Can a gift also be a curse? Kip Campbell isn't sure. He knows that there is something special about him; he knows that most people don't hear the dead talking to them. And he is glad that he can help them move on by resolving things left unsaid or undone while they were on this earth. But to be honest, he is a little tired of it. After all, he is twelve now, he has other things to worry about. Like how Drew wants to go on a date with him, and how the new funeral home down the street is threatening to put his father out of business. Even a promise of his weight in gold doesn't satisfy him, but there is one problem with Kip trying to quit: Can you really quit a job you never applied for?
