On occasion, when I find a great book, I review it here on my blog.
Well, it happened.
This is one I'm passing on to all of my grandkids.
Is there a ‘tween’ in your life who loves to read?
Do they love books that are just a bit on the supernatural –
and fun – side?
Look no further . . .
Midnight Smith, a Hoodie, is going to be one of the best Grim Reapers . . . ever.
If he can just get into Death’s Academy to do it.
But his family history, the new and decidedly attractive Halo girl across the street, the powers that be, and the back-from-the-grave unicorns, are all standing in his way.
Now it is up to ‘Night, his best friend, Mal, and that disturbing new girl, to save the day and the lives and livelihoods of nearly everyone they know.
But can a boy noted only for his skill in Skull Ball unravel the plot that’s been in the making for years? Even generations? Against a group that makes evil look, well . . . evil?
It’s the Hoodies VS the Halos VS the uber-nasty Unicorns, and the fate of the world as we know it quivers in the outcome.
As well as Night’s chances of getting into school.
Told with humour and plenty of action, Death’s Academy is one wild ride from start to finish.
Read it and root for the bad guys for a change!
P.S. Diane was not paid to do this review. But she sure enjoyed reading the book!
