Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Milton and Marlo Fauster die in a marshmallow-bear explosion, they get sent straight to Heck, an otherworldly reform school. Milton can understand why his kleptomaniac sister is here, but Milton is — or was — a model citizen. Has a mistake been made? Not according to Bea “Elsa” Bubb, the Principal of Darkness. She doesn't make mistakes. She personally sees to it that Heck — whether it be home ec class with Lizzie Borden, ethics with Richard Nixon, or gym with Blackbeard the pirate — is especially, well, heckish for the Fausters. Will Milton and Marlo find a way to escape? Or are they stuck here for all eternity, or until they turn eighteen, whichever comes first?

Review:

"Parents and readers...are in for a treat with Dale E. Basye's very funny debut novel." The Wall Street Journal

Review:

"The author's umpteen clever allusions...make this book truly sparkle." Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Synopsis:

After Milton and Marlo Fauster die in a marshmallow bear explosion, they are sent straight to Heck, an otherworldly reform school. Milton can understand why his kleptomaniac sister is here, but Milton "was" a model citizen. Has a mistake been made?
