Scorch

Gina Damico

Teenage grim reaper Lex and the rest of the residents of a magical upstate–New York town return for this entertaining follow-up to Croak (2012). After inadvertently transferring her ability to Zara, a murderous outlaw, Lex becomes a pariah in Croak, the little town she calls home. She tries to redeem herself among her fellow Grims by finding renegade Zara, who is indiscriminately damning souls, and stopping her once and for all. But how can Lex be a hero when so many of her fellow Grims have turned against her because of her own misdeeds?
