Back of the Book:
There's no way sixteen year old Quincy Amarante will become the fifth grim reaper. None. Not over her shiny blue Mustang. Her Jimmy Choos. Or her dead body.
She’s supposed to enjoy her sophomore year, not learn about some freaky future Destiny says she has no choice but to fulfill.
It doesn’t take long for Quincy to realize the only way out of the game is to play along especially since Death can find her anyway, anywhere, anytime. And does.
Like when she’s reassuring her friends she wants nothing to do with former best friend Ben Moorland, who’s returned from god-knows-where, and fails. Miserably.
Instead of maintaining her coveted popularity status, Quincy’s goes down like the Titanic.
Maybe ... just maybe ... that’s okay.
It seems, perhaps, becoming a grim reaper isn’t just about the dead but more about a much needed shift in Quincy’s priorities—from who she thinks she wants to be to who she really is.
MY COVER COMMENTS
I love this cover, all the white and the girl in the middle looking so innocent even though she has a large
reapers scythe "hidden" behind her back! The cover picture depicts young people therefore suggesting this is aimed at the young adult/teenage market. Again we have the quote on the cover too "Death calls at the most inconvenient times" The cover and the quote suggest that there may be a little humour injected into this book that deals with death. It makes me want to pick up the book and read it to know more!
