Description

The devil made 'em do it.

Girl meets boy at a car wash. And probably this would have been a sweet teen romance . . . except that the girl's grandfather sold his soul for a classic Cadillac and he used her soul as collateral, too. Which the devil has come to collect, along with the car. Now eighteen-year-old Bug Smoot has to fight for both. Good thing she knows how to fight dirty. Good thing nothing frightens Bug Smoot: not the repo man, not the paranormal creatures, not sÉances or driving too fast. And good thing that boy from the car wash is actually a supernatural secret agent.

This is one helluva ride.

-Melissa Marr, New York Times Bestselling Author of Wicked Lovely
