. She doesn't read much, either, which is the reason she doesn't recognize that the oddly reclusive writer she meets by chance.
It's also the reason that she doesn't know that the author she meets is supposed to be dead.
Sexy, poignant, and silly in spots. The ending made me laugh.
Though written and marketed for adults, mature teens will enjoy it.
