Lex, Driggs, and the rest of the junior reapers are on the run trying to find Zara before she gets her hands on the Wrong Book. Zara needs it to complete her power takeover and is killing lots of innocents to convinced Lex to hand it over.

I got bogged down in the middle of this one and quit reading for about a month. It was okay but started to feel a bit soap opera like and lost most of the snarkiness that characterized the first book Croak, and kept me interested. I’m glad I finished but this is certainly a place holder in the series. Some plot issues are wrapped up, but others are opened wide, waiting to be resolved in book three. I’m buying the third one for the high school but I can wait for the summer to read it.

Lex definitely isn’t the same after the events that happen in Croak. Trouble seems to follow her everywhere, and Zara seems to be one step ahead all the time. Not only is Lex and her group of friends trying to keep away from Zara, but the jerks in her town turn on them and want their heads.

DeMyse is a Grim town completely different that Croak. Everything is flashy and full of life. But the mayor DeMyse has his own secrets, and they could be damning (literally).

So many surprises in this book, and the ending…. I must get my hands on Rogue soon! ( )

I love love love this series. This sequel picks up very soon after the last book ends. Lex wants to go back to Croak but feels weird about leaving now that her twin sister was killed. Her father gives her his blessing to go and find the person who did this.

As she returns to Croak, Lex finds herself an outcast her Uncle under fire from some of the townspeople and Zara is continuing to kill and damn people and now she is turning her sights to Croak. Can Lex find a way to clear her name and save her new town?

This 2nd book in the Croak series packs all the same humor, suspense and mystery. New characters are introduced and play an active role in the story line. The plot is getting more complicated, with more intensity and more at stake.

I just can't say enough about how creative, and inventive this series is. Gina Damico has found the voice of so many teens and packed them into this riviting, mysterious series. ( )

Driggs whispered to Lex out of the side of his mouth as they walked, "I never got grounded before you came here."
"You never touched a boob before I came here either."
"Touché." He flashed a goofy grin as Uncle Mort shoved him into his room and slammed the door. "Worth it!”



Damico, I applaud you for writing the second book in a trilogy without it suffering with a bad case of the dreaded Middle Book Syndrome.

What I liked:

- ROAD TRIP! The Juniors and Uncle Mort are on the run and head straight to De Myse (I still can't get over how awesome all these names are, hurrhurr), something that looks like...

Lex had never been to Las Vegas, but even she knew that this place was Las Vegas times ten. On crack. It was as if the town had been placed in a blender with a giant disco ball, shaken with a Mardi Gras parade, and then had vomited a pile of glitter and tinsel all over itself.

- Lex and Driggs and Mort. They're the terrifying threesome, and hilarious. Lex & Driggs's hormones are all over the place and poor Uncle Mort has to play the part of Extraordinary Cockblocker, which is, needless to say, cringe-worthy and hilarious.

- The plot. It just keeps going and going and going until you hit the end and you're like, "Whoa, bro, what just HAPPENED?!" Which I did say. Frequently. Over and over again. All the clues start to build up and it's just awesome.




What I didn't like:

- Ferbus is really getting on my last nerve. Screw you, Ferbus.

- How quickly the town turned against the Juniors. Granted, 50% of them never liked the "evil" kids, but still. It seemed a bit... unfair. I KNOW. LIFE IS UNFAIR. WHATEVER.



Full review to come on 100% Rock!
