Dead Like Me Summary
Eighteen-year-old Georgia "George" Lass, a college drop-out working at a temp agency, gets a wake-up call when she dies in a freak accident when a toilet seat from the MIR space station drives her into the ground on her lunch break. George returns to Earth as a reaper; people who have died with unresolved issues, with life lessons yet to be learned. Under the guidance of head reaper Rube, George joins a team of other reapers including Mason, a mischievious bad-boy, street-smart and sassy Roxy, and Daisy, a former actress who met her demise on the set of Gone With the Wind. They walk the city streets and eat at all-night diners, like most people. They look just like everyone else but as grim reapers they appear physically different to the living than they did when they were alive. Through death, George gets a new perspective on life and the after-life. What if death is not the end?
