Driving with Dead People is a strange book to say the least. It started off with Monica (the main character) overly interested in the death of a young girl. Her father had read about it but wouldn't tell her what happened. That was strange because her dad has a creepy obsession with dead people. He will actually stop and film car accidents. Monica decided to talk her grandma into taking her to the girl's funeral, which is really wierd. She didn't even know the girl but the girl looked a little bit like her. I also found out that Monica is in the 3rd grade and still wets the bed. She also believes that her family wouldn't care at all if she died. So she obviously has a difficult family life. I believe that I will learn about more about her family life next and maybe know why she thinks her family doesn't like her.
