Review: Peter Green and the Unliving Academy

Peter Green and the Unliving Academy: This Book Is Full of Dead People






Fourteen-year-old Peter Green can’t remember how he died. 

All he has are his pajamas, a silk tie, and a one-way bus ticket to Mrs. Battisworth’s Academy and Haven for Unliving Boys and Girls, a strange and spooky school for dead orphans like himself. But that’s all he needs: the Unliving Academy has everything, from vampires in the hallways, to monsters in the cafeteria, to ghosts in the basement.

And that’s just the teachers; the students are far stranger.

As Pete learns to fit in with his new supernatural schoolmates, he starts to discover his own uniquely undead abilities, and even begins enjoying his life after death…but he just can’t shake the feeling that he’s forgotten something (or somebody!) important.

Somebody he left behind in the land of the living.

Somebody he loved very much.

Somebody who’s in terrible danger. 

Peter Green and the Unliving Academy is the captivating first installment of Angelina Allsop’s Unliving series of young adult fantasy novels. If you like reading about fun-filled adventures, fully realized new worlds, and the most unlikely of heroes, you’re sure to love Allsop’s spirited coming-of-age tale.

Fans of Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, the Charlie Bone Series by Jenny Nimmo, and The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton will enjoy this young adult fantasy series.

You’ll love the Peter Green series if you like reading these types of books:

– Young adult and YA fantasy novels.
– Ghosts, zombies, and mythical beasts
– Young adult adventure stories

Rating: 4-stars


Peter Green and the Unliving Academy by Angelina Allsop is a bizarre yet highly engaging read. The pages are full of strange new things to discover. The school and its inhabitants are unique. No one student or faculty member is the same. A young boy finds himself in purgatory, dead. His journey takes him to the Unliving Academy. There he enjoys himself just like Harry Potter enjoyed Hogwarts. The writing is entertaining. Some parts are hilarious, scary, and mysterious. I never knew what to expect from one page to another. However, I cannot wait to read the next adventure in this new series. From young to middle school, students will enjoy reading this book. I sure did. Overall, the writing was fantastic and the characters were the best part.
