Review : Croak

Review Book2.jpg

Graphia Books

From Goodreads : Fed up with her wild behavior, sixteen-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?
My Review: I  loved this book. So much so that I have bought the next two books and devoured them too. Lex is a teen that is hard to relate too because of the uncontrollable violence streak in the beginning of the story, as you read on she seems to become the every teen. Sarcastic and sassy. Her rebellious spirit propels the story and you end up loving her. With writing that just flows so perfectly you do not realize your at the end of the first book till it is closed and your begging for more. With well developed supporting characters this book was a fun and fast read for me and I look forward to more by Gina Damico
