Author: Emily Horner
Publisher: Dial Books
Release Date: 2010
When aspiring Broadway songwriter Julia dies in a sudden car accident, she leaves behind her magnum opus, a musical about ninjas titled "Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad." Her friends band together to produce it -- except for Julia's best friend Cassie. She's too confused about her feelings for Julia, and she doesn't fit in with the theater nerds. It just gets worse when Heather, Cassie's arch-enemy from middle school, gets cast as the ninja princess. Cassie can't deal; she packs her belongings, and Julia's ashes, onto her Bianchi touring bicycle and sets off across the country. The story cuts back and forth between her bicycle trip with her dead best friend and her reluctant participation in "Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad," where she discovers that Heather might not be who she always thought.
There are Ninjas! Musicals! Roadtrip! The title is so awesome, too. It is also a Tenner book! I am so excited for this.
