Waiting on Wednesday #30 Croak

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Croak (Croak, #1)Title:  Croak
Author: Gina Damico
Release Date: 20 March 2012
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby has sucker-punched her last classmate. Fed up with her punkish, wild behavior, her parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than that of shoveling manure.
He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach her the family business.
Lex quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated entirely by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. Along with her infuriating yet intriguing partner Driggs and a rockstar crew of fellow Grim apprentices, Lex is soon zapping her Targets like a natural born Killer.
Yet her innate ability morphs into an unchecked desire for justice—or is it vengeance?—whenever she’s forced to Kill a murder victim, craving to stop the attackers before they can strike again. So when people start to die—that is, people who aren’t supposed to be dying, people who have committed grievous crimes against the innocent—Lex’s curiosity is piqued. Her obsession grows as the bodies pile up, and a troubling question begins to swirl through her mind: if she succeeds in tracking down the murderer, will she stop the carnage—or will she ditch Croak and join in?
Why I want it:  The family business is reaping? Awesome. And love the cover. It may not be a dress, but that hoodie is  to die for. No pun intended.
What are YOU waiting on this week?

  3. I've actually been looking forward to this one, too! I have a wide range of tastes, reading all across the genres (despite the more contemporary feel of my choices today lol). My CP wrote a Grimreaper story and ever since, I've been in love with the concept. I think this may be my new fav paranormal. And that cover? Bad ass :-)
