Publisher's Summary

Fed up with her wild behavior, 16-year-old Lex’s parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than shoveling manure. He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach Lex the family business.

She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. But Lex can’t stop her desire for justice - or is it vengeance? - whenever she encounters a murder victim, craving to stop the attackers before they can strike again. Will she ditch Croak and go rogue with her reaper skills?

    "Too young for this young adult"

    Admittedly I am not this books target audience, but I love me some young adult novels. It's my guilty pleasure...don't tell. But this book was painful. It's written from the idealized point of view young teenagers have about life as an "adult." Which unfortunately isn't believable or relatable. This could have been overlooked however,if characters were written well and likable. The adults do not behave how they should in any conceivable scenarios. This is extremely evident with in the first chapter where lex's parents restrain her with jump ropes at the dinner table. It also didn't help that I had solved the mystery before half the book was over and dissolved to desperately searching for spoilers online to check I was right so I could stop listening.

    This was not my favorite book and I would not recommend it to anyone.

    I can be summed up in one word. Handsome, intelligent, honest, humble, brave, exciting, fun, kind, trustworthy, sexy! All these words work.

    Story
    "Inconsistent . . ."
    What disappointed you about Croak?

    The characters reactions and actions are inconsistent. Like her parents tie her up with a jump rope to talk to her because she is dangerous, but no other real precautions were made to make her behave. The humor seems labored. The plot is spotty and doesn't drive the story. The characters are one dimensional. The premise is interesting, but the execution is flawed. Unfortunately, I bought the first and second books together in a sale.

    "I am so glad there is a #2"

    Loved it. It was interesting from beginning to end, but it leaves you on a cliff hanger so be ready for #2

    "Teen girl becomes a Grim Reaper"

    Saves the world. Gets the boy. Some unexpected and original twists keeps this from being a common "teen angst meets the supernatural" story. Well worth a listen.

    "Entertaining"

    I was engaged, I liked the characters and liked how the story flowed. The narrator did a good job. There was a fair amount of teenager wailing and whining and I thought the narrator handled that well. Many YA books I just have to stop listening to because of a narrator's high pitched whining was more than I could handle. I liked this story and just purchase the next two in the series since they were on sale.

    "A great story"

    It is so nice to find a storyline so different from most out there anymore. Buying the next book as soon as I finish this review.

    "great"

    Love the sarcasm! Love the historical character references, funny! Love the lighthearted spin on what is usually a "grim" tale.

    "Great book!"

    This book really has everything I would look for in an audiobook-a great story that's easy to follow along, a strong narration, and fast enough to keep you constantly engaged. This was one that was hard to "put down" for me. It was an easy read with a good story line, and I bought the second in the series the second I finished the first one.
