Girl meets boy at a car wash. David Macinnis Gill delivers the whole enchilada. With a side of soul.
"Dog," she says.
"Dude," he says.
And probably this would have been a sweet teen romance. . . .
If Beals hadn't been sitting next to her in the car.
If Beals hadn't been a supernatural repo man looking to repossess her car.
And to possess her.
Girl meets boy at a car wash.
David Macinnis Gill delivers the whole enchilada. With a side of soul.
A rip-roaring ride through a zany supernatural world involving ******'s second-in-command as a repo man, a sassy mixed race pizza delivery girl, and a car wash guy who's not what he seems will be a treat for young adult readers. Eunice "Bug" Smoot doesn't have much left of her family, just a coveted Cadillac from her grandfather, and is struggling to pay the rent on her awful little room when she discovers that her car, and her soul, are about to be repossessed by ******'s flunkies. Struggling to find a way out, she turns to her crush, Pesto, for some underworld help. With seriously funky and hilarious writing, this is a Kirkus Best Young Adult Book of 2009.
