About the Book

Don't call me a demon. I prefer the term Fallen Angel.

Everybody deserves a vacation, right? Especially if you have a pointless job like tormenting the damned. So who could blame me for blowing off my duties and taking a small, unauthorized break?

Besides, I've always wanted to see what physical existence is like. That's why I "borrowed" the slightly used body of a slacker teen. Believe me, he wasn't going to be using it anymore anyway.

I have never understood why humans do the things they do. Like sin—if it's so terrible, why do they keep doing it?

I'm going to have a lot of fun finding out!

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Funny and clever. A quick, quirky and entertaining read.” - KLIATT (starred review)

“Jenkins’s writing remains lean, mean and to-the-point. Kiriel’s search packs an intriguingly deep wallop.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Jenkins works magic on readers. Warm, heartening message of hope coupled with a little rebellion.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Funny and heartwarming. The demon’s winning mix of cocksureness and inadvertent bungling should resonate with teens.” - Publishers Weekly
