Description

Don't call me a demon. I prefer the term Fallen Angel.

Everybody deserves a vacation, right? Especially if you have a pointless job like tormenting the damned. So who could blame me for blowing off my duties and taking a small, unauthorized break?

Besides, I've always wanted to see what physical existence is like. That's why I "borrowed" the slightly used body of a slacker teen. Believe me, he wasn't going to be using it anymore anyway.

I have never understood why humans do the things they do. Like sin--if it's so terrible, why do they keep doing it?

I'm going to have a lot of fun finding out!

Review quote

"Funny and heartwarming. The demon's winning mix of cocksureness and inadvertent bungling should resonate with teens."--Publishers Weekly

Our customer reviews

As humans involved in our daily lives, we often take the world for granted. Our days are filled with boring, humdrum activities. A. M. Jenkins creates a new twist on the mundane in his new book REPOSSESSED. First, meet Shaun, age 17. He is about to take a step in the wrong direction - into the path of an oncoming truck. Next, meet Kiriel, a minor demon in search of a short break from the fires of hell. Put the two together, and you get a whole different view of daily life. Seconds before the actual truck/teen collision, Kiriel slips into Shaun's body. Kiriel, a demon who prefers to call himself a "fallen angel," sees the perfect opportunity to find that needed break from his dull duties. He wants more out of "life." He wants to feel it and experience it first hand. Once in Shaun's body, Kiriel is able to experience what he has only previously observed. This is his first actual look at the world through human eyes. Amazing! There's the feel and texture of everything from food, especially ketchup, to clothing against his skin. Fabulous! And that two-and-a-half hours spent in the bathtub make him wonder why humans don't constantly bathe. Kiriel finds himself wondering how humans can live such exciting daily lives and still express the desire for further adventures. To Kiriel the real world is not all about just the physical experience. As he deals with Shaun's family, a divorced mother and his younger brother, Jason, he learns that love and the emotional side of life can be an unexpected roller coaster ride of its own. A.M. Jenkins's demon makes us see what is really around us and perhaps makes us more understanding and grateful for how precious life is.show more
