Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Hellhole by Gina Damico (HMH Books for Young Readers):
There was a time when geeky, squeaky-clean Max Kilgore would never lie or steal or even think about murder.
Then he accidentally unearths a devil, and Max’s choices are no longer his own. The big red guy has a penchant for couch-surfing and junk food—and you should never underestimate evil on a sugar high. With the help of Lore, a former goth girl who knows a thing or two about the dark side, Max is racing against the clock to get rid of the houseguest from hell before time—and all the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos this side of the fiery abyss—run out. Gina Damico, author of the Croak series, once again delivers all the horror, hilarity, and high-stakes drama that any kid in high school or hell could ever handle.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I absolutely adored Croak and its sequel Scorch (I’ve yet to read the final book, although I hope to get to it soon). Gina Damico has a way of mixing humor with dark subject matter in a completely seamless, flawless manner, and – based on this summary – I’m sure Hellhole will be no different!
Release Date: January 6, 2015
