Pushed to their limits with her wild behavior, sixteen-year-old Lex's parents send her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer. They hope that a few months of dirty farm work will result in a change of attitude. But Lex finds that Uncle Mort's true occupation is much dirtier than shoveling manure. It just so happens that he is a Grim Reaper, and he is planning to teach Lex the family business. Lex finds herself quickly assimilating into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. She develops a love/hate relationship with her new partner, Driggs. They stumble across bodies that have no known cause of death. A rogue reaper is apparently the cause, and an investigation with serious consequences ensues. You will be croaking for the sequel!  (South Carolina Young Adult Book Award, 2015,  Prepared by: Alison Patrick, Eastside High School,
