Description

Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby is a teenage grim reaper with the bizarre ability to Damn souls. That makes her pretty scary, even to fellow Grims. But after inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex is a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home. To escape the townspeople's wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex. Her best chance at escape would be to stop Zara once and for all--but how can she do that from DeMyse, where the Grims seem mysteriously oblivious to Zara's killing spree?show more

Review quote

Praise for Scorch "An amusing blend of whimsy and humor with serious drama and blood." --Kirkus Reviews "Characters are always as clever as we wish we were. . . . An irresistible blend of impending doom, irreverent humor, hormone-fueled make-out sessions, and creative world-building make this sequel stronger than its predecessor and will leave readers dying for the next book." --SLJ Praise for Croak "Go ahead and die laughing, knowing that the safe transport of your mortal soul will be the summer job of a sweetheart teen with godlike power and discipline problems. A lot of books make me wish I could live within their pages, but I wouldn't mind dying in this one." --Adam Rex, author of Fat Vampire "Creepy and hilarious." --VOYA, 4Q, 5P Praise for Rogue "A gut-wrenching, laugh-out-loud, gritty, honest and brave ending to an appealing trilogy." --Kirkusshow more

Our customer reviews

Reviewed by Janessa, Age 15 Poor Lex is a Grim Reaper, as if being a teenager isn't hard enough, and has already made a major no-no when she accidentally gives her power of damning souls to Zara and then lets her get away. Lex quickly finds herself on the outs socially and only worsening as Zara goes on a damning rampage, leaving no one safe in the small town of Grims. Will she find the book in time that could save more innocent lives before it is too late? Read full review here http://www.musingwithcrayolakym.com/3/post/2013/07/scorch.htmlshow more
