At the B & N Teen Blog, Jenny Kawecki tagged five top Young Adult novels about the afterlife, including:
It’s a Wonderful Death, by Sarah J. Schmitt

RJ is used to the privileges that come with being on top of the social ladder, but it turns out the afterlife might not be quite as accommodating as she’s used to. After getting accidentally collected by a Grim Reaper, RJ is given a choice: wait in limbo until her originally intended death date, or try to fix her life and earn her way back to the land of the living. But when changing her life choices turns RJ from a princess to a pariah, she starts to think that maybe life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Full of snark and a feisty main character, this is a funny-dark read you shouldn’t miss.
