Lex is angry, she's gone from a grade A student to beating up anyone and everyone in her way. Her parents. twin sister and school are at their wits end and bundle her off to stay with her Uncle Mort.
What follows is an entertaining romp, with no let up, an escapist listen if you like romance, an outcast teen with extraordinary paranormal powers who shakes things up in sleepy supernatural Croak.
Lex has attitude she made me laugh, I especially fell in love with Uncle Mort and how he handles her wayward behavior. It has just the right amount of light humor and dark edginess that kept me listening.

It isn't that I disliked the book - I liked it. But I had a couple of issues.
a) There was a LOT more teenage angst than I anticipated - a little more than I could comfortably stomach - but I'm an old man so don't go by that.
b) The whole Grim-Reaper thing is getting a little overdone - how many different ways are there to tell the same story?
c) I can understand ending a book leaving hooks for sequels, but I really object to a book that stops cold and leaves you totally hanging, trying to force you to buy the sequel. This is the second book in a row that used that trick, and because it pisses me off I am not buying the sequels.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I read this book first and then decided to listen to it. I love the story, The main character is a teen girl who up until lately has been a model student and daughter. no spoilers here, but suffice it to say there is a reason she went weird, and it makes for an interesting story!
Downside: While the reader definitely has the teenage voice down she kind of distracted me from the story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Lex's partner, he really brought out the best in her.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Like I said, it was distracting.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The end, I'm not giving any spoilers!
