Book Description

Meg Finn is in trouble, unearthly trouble. Cast out of her own home by her stepfather after her mother's death, Meg is a wanderer, a troublemaker. After a botched attempt to rob a pensioner's flat, Meg and her partner in crime, Belch, end up in a very sticky situation. Meg's soul is up for grabs as the divine and the demonic try every underhand ploy imaginable to claim it. Her only chance of salvation is the Wish List. But how can she persuade the pensioner Lowrie to help her when she has wronged him? Even if she can persuade him, will she really have enough points to face up to St Peter?

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » An abused teen and a bitter old man find affection and redemption in this heartwarming . . . slapstick comedy? A bungled robbery leaves Meg and her pathetic partner Belch dead. Belch goes straight to hell, but Meg dies perfectly balanced between good and evil. She's given one last chance to save her soul by bringing some meaning to the last days of her intended victim, crotchety old-timer Lowrie. Soppy, perhaps, but for the humor of Lowrie's delinquent tasks for Meg, from trespassing to fisticuffs. Helping Lowrie won't do Meg much good if each of her good deeds moves her a little bit closer to hell. And Belch, more moronic than ever, has been sent back by Beelzebub to guarantee her failure. Worse, the temptation to use her reprieve for some late vengeance against her abusive stepfather might overwhelm Meg's mission. A lightweight and moving chuckler. (Fiction. 11-14) (Kirkus Reviews)
