Description

Praise For Scorch

"An amusing blend of whimsy and humor with serious drama and blood."--Kirkus   Praise for Croak:   "Go ahead and die laughing, knowing that the safe transport of your mortal soul will be the summer job of a sweetheart teen with godlike power and discipline problems. A lot of books make me wish I could live within their pages, but I wouldn't mind dying in this one."—Adam Rex, author of Fat Vampire   "Creepy and hilarious."—VOYA, 4Q, 5P
